Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Wilburton logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How do Wilburton 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 documents will the provider need?
The process of enquiring for a loan is simple, but you’ll need to make sure that you have all the right documentation. You will need a photo ID as proof of identity, your V5 document for proof of ownership, a copy of your current insurance policy, a recent utility bill in your name to prove your Cambridgeshire address, a current MOT, and either a bank statement or recent payslips to show that you have the income required to successfully repay your loan.
Are Cambridgeshire V5 Logbook Loans a good idea?
If you’ve a bad credit history, and you’re unable to obtain a loan via the more conventional means, like a bank, you should consider enquiring about a loan against your car. Although they still require credit checks, Wilburton residents with bad credit history can apply and might still be eligible for a loan. As a matter of fact, your loan application is normally considered approved provided you’re eligible, and you meet the few loan requirements. You can actually get approved very quickly, and at times even get money on the same day.
Can I still get a V5 Loan even if i’m unemployed?
Yes, Cambridgeshire residents could still get a loan although you will still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments every month to avoid losing your vehicle. Responsible lending approaches mean the lender needs to be satisfied that you aren’t going to risk gong into arrears.

Does my poor credit score affect my Wilburton loan application?
A poor credit score normally means refusal for any other type of Cambridgeshire loan, however when looking at these type of loans you may find that it is easier to be accepted even with bad credit history. Using your car as security for the loan means the lender is facing less risk and so they are more likely to lend against your vehicle. You will still undergo a credit check, but the outcome will not always mean refusal. Apply online today to find out!
I can’t prove my current income... does that matter?
Responsible lending entails only lending money to Wilburton applicants who can prove that they can afford the monthly repayments. It’s a way of trying to avoid accounts entering into arrears and even the repossession of a vehicle. Wilburton v5 logbook loans are only offered to those who can prove that they can make the repayments, so if you have trouble doing so it’s best to get in touch to discuss the best option for your lending needs.
Am I responsible for car maintenance?
As part of your loan agreement, it will be your responsibility to maintain your car’s value for the entire term. Lenders do expect some wear and tear (as well as additional mileage) since you will keep possession and use of the car, but you should report any significant damage, mechanical failures, or events that depreciate your car’s value significantly. In the meantime, it is also your responsibility to carry insurance at all times, to have regular MOT checks performed, and to have the car serviced.
Will my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?
All loans such as Wilburton V5 loans should show up on a HPI search as a Bill of Sale Agreement. A ruling was introduced that requires Cambridgeshire lenders to register every loan with companies such as HPI. If for any reason you find there to be a loan against your vehicle which did not show up on a HPI search, then you will be entitled to up to £30,000 according to the HPI guarantee.
What periods of repayment are available?
In order to suit most repayment needs your loan can be repaid over 12,18 or even 36 months. As interest is charged monthly, there is no penalty for paying off your loan, so repaying your loan faster results in a reduction of the overall cost.
