Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Stoke Mandeville logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How do Buckinghamshire V5 Logbook Loans work?
Borrowing against the value of your car, or V5 loans are a form of secured lending where Stoke Mandeville borrowers temporarily transfer ownership of their car via the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount. You need to own the car yourself (although a small amount of finance is allowed) then you simply hand over the V5 document to the lender. You can borrow up to 80% of the car’s current value, and repay the loan in instalments up to 36 months (early settlement is not penalised). V5 loans are popular with Stoke Mandeville residents as they are frequently more accessible to those with lower credit scores that might have been refused elsewhere.
What exactly will I need to apply?
You will need your logbook, current MOT, driver’s license or other photo ID, proof of income (bank statements or payslips), proof of insurance, and proof of Buckinghamshire residency (such as a utility bill) to successfully enquire about a loan. Although all lenders have different guidelines when it comes to approvals and some may ask you to provide additional documents, these are universal for the prevention of theft and the reduction of risk.
Are Buckinghamshire Logbook Loans really a good idea?
If you’re looking for some quick money, and have been refused a loan elsewhere then a V5 loan can be a good idea to release the funds that you need. Buckinghamshire applicants with less than ideal credit scores often find that their loans requests are accepted and they can release the value in their cars. As your car is used as security against any repayments, then you’re more likely to be accepted than with other loan types, making Stoke Mandeville V5 Loans a great idea for many.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Stoke Mandeville 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.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Stoke Mandeville loans, you may be able to borrow by using your V5 document as security. Such loans work on the idea that if you have a car, you can use it as collateral to obtain a loan. Because of this, Buckinghamshire residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Buckinghamshire loan lenders. Moreover, the loan application process is simple, the necessary requirements are straightforward, and you can often get access to your money on the same day.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Buckinghamshire V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Stoke Mandeville applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
During the loan, who maintains the car?
A v5 loan is a type of secured loan that is provided to you based on the value of your car. Because you are able to maintain possession of the car throughout the loan duration, it is also your responsibility to maintain it. Maintenance includes continuous insurance coverage, regular servicing, and MOT checks as required. 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 Logbook Loan show up on a HPI check?
An HPI Check is a car check which is provided by HPI ltd. which scrutinises the history of motorised vehicles that are registered in UK including vans, motorbikes and cars. The HPI check report alerts you to any kind of worrying information that’s held against the car by insurance or finance companies, the police, the DVLA, and such other industry bodies. A loan against your car will show as a Bill of Sale Agreement. If for any reason it doesn’t show on a HPI check then the HPI guarantee will offer 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.
