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.

Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.

A loan against your car will show as a Bill of Sale Agreement. If for any reason it doesn’t show on a HPI check then the HPI guarantee will offer reimbursement of up to £30,000.
