Castle Camps V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Castle Camps logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
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 Castle Camps residents can borrow depends on just how much their car is worth; some Cambridgeshire 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.
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 Cambridgeshire 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.
Why might a Logbook Loan be a good idea?
If you live in Castle Camps, have bad credit history, have been refused a loan elsewhere or simply need some fast money to spend on whatever you like then getting a loan against your V5 document can be a good idea. Using your car as security makes this type of loan more accessible to Cambridgeshire residents with poor credit scores which is why they are so popular nowadays. So long as you can afford the repayments then they could be the answer to your lending needs.
What about Castle Camps V5 Loans and unemployment?
It can be difficult for the unemployed to take out any type of loan. As part of a responsible lending approach Cambridgeshire logbook lenders need to be satisfied that you can make the payments every month so you minimise any risk of losing ownership of your car. As all situations are different, it is advised that you get in touch via the form on this page to discuss the lending options available to you.
Does my poor credit score matter?
Even if you have a poor credit score, you may still be eligible for a loan as long as you have a car which you can use as collateral. Even though you will still have to undergo a credit check, your chances of securing a V5 loan could be good. To qualify, you also need to be a registered citizen, be of sound mind, be of the legal age, and own a car that’s legally registered in your name.
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Castle Camps 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. Castle Camps 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 Cambridgeshire 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.
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.
