Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Ridgeway Moor logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How Logbook Loans work
If you own a car and live in Derbyshire, 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 ID and documents do I need?
Providing logbook lenders with proof of Derbyshire residency, income, car ownership, and identity is vital when you enquire for a loan. It only takes a few minutes, and you can do all of this with a handful of documents. Your photo ID, logbook (or V5 document), current MOT, proof of insurance, a utility bill, and a bank statement or copies of payslips will suffice. Bear in mind that some lenders may ask for additional information for verification purposes, too.
Are Derbyshire 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, Ridgeway Moor 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 unemployed Ridgeway Moor 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. Derbyshire 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 Ridgeway Moor 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, Derbyshire residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Derbyshire 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.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Ridgeway Moor logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Derbyshire V5 lenders will not offer you a loan unless they are certain that repayments can be made. This is to avoid you going in to arrears and risking losing your car. If you can’t prove your income then get in touch today to discuss your options and see if you’re eligible for a V5 document loan.
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 a Logbook Loan show on a HPI check?
Derbyshire 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 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.
