Answers To Your Questions
Logbook loans are generally a very straightforward type of loan, but we’re sure you have a number of questions so have compiled answers to some of the common questions we receive from Great Gransden applicants.
How Logbook Loans work
If you own a car and live in Cambridgeshire, you could be eligible to borrow against your vehicle. Your car has value, and the v5 document can let you obtain cash against that value. During the set duration of the procured loan, the car basically acts as the security for the loan given; this means that the lender gets to keep your car’s logbook until you complete repaying the loan. They technically own the car for the entire duration of your loan. This protects the lender should any payments be missed. The lender has the legal right to auction the car to recoup his/her costs.
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.
Why opt for Great Gransden Logbook Loans?
Unlike other types of loan, the requirements needed for borrowing against your vehicle are minimal. You simply need to meet a few requirements; that is, you must be of the legal age, and own a car (or have very little finance remaining) which you can offer for collateral. If you meet this criteria and live in Cambridgeshire, you are free to apply for this type of loan. So long as you are the car owner, you may be able to obtain the loan even if you’ve a history of default. The amount of money you can borrow normally depends on the value of the car you’re using for security. Also, if you’ve finance on the car already, some Great Gransden loan lenders might still lend you some money, so long as the car is worth more than what’s owed on it.
Can unemployed Great Gransden 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.
Does a poor credit score mean no loan?
If you have been refused a loan elsewhere in Cambridgeshire, a loan secured against your car might be the solution because of the easy application process and simple requirements. Although all Great Gransden loan applicants are still credit checked, these loans can often be a solution for those with a poor credit score, but own a car which they can use as collateral. As responsible lenders, credit checks have to be undertaken so as to establish whether the loan is affordable. However, people with poor credit scores may still find themselves eligible to borrow.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Great Gransden 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.
Is it my responsibility to maintain the car?
When you get a loan, your lender provides you with funding based on the value of your car. Your car becomes collateral that the lender can possess to recoup its losses in the event that you default on loan. Because of this, it is your responsibility to continuously carry insurance on that car, to have it serviced, and to have regular MOT checks. All of these things help to maintain your car’s value, which is important to the lender. If something should have a significant impact on your car’s value, you should always report this to your lender as soon as possible.
Will a V5 Loan show up on a HPI check?
Logbook loans should show up on a HPI check. They show up as a Bill of Sale agreement, and it’s a requirement for Cambridgeshire lending companies to register them with companies like HPI. Nowadays, it’s very important to perform a thorough check on the car’s history. 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 are the repayment terms for the loan?
Borrowers generally get the option of tailoring their repayment plans according to their budget and needs. The standard repayment terms starts from 12 months to 36 months with an option of 18 months if needed. The interest is usually charged on a monthly basis, but if you repay the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges.
