Answers To Your Questions
Logbook loans are generally a very straightforward type of loan, but we’re sure you have a number of questions so have compiled answers to some of the common questions we receive from Six Bells applicants.
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 Six Bells residents can borrow depends on just how much their car is worth; some Blaenau Gwent 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.
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 Blaenau Gwent 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.
Why are Logbook Loans a good idea?
They are often a good type of loan for Six Bells borrowers with bad credit scores because they consider all credit hostory. If other loan lenders refuse to offer or give you a loan because of your current credit score, why not apply for a V5 loan? If you own a car and want a loan that considers all applicants, Blaenau Gwent V5 document loans could be the perfect solution. With this type of loan, you do not even have to go through the long and arduous processes you’d have with the banks.
Can the unemployed secure a Logbook Loan?
Six Bells individuals who are unemployed and also have a bad credit score usually have fewer choices when it comes to securing a personal loan. This is because of the fact that during the loan application process in most of the conventional loan lenders, one has to be employed with proof of income, and also a credit record check has to be done. With loans secured against a vehicle, unemployed people in Blaenau Gwent might still be considered for the loan, however, as part of responsible lending, the logbook lender has to assess the loan applicant so as ensure that they are suitable to lend money to.
What about Blaenau Gwent residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Blaenau Gwent loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Six Bells billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Six Bells 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. Six Bells 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.
Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.
Do Logbook Loans show on a HPI check?
Yes. It is a requirement for all Blaenau Gwent lenders to register each and every loan via companies such as HPI. In the unlikely event that you discover your new car to have a loan attached to it that didn’t show up on a HPI check then you will be eligible for up to £30,000 reimbursement in accordance with the HPI guarantee.
How long are the repayment terms?
The length of repayment available for car v5 loans includes; 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. These repayment terms offer you adequate time so that you can make budget friendly repayments every month. The interest is charged on a monthly basis and you will not incur extra charges by paying off the loan early.
