Because you are able to maintain possession of the car throughout the loan duration, it is also your responsibility to maintain it. Maintenance includes continuous insurance coverage, regular servicing, and MOT checks as required. Although your lender is aware that some additional mileage and wear and tear is possible, anything above and beyond normal depreciation should be reported to your lender immediately.

If you do a HPI check and a loan taken against the vehicle doesn’t show up, and you buy the vehicle, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee which provides you with a financial 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.
