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 Stratfield Mortimer 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 do I need to apply?
When you enquire about a loan, lenders do their best to not only prevent fraud, but also to reduce risk. For this reason, you will need several different documents. Your government-issued ID, a copy of your logbook, proof of insurance, a utility bill for proof of Berkshire residency, a current MOT, and proof of income are all requirements when you enquire. Make sure you have the most recent versions of these for the best chances of being approved.
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 Stratfield Mortimer. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
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 Stratfield Mortimer and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
Does my poor credit score affect my Stratfield Mortimer 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!
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Stratfield Mortimer logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Berkshire V5 lenders will not offer you a loan unless they are certain that repayments can be made. This is to avoid you going in to arrears and risking losing your car. If you can’t prove your income then get in touch today to discuss your options and see if you’re eligible for a V5 document loan.
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.
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.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan repayments can be arranged over 12, 18 or even 36 months. There are no penalties if you wish to settle the account sooner, in fact it is encouraged as interest is charged monthly so you can save yourself money by paying your loan off sooner.
