Keston Mark V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Keston Mark logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Keston Mark 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 Bromley as they can often be available to residents with poor 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 Bromley 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.
Why are Logbook Loans a good idea?
They are often a good type of loan for Keston Mark borrowers with bad credit scores because they consider all credit hostory. If other loan lenders refuse to offer or give you a loan because of your current credit score, why not apply for a V5 loan? If you own a car and want a loan that considers all applicants, Bromley V5 document loans could be the perfect solution. With this type of loan, you do not even have to go through the long and arduous processes you’d have with the banks.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Bromley 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 Keston Mark and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
What about Bromley residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Bromley loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Keston Mark billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Keston Mark logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Bromley V5 lenders will not offer you a loan unless they are certain that repayments can be made. This is to avoid you going in to arrears and risking losing your car. If you can’t prove your income then get in touch today to discuss your options and see if you’re eligible for a V5 document loan.
During the loan, who maintains the car?
A v5 loan is a type of secured loan that is provided to you based on the value of your car. Because you are able to maintain possession of the car throughout the loan duration, it is also your responsibility to maintain it. Maintenance includes continuous insurance coverage, regular servicing, and MOT checks as required. Although your lender is aware that some additional mileage and wear and tear is possible, anything above and beyond normal depreciation should be reported to your lender immediately.
Are Logbook Loans visible on a HPI check?
A HPI check should clearly show a loan present as a ’Bill of Sale Agreement’. A rule was introduced that requires all Bromley lenders to register any active loans against a vehicle with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find that there is an existing loan against your vehicle which was not visible on a HPI search then under the HPI guarantee you are entitled to a 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.
