How do Brent Logbook Loans work exactly?
The principal of borrowing against your car (or a V5 loan) in Brent is very straightforward... you use the V5 document of your car as security for a loan against it. Typically you can borrow up to 80% of the car’s value and have a range or repayment durations available. An added bonus of this type of loan is that Hyde applicants can continue to drive their vehicles throughout the loan period, an once the loan is repaid in full the V5 document is returned. V5 loans are particularly popular with those who have less than favourable credit scores.
What documents will the provider need?
The process of enquiring for a loan is simple, but you’ll need to make sure that you have all the right documentation. You will need a photo ID as proof of identity, your V5 document for proof of ownership, a copy of your current insurance policy, a recent utility bill in your name to prove your Brent address, a current MOT, and either a bank statement or recent payslips to show that you have the income required to successfully repay your loan.
What makes Hyde Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Brent applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security. So if you can afford the repayments and need to borrow some quick money then Hyde v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Brent 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 Hyde and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
My credit score is poor, can I still get a loan?
Even if you have a bad credit rating you may still find you qualify for a V5 loan in Hyde. Your vehicle is used as security so the loan is deemed lower risk when compared to other forms of lending. Though you will still be credit checked, it is often the case that loans are approved despite a poor credit history, which is why these loans prove so popular throughout Brent.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Hyde 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. Hyde 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.
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 Brent 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.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan can be arranged with three different repayment durations... 12, 18 or 36 months. Your interest is charged monthly, and there are no penalties for settling the loan early which means you can save money on the total amount payable.
