How Logbook Loans work - V5 Loans explained
A logbook loan is a type of secured lending where a borrower transfers ownership of their vehicle, to the lender as the security for the loan. How much Brithdir residents can borrow depends on just how much their car is worth; some Caerphilly lenders can let you borrow up to 80% of what the car will fetch in the current market, however, terms and conditions normally vary from one loan lender to another. While making the repayments, you get to keep possession of your car and continue using it. When the loan is fully repaid, you regain ownership of your car.
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, Caerphilly residency, and income – and they’ll need it to get you approved.
Are Caerphilly 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. Caerphilly 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 Brithdir V5 Loans a great idea for many.

Does poor credit history affect Caerphilly applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Caerphilly 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.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Caerphilly 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 Brithdir 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.
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.

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.
