Princetown V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Princetown logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
How Logbook Loans work
If you own a car and live in Caerphilly, you could be eligible to borrow against your vehicle. Your car has value, and the v5 document can let you obtain cash against that value. During the set duration of the procured loan, the car basically acts as the security for the loan given; this means that the lender gets to keep your car’s logbook until you complete repaying the loan. They technically own the car for the entire duration of your loan. This protects the lender should any payments be missed. The lender has the legal right to auction the car to recoup his/her costs.
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 Caerphilly 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 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 Princetown V5 Loans a great idea for many.
Can I still get a V5 Loan even if i’m unemployed?
Yes, Caerphilly 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. Responsible lending approaches mean the lender needs to be satisfied that you aren’t going to risk gong into arrears.

My credit score is poor, can I still get a loan?
Even if you have a bad credit rating you may still find you qualify for a V5 loan in Princetown. Your vehicle is used as security so the loan is deemed lower risk when compared to other forms of lending. Though you will still be credit checked, it is often the case that loans are approved despite a poor credit history, which is why these loans prove so popular throughout Caerphilly.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Princetown 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. Princetown 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.
Who should maintain the car?
When you agree to a loan, you also agree that you will continue to maintain the car while it is in your possession. This maintenance should include regular servicing, maintaining insurance at all times, and necessary MOT checks. Some normal wear and tear, along with additional mileage, is to be expected, but you should maintain your car to the same value it had when you took the loan. This means that if significant damage or mechanical failure should occur and reduce the value of your car, you should notify your lender right away.
Are Logbook Loans visible on a HPI check?
A HPI check should clearly show a loan present as a ’Bill of Sale Agreement’. A rule was introduced that requires all Caerphilly lenders to register any active loans against a vehicle with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find that there is an existing loan against your vehicle which was not visible on a HPI search then under the HPI guarantee you are entitled to a reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan can be arranged with three different repayment durations... 12, 18 or 36 months. Your interest is charged monthly, and there are no penalties for settling the loan early which means you can save money on the total amount payable.
