Frequently Asked Questions
It’s only natural to have a number of questions regarding V5 loans, so we have compiled a series of answers to the more frequently asked questions. Please get in touch to discuss any element of Well End logbook loans further.
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Well End Logbook Loans work is that you use your car as security in order to receive a loan against the value of it. In order to receive the loan you need to own the car yourself (or have very little finance on it) then hand over the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount of up to 80% of the car’s value. You can carry on driving your car throughout the loan period, and once repaid your V5 document is returned to you. They are particularly popular in Buckinghamshire as they can often be available to residents with poor credit scores.
What documents will the provider need?
The process of enquiring for a loan is simple, but you’ll need to make sure that you have all the right documentation. You will need a photo ID as proof of identity, your V5 document for proof of ownership, a copy of your current insurance policy, a recent utility bill in your name to prove your Buckinghamshire address, a current MOT, and either a bank statement or recent payslips to show that you have the income required to successfully repay your loan.
Are Well End 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.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Buckinghamshire loans against your vehicle logbook is that you can prove to the provider that you can afford to make the monthly repayments. This is part of a responsible lending approach that helps ensure you do not default on your payments and risk your vehicle not being returned. Therefore if you are in Well End and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
Does poor credit history affect Buckinghamshire applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Buckinghamshire residents are finding them very popular. As your car is used as security it makes the loan lower risk to the lender so they are more likely to agree to the loan. You will still have your credit checked, but the outcome is normally more positive than if you had tried for a loan elsewhere.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Well 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. Well 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.
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 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.
