V5 Car Loan FAQs
There are a number of questions we receive regarding Water Eaton 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 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 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 Water Eaton V5 Loans a great idea for many.
Can I still get a V5 Loan even if i’m unemployed?
Yes, Buckinghamshire residents could still get a loan although you will still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments every month to avoid losing your vehicle.

You will still undergo a credit check, but the outcome will not always mean refusal. Apply online today to find out!
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Water Eaton logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments.

Who is responsible for car maintenance?
Most logbook lenders will ask that you maintain your car so that the value remains the same (or close to the same) throughout the duration of the loan period. This maintenance includes regular servicing, MOT checks, and automobile insurance, among other things. You will need to notify your lender if anything reduces the value of your car significantly, including damage or mechanical problems. However, your lender will expect some additional mileage and the usual wear and tear throughout the loan term.
Do HPI checks show Logbook Loans on them?
All HPI checks should show loans against the vehicle on them as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement as Buckinghamshire lenders are required to register them with companies such as HPI. If you have carried out a HPI check and later find that there is a loan attached to your new vehicle then you are covered by a HPI guarantee which will reimburse you up to a maximum of £30,000.
What is the repayment period?
Lending against your car can be quite flexible when it comes to the repayment period. The period or length of repayment available is 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. However, if you have got the means, you are allowed to pay off the loan early without incurring any penalties. The interest is charged on a monthly basis, which means that paying off the loan early results in reduction in the overall amount of money you repay.
