How do Shenley Brook End Logbook Loans work?
The way Buckinghamshire loans against cars work is you use your car as security for getting a loan. The only thing you need to hand over is the logbook (also known as V5 document) of your vehicle. The logbook is held by the lender as collateral, and you get to keep and use your vehicle throughout the agreement. The document is then returned to you when you finish repaying the loan. Loans are available throughout Buckinghamshire and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
When applying, what do I need to provide?
When it comes to enquiring about a loan, lenders often have different requirements, but the basics are the same across the board. You should have access to your photo ID, car insurance policy, current MOT, logbook, bank statements or payslips, and a current utility bill that is in your name. These things provide the lender with proof of your identity, ownership, Buckinghamshire residency, and income – and they’ll need it to get you approved.
Why are Logbook Loans a good idea?
They are often a good type of loan for Shenley Brook End borrowers with bad credit scores because they consider all credit hostory. If other loan lenders refuse to offer or give you a loan because of your current credit score, why not apply for a V5 loan?

With this type of loan, you do not even have to go through the long and arduous processes you’d have with the banks.
Can I qualify for Buckinghamshire car logbook loans if I am unemployed?

I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Shenley Brook End applicants who can prove that they can afford the monthly repayments. It’s a way of trying to avoid accounts entering into arrears and even the repossession of a vehicle. Shenley Brook End v5 logbook loans are only offered to those who can prove that they can make the repayments, so if you have trouble doing so it’s best to get in touch to discuss the best option for your lending needs.
What about car maintenance during the loan?
Although a logbook lender does reserve the right to take possession of your car if you default on your payments, if you are current, you are still the owner of the car. As such, all maintenance remains your responsibility, and this includes MOT checks, insurance, and regular servicing. Your lender will expect normal wear and tear along with additional mileage on the car, but if anything should significantly reduce the car’s value, you will be expected to report that change to the lender as soon as possible.
Will a V5 Loan show up on a HPI check?
Logbook loans should show up on a HPI check. They show up as a Bill of Sale agreement, and it’s a requirement for Buckinghamshire lending companies to register them with companies like HPI. Nowadays, it’s very important to perform a thorough check on the car’s history. If you do a HPI check and a loan taken against the vehicle doesn’t show up, and you buy the vehicle, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee which provides you with a financial reimbursement of up to £30,000.
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.
