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 Troearhiwgwair applicants.
So how does a Logbook Loan work?
A loan against your car, or V5 loan is a very straightforward way to lend money, especially for Blaenau Gwent residents who have had more traditional loan applications refused. Quite simply, you use your car’s V5 document as security to lend money against the value of your car. Anything up to 80% of the current market value can be borrowed, and repayments can be spread over 12, 18 or 36 months. What’s more, you can continue to drive your vehicle throughout the loan period, and upon completion your V5 document is returned.
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.
Why are Logbook Loans in Troearhiwgwair a good idea?

Your credit history might not be a negative factor when issuing the approval for your loan application. Generally, approval for lending against your Troearhiwgwair vehicle mainly depends on the make or model of the car that you’re using as security. You can even get money on the same day!.
Can I get a Logbook Loan if I am unemployed?
If you have tried to apply for Blaenau Gwent personal loans at the mainstream sources like banks, and you have been refused you should consider applying with a logbook lender. Even if you are unemployed, you will still be considered. Troearhiwgwair Logbook lenders are interested in your current ability to repay the loan, which means even if you have a bad credit history and you are not employed, you might still qualify. You simply need to prove that you can afford the repayments so as to avoid extra charges, delays, and the possible repossession of your car.
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 Troearhiwgwair 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 Blaenau Gwent 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?
Blaenau Gwent 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 Troearhiwgwair 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 a Logbook Loan show on a HPI check?
Blaenau Gwent lenders are required to register all loans against a car with companies such as HPI, so they should all show up (normally as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement) on a search. If for any reason you discover a loan on your new car that didn’t show up on a HPI check then their guarantee will reimburse you 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.
