Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Old Weston logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How does a V5 Logbook Loan work precisely?
It is a type of secured loan which provides a convenient and simple way of obtaining money for Old Weston residents, and all credit rating is considered. The amount you’re entitled to borrow is normally determined by your vehicle’s value, and the amount you are able to repay, instead of your employment status or credit history. This means that Cambridgeshire residents, even if they’re self employed, or suffer from poor credit rating may still qualify for the loan; provided they can afford to repay it. You basically borrow the cash on an understanding that in case you do not pay the money back in the stipulated time, the lender can re-possess your vehicle.
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 Old Weston 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 Old Weston 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.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Old Weston 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. Because of this, Cambridgeshire residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Cambridgeshire loan lenders. 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.
Does it matter if I can’t prove my income?
You need to be able to prove to your logbook lender that you can afford the monthly payments. Part of being a responsible lender is that they will only lend money to Old Weston applicants who can afford to make the monthly repayments. Old Weston v5 loans are only offered if the lender can be sure that the repayments are affordable, which helps avoid accounts going into arrears and the possibility of car repossession. Get in touch today to see what your options are if you’re finding it hard to prove your income level.
What about car maintenance during the loan?
Although a logbook lender does reserve the right to take possession of your car if you default on your payments, if you are current, you are still the owner of the car. As such, all maintenance remains your responsibility, and this includes MOT checks, insurance, and regular servicing. Your lender will expect normal wear and tear along with additional mileage on the car, but if anything should significantly reduce the car’s value, you will be expected to report that change to the lender as soon as possible.
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.
What is the repayment duration?
Your loan can be arranged with either a 12, 18 or 36 month duration and since there are no penalties for early repayment you can save money on interest payments by settling the account early.
