V5 Car Loan FAQs
There are a number of questions we receive regarding Whitchurch 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 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 Whitchurch 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.
On application, what documents will I need?
Many people have questions about the types of documents and information they’ll need to enquire about a loan. Fortunately, the process is simple and requires only a few basic documents. A photo ID, proof of insurance, your logbook, a current MOT, a utility bill, and your bank statement will typically suffice. Bear in mind that different lenders may have different requirements, so make sure you have access to the documents they might request.
Why are Logbook Loans a good idea?
They are often a good type of loan for Whitchurch 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? If you own a car and want a loan that considers all applicants, Buckinghamshire V5 document loans could be the perfect solution. 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 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. Whitchurch 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.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Whitchurch 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.
Does it matter if I can’t prove my income?
You need to be able to prove to your logbook lender that you can afford the monthly payments. Part of being a responsible lender is that they will only lend money to Whitchurch applicants who can afford to make the monthly repayments. Whitchurch v5 loans are only offered if the lender can be sure that the repayments are affordable, which helps avoid accounts going into arrears and the possibility of car repossession. Get in touch today to see what your options are if you’re finding it hard to prove your income level.
Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.
Will a Logbook Loan show on a HPI check?
Buckinghamshire lenders are required to register all loans against a car with companies such as HPI, so they should all show up (normally as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement) on a search. If for any reason you discover a loan on your new car that didn’t show up on a HPI check then their guarantee will reimburse you up to £30,000.
What periods of repayment are available?
In order to suit most repayment needs your loan can be repaid over 12,18 or even 36 months. As interest is charged monthly, there is no penalty for paying off your loan, so repaying your loan faster results in a reduction of the overall cost.
