Queen Adelaide V5 Logbook Loan FAQs
It’s only right that you have all the information you need before proceeding with your Queen Adelaide logbook loan application. Here are a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive:
How do Cambridgeshire V5 Logbook Loans work?
Borrowing against the value of your car, or V5 loans are a form of secured lending where Queen Adelaide borrowers temporarily transfer ownership of their car via the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount. You need to own the car yourself (although a small amount of finance is allowed) then you simply hand over the V5 document to the lender. You can borrow up to 80% of the car’s current value, and repay the loan in instalments up to 36 months (early settlement is not penalised). V5 loans are popular with Queen Adelaide residents as they are frequently more accessible to those with lower credit scores that might have been refused elsewhere.
What should I supply on application?
Before you can proceed to enquire about a loan, you’ll first need to make sure you have all the proper documentation. You’ll need your logbook, or V5, which should be in your name, along with a current MOT and proof of insurance for the vehicle you want to use as security. You should bring a government-issued photo ID card, a recent utility bill as proof of Cambridgeshire residency, and some form of income validation that proves your ability to repay your obligation.
Are V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
Absolutely, especially if you have had a loan refused elsewhere due to a poor credit history/score. As your car is used as security you may find that Cambridgeshire logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout Queen Adelaide. So long as you meet the loan criteria then you could be lending up to 80% of your car’s value very quickly indeed.
Can I get a Logbook Loan if I am unemployed?
If you have tried to apply for Cambridgeshire personal loans at the mainstream sources like banks, and you have been refused you should consider applying with a logbook lender. Even if you are unemployed, you will still be considered. Queen Adelaide Logbook lenders are interested in your current ability to repay the loan, which means even if you have a bad credit history and you are not employed, you might still qualify. You simply need to prove that you can afford the repayments so as to avoid extra charges, delays, and the possible repossession of your car.
What about Cambridgeshire residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Cambridgeshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Queen Adelaide billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Cambridgeshire V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Queen Adelaide applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
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.
Do Logbook Loans show up on HPI checks?
Yes, a loan taken out against the vehicle should on a HPI check as a bill of sale agreement. A HPI check is a vehicle history check service which is provided by HPI company in the UK. A HPI check normally produces a report which provides information about the history of the vehicle, mainly if it’s written off, has outstanding finances, is clocked or stolen, among other things. In case a loan taken against the car doesn’t show up on the HPI Check, and you happen to buy the car, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee. You will be offered a financial reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan repayments can be arranged over 12, 18 or even 36 months. There are no penalties if you wish to settle the account sooner, in fact it is encouraged as interest is charged monthly so you can save yourself money by paying your loan off sooner.
