How do Cambridgeshire 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 Commercial End 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.
What ID and documents do I need?
Providing logbook lenders with proof of Cambridgeshire residency, income, car ownership, and identity is vital when you enquire for a loan. It only takes a few minutes, and you can do all of this with a handful of documents. Your photo ID, logbook (or V5 document), current MOT, proof of insurance, a utility bill, and a bank statement or copies of payslips will suffice. Bear in mind that some lenders may ask for additional information for verification purposes, too.
Why might a Logbook Loan be a good idea?
If you live in Commercial End, 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.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Commercial End loans against cars, you need to own a vehicle that’s registered in your name (or very nearly own it on finance). A perfect credit history and full employment status are not always a strict requirement, however, you must be able to provide proof that you will be able to make the repayments on your Cambridgeshire loan, without delays. It’s part of a responsible lending culture amongst lenders.
Does poor credit history affect Cambridgeshire applicants?
Actually a V5 loan is one of the more tolerant loans when it comes to bad credit, and Cambridgeshire 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.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Commercial End logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Cambridgeshire V5 lenders will not offer you a loan unless they are certain that repayments can be made. This is to avoid you going in to arrears and risking losing your car. If you can’t prove your income then get in touch today to discuss your options and see if you’re eligible for a V5 document loan.
Who is responsible for general car maintenance?
Although the loan is secured with your car, you get to keep your car throughout the duration of the loan as long as you make the payments on time as agreed. Because the car stays in your possession, it also stays under your car. You will be required to have regular MOT checks, to have the car serviced, and to maintain insurance on the car at all times. If you do not, or if anything should affect the car’s value (other than normal mileage and wear and tear), then you should contact your lender.
Do V5 Loans show up on HPI checks?
V5 loans should show up on any HPI checks, and are displayed as a Bill of Sale agreement. However, this isn’t always the case. In case you conduct the HPI check, and follow the purchasing guideline, then you’ll be protected by the HPI guarantee in case it turns out that there’s a V5 loan against the vehicle.
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.
