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 Kensal Green 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.
When applying, what do I need to provide?
When it comes to enquiring about a loan, lenders often have different requirements, but the basics are the same across the board. You should have access to your photo ID, car insurance policy, current MOT, logbook, bank statements or payslips, and a current utility bill that is in your name. These things provide the lender with proof of your identity, ownership, Brent residency, and income – and they’ll need it to get you approved.
Why might a Logbook Loan be a good idea?
If you live in Kensal Green, have bad credit history, have been refused a loan elsewhere or simply need some fast money to spend on whatever you like then getting a loan against your V5 document can be a good idea. Using your car as security makes this type of loan more accessible to Brent residents with poor credit scores which is why they are so popular nowadays. So long as you can afford the repayments then they could be the answer to your lending needs.
Can the unemployed secure a Logbook Loan?
Kensal Green 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 Brent 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.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Kensal Green 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, Brent residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Brent 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.
Do I qualify if I can’t prove my income?
To qualify for Kensal Green V5 loans, you need to prove to the loan lender that you can afford to make your loan repayments. Logbook lenders focus on your current ability to afford loan repayments instead of dwelling solely on a perfect credit history.

That being said, it’s advisable to get in contact to discuss your particular situation. You can fill in the form above to hear directly from an advisor about the available options for you in Brent.
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 Logbook Loan show up on a HPI check?
An HPI Check is a car check which is provided by HPI ltd. which scrutinises the history of motorised vehicles that are registered in UK including vans, motorbikes and cars. The HPI check report alerts you to any kind of worrying information that’s held against the car by insurance or finance companies, the police, the DVLA, and such other industry bodies. A loan against your car will show as a Bill of Sale Agreement. If for any reason it doesn’t show on a HPI check then the HPI guarantee will offer reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long are the loan repayments?
