If you have any questions regarding any element of East Ilsley V5 loans then please get in touch via the form above. We’ve also compiled a list of frequently asked questions which should help answer any queries you may have.
How do Berkshire Logbook Loans work then?
The premise of borrowing against your car is simple... use your car’s V5 title document as security to lend against the value of your car. In fact you can lend anything up to 80% of the car’s value up to a maximum of £50,000. The application process is simple, and this type of loan is popular among East Ilsley residents as they are often accessible to those with poor credit scores as the vehicle is used as security. Once your loan is repaid, you receive your V5 document back and carry on as normal.
What documents will the provider need?
The process of enquiring for a loan is simple, but you’ll need to make sure that you have all the right documentation. You will need a photo ID as proof of identity, your V5 document for proof of ownership, a copy of your current insurance policy, a recent utility bill in your name to prove your Berkshire address, a current MOT, and either a bank statement or recent payslips to show that you have the income required to successfully repay your loan.
Are V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
Absolutely, especially if you have had a loan refused elsewhere due to a poor credit history/score. As your car is used as security you may find that Berkshire logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout East Ilsley. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
What about East Ilsley V5 Loans and unemployment?
It can be difficult for the unemployed to take out any type of loan. As part of a responsible lending approach Berkshire logbook lenders need to be satisfied that you can make the payments every month so you minimise any risk of losing ownership of your car. As all situations are different, it is advised that you get in touch via the form on this page to discuss the lending options available to you.
Does my poor credit score affect my East Ilsley loan application?
A poor credit score normally means refusal for any other type of Berkshire loan, however when looking at these type of loans you may find that it is easier to be accepted even with bad credit history. Using your car as security for the loan means the lender is facing less risk and so they are more likely to lend against your vehicle. You will still undergo a credit check, but the outcome will not always mean refusal. Apply online today to find out!
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to East Ilsley applicants who can prove that they can afford the monthly repayments. It’s a way of trying to avoid accounts entering into arrears and even the repossession of a vehicle. East Ilsley v5 logbook loans are only offered to those who can prove that they can make the repayments, so if you have trouble doing so it’s best to get in touch to discuss the best option for your lending needs.
Car maintenance - whose responsibility?
During the entire period of your loan, it is your responsibility to maintain the car. The lender does not and will not take possession of the car unless you default on your payments. As part of your agreement, you should ensure that your car is regularly serviced, that MOT checks are completed, and that you maintain proper insurance throughout the entire period of your loan. If any of these things do not occur for any reason, or if the value of your car decreases substantially due to damage or a mechanical failure, you should notify your lender.
Are Logbook Loans visible on a HPI check?
A HPI check should clearly show a loan present as a ’Bill of Sale Agreement’. A rule was introduced that requires all Berkshire lenders to register any active loans against a vehicle with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find that there is an existing loan against your vehicle which was not visible on a HPI search then under the HPI guarantee you are entitled to a reimbursement of up to £30,000.
What are the repayment terms for the loan?
Borrowers generally get the option of tailoring their repayment plans according to their budget and needs. The standard repayment terms starts from 12 months to 36 months with an option of 18 months if needed. The interest is usually charged on a monthly basis, but if you repay the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges.
