Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Orchard Leigh logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
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 Orchard Leigh 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 documents do I need to provide?
Enquiring about a loan is easy and only takes a few minutes of your time. You’ll need to provide some personal information along with a copy of your photo ID, your logbook (or V5 documents) most recent MOT, proof of car insurance, proof of Buckinghamshire residency, and proof of income. These things will all help lenders verify your identity and ownership, and it will also help lenders decide what type of loan you can qualify for.
Are Orchard Leigh Logbook Loans a good idea for me?
If your circumstances mean that you have been refused a loan elsewhere then applying for this type of loan could help you lend the money you need. By using your car as security, V5 loans are more accessible to Buckinghamshire residents who have less-than-perfect credit scores, or simply need to release some quick money from the value of their car. If you own your car and can afford the repayments then a V5 loan can be a good idea.
Can I get a Logbook Loan if I am unemployed?
If you have tried to apply for Buckinghamshire 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. Orchard Leigh 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.
My credit score is poor, can I still get a loan?
Even if you have a bad credit rating you may still find you qualify for a V5 loan in Orchard Leigh. Your vehicle is used as security so the loan is deemed lower risk when compared to other forms of lending. Though you will still be credit checked, it is often the case that loans are approved despite a poor credit history, which is why these loans prove so popular throughout Buckinghamshire.
What if I can’t prove my income?
In order to be eligible for Orchard Leigh V5 loans the lender needs to be sure that you can afford the repayments. Responsible lending is important to ensure you don’t fall into arrears or risk losing ownership of your vehicle, and if the lender cannot prove this then you won’t be offered a loan. In circumstances such as this it’s always best to get in touch direct using the form you can see on this page.
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.
Do Logbook Loans show on a HPI check?
Yes. It is a requirement for all Buckinghamshire lenders to register each and every loan via companies such as HPI. In the unlikely event that you discover your new car to have a loan attached to it that didn’t show up on a HPI check then you will be eligible for up to £30,000 reimbursement in accordance with the HPI guarantee.
What are the repayment durations?
You can choose to repay your loan in either 12, 18 or 36 month instalments. What’s more there is no penalty for settling your loan early so you could save money on monthly interest payments by repaying your loan sooner.
