How exactly do Berkshire Logbook Loans work?
A loan using your V5 document is a loan that’s secured on your car, so the lender owns your car until you repay the loan. When taking out a loan of this type, you’ll be asked by the lender to hand over the car’s V5 registration document or logbook. You can keep using your car as you repay the loan. You won’t get the logbook back until you have cleared the debt. If you default on the loan payments, your car can be seized by the lender.
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 Berkshire V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
If you’ve a bad credit history, and you’re unable to obtain a loan via the more conventional means, like a bank, you should consider enquiring about a loan against your car. Although they still require credit checks, Mortimer residents with bad credit history can apply and might still be eligible for a loan. As a matter of fact, your loan application is normally considered approved provided you’re eligible, and you meet the few loan requirements. You can actually get approved very quickly, and at times even get money on the same day.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Berkshire loans against your vehicle logbook is that you can prove to the provider that you can afford to make the monthly repayments. This is part of a responsible lending approach that helps ensure you do not default on your payments and risk your vehicle not being returned. Therefore if you are in Mortimer and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
Does credit score affect loan applications?
If you have a poor credit score then you might have already been refused a loan elsewhere. Though disheartening it shouldn’t put you off applying for Mortimer V5 loans, as using your car as security for the loan often means a more relaxed acceptance level. Your credit history will still be checked, but as long as you live in Berkshire and own the car outright (or with minimal finance left) then you have a good chance of being able to borrow against it’s value.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Berkshire V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Mortimer applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
Who should maintain the car?
When you agree to a loan, you also agree that you will continue to maintain the car while it is in your possession. This maintenance should include regular servicing, maintaining insurance at all times, and necessary MOT checks. Some normal wear and tear, along with additional mileage, is to be expected, but you should maintain your car to the same value it had when you took the loan. This means that if significant damage or mechanical failure should occur and reduce the value of your car, you should notify your lender right away.
Will my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?
All loans such as Mortimer V5 loans should show up on a HPI search as a Bill of Sale Agreement. A ruling was introduced that requires Berkshire lenders to register every loan with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find there to be a loan against your vehicle which did not show up on a HPI search, then you will be entitled to up to £30,000 according to the HPI guarantee.
How long do the repayment terms last?
Repayment terms start from 12 months to 36 months. 18 month repayment periods are also available. The larger the loan amount you borrow or apply for, the more flexible the loan repayment terms will be. If you are able to pay off the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges. As a matter of fact, it’s advisable to pay off the loan in advance since you will pay much less money in terms of monthly interest, in the long run.
