Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Blaengarw logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Blaengarw Logbook Loans work is that you use your car as security in order to receive a loan against the value of it. In order to receive the loan you need to own the car yourself (or have very little finance on it) then hand over the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount of up to 80% of the car’s value. You can carry on driving your car throughout the loan period, and once repaid your V5 document is returned to you. They are particularly popular in Bridgend as they can often be available to residents with poor credit scores.
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.
Are Blaengarw Logbook Loans a good idea for me?
If your circumstances mean that you have been refused a loan elsewhere then applying for this type of loan could help you lend the money you need. By using your car as security, V5 loans are more accessible to Bridgend residents who have less-than-perfect credit scores, or simply need to release some quick money from the value of their car. If you own your car and can afford the repayments then a V5 loan can be a good idea.
Can unemployed Blaengarw residents still qualify for a Logbook Loan?
If you are unemployed and you have had a previous loan application declined, a loan against your vehicle could well be an option. Bridgend V5 lenders may be more tolerant to people with poor credit score and to those who are unemployed. To obtain a loan, you simply need to own a car and provide proof of your ability to repay the loan. The situations of different loan applicants will always vary, therefore it’s best to get in touch directly with the lender when enquiring about a loan.
Does poor credit history affect Bridgend applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Bridgend residents are finding them very popular. As your car is used as security it makes the loan lower risk to the lender so they are more likely to agree to the loan. You will still have your credit checked, but the outcome is normally more positive than if you had tried for a loan elsewhere.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Blaengarw 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. Blaengarw 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.
What about car maintenance during the loan?
Although a logbook lender does reserve the right to take possession of your car if you default on your payments, if you are current, you are still the owner of the car. As such, all maintenance remains your responsibility, and this includes MOT checks, insurance, and regular servicing. Your lender will expect normal wear and tear along with additional mileage on the car, but if anything should significantly reduce the car’s value, you will be expected to report that change to the lender as soon as possible.
Do V5 Loans show up on HPI checks?
V5 loans should show up on any HPI checks, and are displayed as a Bill of Sale agreement. However, this isn’t always the case. In case you conduct the HPI check, and follow the purchasing guideline, then you’ll be protected by the HPI guarantee in case it turns out that there’s a V5 loan against the vehicle.
How long are the loan repayments?
Logbook lending repayment periods can take up to 36 months, which means that you get to spread the repayment for a long period of time. You can decide to make your repayments based on the schedule you’re comfortable with. You can choose the 12 months repayment period, the 18 months repayment period or the 36 months repayment period. Also, if you choose to repay the loan early, you will not be penalised.
