If you have any questions regarding any element of Lenborough V5 loans then please get in touch via the form above. We’ve also compiled a list of frequently asked questions which should help answer any queries you may have.
So how does a Logbook Loan work?
A loan against your car, or V5 loan is a very straightforward way to lend money, especially for Buckinghamshire residents who have had more traditional loan applications refused. Quite simply, you use your car’s V5 document as security to lend money against the value of your car. Anything up to 80% of the current market value can be borrowed, and repayments can be spread over 12, 18 or 36 months. What’s more, you can continue to drive your vehicle throughout the loan period, and upon completion your V5 document is returned.
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.
Why opt for Lenborough Logbook Loans?
Unlike other types of loan, the requirements needed for borrowing against your vehicle are minimal. You simply need to meet a few requirements; that is, you must be of the legal age, and own a car (or have very little finance remaining) which you can offer for collateral. If you meet this criteria and live in Buckinghamshire, you are free to apply for this type of loan. So long as you are the car owner, you may be able to obtain the loan even if you’ve a history of default. The amount of money you can borrow normally depends on the value of the car you’re using for security. Also, if you’ve finance on the car already, some Lenborough loan lenders might still lend you some money, so long as the car is worth more than what’s owed on it.
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 Lenborough and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
What about Buckinghamshire 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 Buckinghamshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Lenborough billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
Does it matter if I can’t prove my income?
You need to be able to prove to your logbook lender that you can afford the monthly payments. Part of being a responsible lender is that they will only lend money to Lenborough applicants who can afford to make the monthly repayments. Lenborough v5 loans are only offered if the lender can be sure that the repayments are affordable, which helps avoid accounts going into arrears and the possibility of car repossession. Get in touch today to see what your options are if you’re finding it hard to prove your income level.
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.
Will my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?
All loans such as Lenborough V5 loans should show up on a HPI search as a Bill of Sale Agreement. A ruling was introduced that requires Buckinghamshire lenders to register every loan with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find there to be a loan against your vehicle which did not show up on a HPI search, then you will be entitled to up to £30,000 according to the HPI guarantee.
How long are the repayment terms?
The length of repayment available for car v5 loans includes; 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. These repayment terms offer you adequate time so that you can make budget friendly repayments every month. The interest is charged on a monthly basis and you will not incur extra charges by paying off the loan early. In fact, it’s better to repay in advance, since by doing so, you will end up repaying much less overall in terms of monthly loan interest.
