How Logbook Loans work - V5 Loans explained
A logbook loan is a type of secured lending where a borrower transfers ownership of their vehicle, to the lender as the security for the loan. How much Woodley residents can borrow depends on just how much their car is worth; some Berkshire lenders can let you borrow up to 80% of what the car will fetch in the current market, however, terms and conditions normally vary from one loan lender to another. While making the repayments, you get to keep possession of your car and continue using it. When the loan is fully repaid, you regain ownership of your car.
On application, what documents will I need?
Many people have questions about the types of documents and information they’ll need to enquire about a loan. Fortunately, the process is simple and requires only a few basic documents. A photo ID, proof of insurance, your logbook, a current MOT, a utility bill, and your bank statement will typically suffice. Bear in mind that different lenders may have different requirements, so make sure you have access to the documents they might request.
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 Woodley. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
Can I still get a V5 Loan even if i’m unemployed?
Yes, Berkshire residents could still get a loan although you will still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments every month to avoid losing your vehicle. Responsible lending approaches mean the lender needs to be satisfied that you aren’t going to risk gong into arrears.

I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Woodley loans, you may be able to borrow by using your V5 document as security. Such loans work on the idea that if you have a car, you can use it as collateral to obtain a loan. Because of this, Berkshire residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Berkshire loan lenders. Moreover, the loan application process is simple, the necessary requirements are straightforward, and you can often get access to your money on the same day.
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 Woodley 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.
Do V5 Loans show up on HPI checks?
V5 loans should show up on any HPI checks, and are displayed as a Bill of Sale agreement. However, this isn’t always the case. In case you conduct the HPI check, and follow the purchasing guideline, then you’ll be protected by the HPI guarantee in case it turns out that there’s a V5 loan against the vehicle.
What is the repayment period?
Lending against your car can be quite flexible when it comes to the repayment period. The period or length of repayment available is 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. However, if you have got the means, you are allowed to pay off the loan early without incurring any penalties. The interest is charged on a monthly basis, which means that paying off the loan early results in reduction in the overall amount of money you repay.
