Your Questions Answered
Though applying for your Willesden Green logbook loan is a straightforward procedure, we’re sure that you have a number of questions regarding the process so have compiled a series of answers below to the more common queries.
How do Brent V5 Logbook Loans work?
Borrowing against the value of your car, or V5 loans are a form of secured lending where Willesden Green borrowers temporarily transfer ownership of their car via the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount. You need to own the car yourself (although a small amount of finance is allowed) then you simply hand over the V5 document to the lender. You can borrow up to 80% of the car’s current value, and repay the loan in instalments up to 36 months (early settlement is not penalised). V5 loans are popular with Willesden Green residents as they are frequently more accessible to those with lower credit scores that might have been refused elsewhere.
What ID and documents do I need?
Providing logbook lenders with proof of Brent residency, income, car ownership, and identity is vital when you enquire for a loan. It only takes a few minutes, and you can do all of this with a handful of documents. Your photo ID, logbook (or V5 document), current MOT, proof of insurance, a utility bill, and a bank statement or copies of payslips will suffice. Bear in mind that some lenders may ask for additional information for verification purposes, too.
What makes Willesden Green 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 Willesden Green v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Willesden Green loans against cars, you need to own a vehicle that’s registered in your name (or very nearly own it on finance). A perfect credit history and full employment status are not always a strict requirement, however, you must be able to provide proof that you will be able to make the repayments on your Brent loan, without delays. It’s part of a responsible lending culture amongst lenders.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Willesden 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.
What if I can’t prove my income?
Those who are self employed or have little/poor credit history in Brent can benefit from the V5 loans; they simply need to prove that they are able to make the repayments. As part of responsible lending, it’s important for Willesden Green V5 loan applicants to prove that they have the ability to make timely repayments so as to avoid losing possession of their car. 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 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.
What is the repayment duration?
Your loan can be arranged with either a 12, 18 or 36 month duration and since there are no penalties for early repayment you can save money on interest payments by settling the account early.
