How do Great Abington Logbook Loans work?
The way Cambridgeshire loans against cars work is you use your car as security for getting a loan. The only thing you need to hand over is the logbook (also known as V5 document) of your vehicle. The logbook is held by the lender as collateral, and you get to keep and use your vehicle throughout the agreement. The document is then returned to you when you finish repaying the loan. Loans are available throughout Cambridgeshire and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
What documents do I need to apply?
When you enquire about a loan, lenders do their best to not only prevent fraud, but also to reduce risk. For this reason, you will need several different documents. Your government-issued ID, a copy of your logbook, proof of insurance, a utility bill for proof of Cambridgeshire residency, a current MOT, and proof of income are all requirements when you enquire. Make sure you have the most recent versions of these for the best chances of being approved.
Are Great Abington Logbook Loans a good idea for me?
If your circumstances mean that you have been refused a loan elsewhere then applying for this type of loan could help you lend the money you need. By using your car as security, V5 loans are more accessible to Cambridgeshire residents who have less-than-perfect credit scores, or simply need to release some quick money from the value of their car. If you own your car and can afford the repayments then a V5 loan can be a good idea.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Great Abington 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.
My credit score is poor, can I still get a loan?
Even if you have a bad credit rating you may still find you qualify for a V5 loan in Great Abington. Your vehicle is used as security so the loan is deemed lower risk when compared to other forms of lending. Though you will still be credit checked, it is often the case that loans are approved despite a poor credit history, which is why these loans prove so popular throughout Cambridgeshire.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Cambridgeshire V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Great Abington applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
During the loan, who maintains the car?
A v5 loan is a type of secured loan that is provided to you based on the value of your car. 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.
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.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan repayments can be arranged over 12, 18 or even 36 months. There are no penalties if you wish to settle the account sooner, in fact it is encouraged as interest is charged monthly so you can save yourself money by paying your loan off sooner.
