Your Questions Answered
Though applying for your Little Eversden logbook loan is a straightforward procedure, we’re sure that you have a number of questions regarding the process so have compiled a series of answers below to the more common queries.
How exactly do Cambridgeshire Logbook Loans work?
A loan using your V5 document is a loan that’s secured on your car, so the lender owns your car until you repay the loan. When taking out a loan of this type, you’ll be asked by the lender to hand over the car’s V5 registration document or logbook. You can keep using your car as you repay the loan. You won’t get the logbook back until you have cleared the debt. If you default on the loan payments, your car can be seized by the lender.
What exactly will I need to apply?
You will need your logbook, current MOT, driver’s license or other photo ID, proof of income (bank statements or payslips), proof of insurance, and proof of Cambridgeshire residency (such as a utility bill) to successfully enquire about a loan. Although all lenders have different guidelines when it comes to approvals and some may ask you to provide additional documents, these are universal for the prevention of theft and the reduction of risk.
Are Cambridgeshire Logbook Loans really a good idea?
If you’re looking for some quick money, and have been refused a loan elsewhere then a V5 loan can be a good idea to release the funds that you need. Cambridgeshire applicants with less than ideal credit scores often find that their loans requests are accepted and they can release the value in their cars. As your car is used as security against any repayments, then you’re more likely to be accepted than with other loan types, making Little Eversden V5 Loans a great idea for many.
Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Little Eversden 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 Little Eversden. 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 if I can’t prove my income?
Those who are self employed or have little/poor credit history in Cambridgeshire can benefit from the V5 loans; they simply need to prove that they are able to make the repayments. As part of responsible lending, it’s important for Little Eversden V5 loan applicants to prove that they have the ability to make timely repayments so as to avoid losing possession of their car. Since different people have different situations, it is important to get in contact to discuss your particular needs.
Am I responsible for car maintenance?
As part of your loan agreement, it will be your responsibility to maintain your car’s value for the entire term. Lenders do expect some wear and tear (as well as additional mileage) since you will keep possession and use of the car, but you should report any significant damage, mechanical failures, or events that depreciate your car’s value significantly. In the meantime, it is also your responsibility to carry insurance at all times, to have regular MOT checks performed, and to have the car serviced.
Do HPI checks show Logbook Loans on them?
All HPI checks should show loans against the vehicle on them as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement as Cambridgeshire lenders are required to register them with companies such as HPI. If you have carried out a HPI check and later find that there is a loan attached to your new vehicle then you are covered by a HPI guarantee which will reimburse you up to a maximum of £30,000.
How long do the repayment terms last?
Repayment terms start from 12 months to 36 months. 18 month repayment periods are also available. The larger the loan amount you borrow or apply for, the more flexible the loan repayment terms will be. If you are able to pay off the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges. As a matter of fact, it’s advisable to pay off the loan in advance since you will pay much less money in terms of monthly interest, in the long run.
