V5 Car Loan FAQs
There are a number of questions we receive regarding Sawtry logbook loans,so for your convenience we have compiled a list of answers to the more frequently asked questions we receive on a daily basis.
How do Sawtry Logbook Loans work?
The way Cambridgeshire loans against cars work is you use your car as security for getting a loan. The only thing you need to hand over is the logbook (also known as V5 document) of your vehicle. The logbook is held by the lender as collateral, and you get to keep and use your vehicle throughout the agreement. The document is then returned to you when you finish repaying the loan. Loans are available throughout Cambridgeshire and are increasing in popularity with those with bad credit.
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.
What makes Sawtry Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Cambridgeshire applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security. So if you can afford the repayments and need to borrow some quick money then Sawtry v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
What about Sawtry V5 Loans and unemployment?
It can be difficult for the unemployed to take out any type of loan. As part of a responsible lending approach Cambridgeshire logbook lenders need to be satisfied that you can make the payments every month so you minimise any risk of losing ownership of your car. As all situations are different, it is advised that you get in touch via the form on this page to discuss the lending options available to you.
Does credit score affect loan applications?
If you have a poor credit score then you might have already been refused a loan elsewhere. Though disheartening it shouldn’t put you off applying for Sawtry V5 loans, as using your car as security for the loan often means a more relaxed acceptance level. Your credit history will still be checked, but as long as you live in Cambridgeshire and own the car outright (or with minimal finance left) then you have a good chance of being able to borrow against it’s value.
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 Sawtry 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.
Is it my responsibility to maintain the car?
When you get a loan, your lender provides you with funding based on the value of your car. Your car becomes collateral that the lender can possess to recoup its losses in the event that you default on loan. Because of this, it is your responsibility to continuously carry insurance on that car, to have it serviced, and to have regular MOT checks. All of these things help to maintain your car’s value, which is important to the lender. If something should have a significant impact on your car’s value, you should always report this to your lender as soon as possible.
Will a Logbook Loan show on a HPI check?
Cambridgeshire lenders are required to register all loans against a car with companies such as HPI, so they should all show up (normally as a ’Bill of Sale’ agreement) on a search. If for any reason you discover a loan on your new car that didn’t show up on a HPI check then their guarantee will reimburse you up to £30,000.
What are the repayment durations?
You can choose to repay your loan in either 12, 18 or 36 month instalments. What’s more there is no penalty for settling your loan early so you could save money on monthly interest payments by repaying your loan sooner.
