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 will I need to apply?
You’ll need to provide several forms of documentation before you can successfully enquire about a loan. Of course, the most important of these are your valid photo identification and your V5 documents, or logbook, as these will prove that you are the rightful owner of the car you want to use as security. You should also bring a current MOT, proof of insurance, and a copy of your most recent utility bill (in your name) to prove your Cambridgeshire residency, along with payslips or bank statements that show your income.
Are Cambridgeshire V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?

If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Oakington loans, you may be able to borrow by using your V5 document as security. Such loans work on the idea that if you have a car, you can use it as collateral to obtain a loan.

Moreover, the loan application process is simple, the necessary requirements are straightforward, and you can often get access to your money on the same day.
What if I can’t prove my income?

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.
Do Logbook Loans show on a HPI check?
Yes. It is a requirement for all Cambridgeshire lenders to register each and every loan via companies such as HPI. In the unlikely event that you discover your new car to have a loan attached to it that didn’t show up on a HPI check then you will be eligible for up to £30,000 reimbursement in accordance with the HPI guarantee.
How long are the loan repayments?
Logbook lending repayment periods can take up to 36 months, which means that you get to spread the repayment for a long period of time. You can decide to make your repayments based on the schedule you’re comfortable with. You can choose the 12 months repayment period, the 18 months repayment period or the 36 months repayment period. Also, if you choose to repay the loan early, you will not be penalised.
