V5 loans are particularly popular with those who have less than favourable credit scores.

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.

During the loan, who maintains the car?

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.
Will a HPI check show a Loan?
Any loans taken out against the car are normally recorded on a database which is known as the HPI Index where anybody can check for the vehicle’s history prior to purchasing it. When you do a HPI check, you will get to know the vehicle’s true financial history. The HPI check report will also show you the vehicle’s history including; whether the logbook is legitimate, insurance write-off, previous number of owners, previous number plate changes, potential mileage discrepancies, and more.
What is the repayment duration?
Your loan can be arranged with either a 12, 18 or 36 month duration and since there are no penalties for early repayment you can save money on interest payments by settling the account early.
