Kents Hill V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Kents Hill logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
How do Buckinghamshire Logbook Loans work then?
The premise of borrowing against your car is simple... use your car’s V5 title document as security to lend against the value of your car. In fact you can lend anything up to 80% of the car’s value up to a maximum of £50,000. The application process is simple, and this type of loan is popular among Kents Hill residents as they are often accessible to those with poor credit scores as the vehicle is used as security. Once your loan is repaid, you receive your V5 document back and carry on as normal.
What ID and documents do I need?
Providing logbook lenders with proof of Buckinghamshire 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.
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 Buckinghamshire logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout Kents Hill. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Buckinghamshire 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 Kents Hill and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
Does poor credit history affect Buckinghamshire applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Buckinghamshire 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.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Kents Hill logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Buckinghamshire 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.
Am I responsible for car maintenance?
As part of your loan agreement, it will be your responsibility to maintain your car’s value for the entire term. Lenders do expect some wear and tear (as well as additional mileage) since you will keep possession and use of the car, but you should report any significant damage, mechanical failures, or events that depreciate your car’s value significantly. In the meantime, it is also your responsibility to carry insurance at all times, to have regular MOT checks performed, and to have the car serviced.
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 Buckinghamshire 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 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.
