So how does a Logbook Loan work?
A loan against your car, or V5 loan is a very straightforward way to lend money, especially for Cambridgeshire residents who have had more traditional loan applications refused. Quite simply, you use your car’s V5 document as security to lend money against the value of your car. Anything up to 80% of the current market value can be borrowed, and repayments can be spread over 12, 18 or 36 months. What’s more, you can continue to drive your vehicle throughout the loan period, and upon completion your V5 document is returned.
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.
What makes Ely Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Cambridgeshire applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security. So if you can afford the repayments and need to borrow some quick money then Ely v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
Can unemployed Ely residents still qualify for a Logbook Loan?
If you are unemployed and you have had a previous loan application declined, a loan against your vehicle could well be an option. Cambridgeshire V5 lenders may be more tolerant to people with poor credit score and to those who are unemployed. To obtain a loan, you simply need to own a car and provide proof of your ability to repay the loan. The situations of different loan applicants will always vary, therefore it’s best to get in touch directly with the lender when enquiring about a loan.
What about Cambridgeshire residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Cambridgeshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Ely billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Ely V5 logbook loans can be advantageous for borrowers with poor or little credit history. Being unemployed, self employed, having arrears, CCJs, or bankruptcies can make one a bad credit borrower, and the traditional Cambridgeshire lending institutions will most probably refuse your loan application due to the high risk associated. With a loan against your car, you might still qualify even if you have poor credit so long as you can prove you’re able to make the repayments in a timely manner. Responsible lending is designed to help prevent the risk of you losing ownership of your car. Since different people have different circumstances, it’s advisable to to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.
Car maintenance - whose responsibility?
During the entire period of your loan, it is your responsibility to maintain the car. The lender does not and will not take possession of the car unless you default on your payments. As part of your agreement, you should ensure that your car is regularly serviced, that MOT checks are completed, and that you maintain proper insurance throughout the entire period of your loan. If any of these things do not occur for any reason, or if the value of your car decreases substantially due to damage or a mechanical failure, you should notify your lender.
Will a Logbook Loan show on a HPI check?
Cambridgeshire lenders are required to register all loans against a car with companies such as HPI, so they should all show up (normally as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement) on a search. If for any reason you discover a loan on your new car that didn’t show up on a HPI check then their guarantee will reimburse you up to £30,000.
What are the repayment durations?
You can choose to repay your loan in either 12, 18 or 36 month instalments. What’s more there is no penalty for settling your loan early so you could save money on monthly interest payments by repaying your loan sooner.
