V5 Car Loan FAQs
There are a number of questions we receive regarding Northend logbook loans,so for your convenience we have compiled a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive on a daily basis.
How exactly do Buckinghamshire Logbook Loans work?
A loan using your V5 document is a loan that’s secured on your car, so the lender owns your car until you repay the loan. When taking out a loan of this type, you’ll be asked by the lender to hand over the car’s V5 registration document or logbook. You can keep using your car as you repay the loan. You won’t get the logbook back until you have cleared the debt. If you default on the loan payments, your car can be seized by the lender.
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.
What makes Northend Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Buckinghamshire applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security. So if you can afford the repayments and need to borrow some quick money then Northend v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Northend loans against cars, you need to own a vehicle that’s registered in your name (or very nearly own it on finance). A perfect credit history and full employment status are not always a strict requirement, however, you must be able to provide proof that you will be able to make the repayments on your Buckinghamshire loan, without delays. It’s part of a responsible lending culture amongst lenders.
Does credit score affect loan applications?
If you have a poor credit score then you might have already been refused a loan elsewhere. Though disheartening it shouldn’t put you off applying for Northend V5 loans, as using your car as security for the loan often means a more relaxed acceptance level. Your credit history will still be checked, but as long as you live in Buckinghamshire and own the car outright (or with minimal finance left) then you have a good chance of being able to borrow against it’s value.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Northend V5 logbook loans can be advantageous for borrowers with poor or little credit history. Being unemployed, self employed, having arrears, CCJs, or bankruptcies can make one a bad credit borrower, and the traditional Buckinghamshire lending institutions will most probably refuse your loan application due to the high risk associated. With a loan against your car, you might still qualify even if you have poor credit so long as you can prove you’re able to make the repayments in a timely manner. Responsible lending is designed to help prevent the risk of you losing ownership of your car. Since different people have different circumstances, it’s advisable to to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.
Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.
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.
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.
