Since different people have different situations, it is important to get in contact to discuss your particular needs.
Is it my responsibility to maintain the car?
When you get a loan, your lender provides you with funding based on the value of your car. Your car becomes collateral that the lender can possess to recoup its losses in the event that you default on loan. Because of this, it is your responsibility to continuously carry insurance on that car, to have it serviced, and to have regular MOT checks. All of these things help to maintain your car’s value, which is important to the lender. If something should have a significant impact on your car’s value, you should always report this to your lender as soon as possible.
Will a V5 Loan show up on a HPI check?
Logbook loans should show up on a HPI check. They show up as a Bill of Sale agreement, and it’s a requirement for Blaenau Gwent lending companies to register them with companies like HPI. Nowadays, it’s very important to perform a thorough check on the car’s history. If you do a HPI check and a loan taken against the vehicle doesn’t show up, and you buy the vehicle, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee which provides you with a financial 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.
