Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Maypole logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How do Maypole Logbook Loans work?
The way Bromley loans against cars work is you use your car as security for getting a loan. The only thing you need to hand over is the logbook (also known as V5 document) of your vehicle. The logbook is held by the lender as collateral, and you get to keep and use your vehicle throughout the agreement. The document is then returned to you when you finish repaying the loan. Loans are available throughout Bromley and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
What documents do I need to apply?
When you enquire about a loan, lenders do their best to not only prevent fraud, but also to reduce risk. For this reason, you will need several different documents. Your government-issued ID, a copy of your logbook, proof of insurance, a utility bill for proof of Bromley residency, a current MOT, and proof of income are all requirements when you enquire. Make sure you have the most recent versions of these for the best chances of being approved.
Are V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
Absolutely, especially if you have had a loan refused elsewhere due to a poor credit history/score. As your car is used as security you may find that Bromley logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout Maypole. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
Can I get a Logbook Loan if I am unemployed?
If you have tried to apply for Bromley personal loans at the mainstream sources like banks, and you have been refused you should consider applying with a logbook lender. Even if you are unemployed, you will still be considered. Maypole Logbook lenders are interested in your current ability to repay the loan, which means even if you have a bad credit history and you are not employed, you might still qualify. You simply need to prove that you can afford the repayments so as to avoid extra charges, delays, and the possible repossession of your car.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Maypole 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, Bromley residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Bromley 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 Maypole 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. If you don’t have a perfect credit score, you might still be eligible to borrow so long as you are in a position to prove that you’re able to repay your loan. 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 Bromley.
Who is responsible for car maintenance?
Most logbook lenders will ask that you maintain your car so that the value remains the same (or close to the same) throughout the duration of the loan period. This maintenance includes regular servicing, MOT checks, and automobile insurance, among other things. You will need to notify your lender if anything reduces the value of your car significantly, including damage or mechanical problems. However, your lender will expect some additional mileage and the usual wear and tear throughout the loan term.
Do HPI checks show Logbook Loans on them?
All HPI checks should show loans against the vehicle on them as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement as Bromley lenders are required to register them with companies such as HPI. If you have carried out a HPI check and later find that there is a loan attached to your new vehicle then you are covered by a HPI guarantee which will reimburse you up to a maximum of £30,000.
What are the repayment terms for the loan?
Borrowers generally get the option of tailoring their repayment plans according to their budget and needs. The standard repayment terms starts from 12 months to 36 months with an option of 18 months if needed. The interest is usually charged on a monthly basis, but if you repay the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges.
