How does a V5 Logbook Loan work precisely?
It is a type of secured loan which provides a convenient and simple way of obtaining money for Maesteg residents, and all credit rating is considered. The amount you’re entitled to borrow is normally determined by your vehicle’s value, and the amount you are able to repay, instead of your employment status or credit history. This means that Bridgend residents, even if they’re self employed, or suffer from poor credit rating may still qualify for the loan; provided they can afford to repay it. You basically borrow the cash on an understanding that in case you do not pay the money back in the stipulated time, the lender can re-possess your vehicle.
What exactly will I need to apply?
You will need your logbook, current MOT, driver’s license or other photo ID, proof of income (bank statements or payslips), proof of insurance, and proof of Bridgend residency (such as a utility bill) to successfully enquire about a loan. Although all lenders have different guidelines when it comes to approvals and some may ask you to provide additional documents, these are universal for the prevention of theft and the reduction of risk.
What makes Maesteg 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 Bridgend applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security.

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 Maesteg. 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 Bridgend.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Maesteg V5 logbook loans can be advantageous for borrowers with poor or little credit history. Being unemployed, self employed, having arrears, CCJs, or bankruptcies can make one a bad credit borrower, and the traditional Bridgend lending institutions will most probably refuse your loan application due to the high risk associated. With a loan against your car, you might still qualify even if you have poor credit so long as you can prove you’re able to make the repayments in a timely manner. Responsible lending is designed to help prevent the risk of you losing ownership of your car. Since different people have different circumstances, it’s advisable to to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.
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.
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.
What is the repayment period?
Lending against your car can be quite flexible when it comes to the repayment period. The period or length of repayment available is 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. However, if you have got the means, you are allowed to pay off the loan early without incurring any penalties. The interest is charged on a monthly basis, which means that paying off the loan early results in reduction in the overall amount of money you repay.
