V5 loans are particularly popular with those who have less than favourable credit scores.

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.
Will a Logbook Loan show up on a HPI check?
An HPI Check is a car check which is provided by HPI ltd. which scrutinises the history of motorised vehicles that are registered in UK including vans, motorbikes and cars. The HPI check report alerts you to any kind of worrying information that’s held against the car by insurance or finance companies, the police, the DVLA, and such other industry bodies. 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.
What is the repayment period?
Lending against your car can be quite flexible when it comes to the repayment period. The period or length of repayment available is 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. However, if you have got the means, you are allowed to pay off the loan early without incurring any penalties. The interest is charged on a monthly basis, which means that paying off the loan early results in reduction in the overall amount of money you repay.
