How do Greater Manchester Logbook Loans work exactly?
The principal of borrowing against your car (or a V5 loan) in Greater Manchester is very straightforward... you use the V5 document of your car as security for a loan against it. Typically you can borrow up to 80% of the car’s value and have a range or repayment durations available. An added bonus of this type of loan is that Fallowfield applicants can continue to drive their vehicles throughout the loan period, an once the loan is repaid in full the V5 document is returned. V5 loans are particularly popular with those who have less than favourable credit scores.
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 Greater Manchester residency, along with payslips or bank statements that show your income.

Can the unemployed secure a Logbook Loan?
Fallowfield individuals who are unemployed and also have a bad credit score usually have fewer choices when it comes to securing a personal loan. This is because of the fact that during the loan application process in most of the conventional loan lenders, one has to be employed with proof of income, and also a credit record check has to be done. With loans secured against a vehicle, unemployed people in Greater Manchester might still be considered for the loan, however, as part of responsible lending, the logbook lender has to assess the loan applicant so as ensure that they are suitable to lend money to.
I have a poor credit score... can I get a loan?
Quite possibly yes! In fact Greater Manchester lenders could be more accepting of those with less than desirable credit scores as your car’s V5 document is retained as security making it a lower risk loan for the lender. It’s important to realise that all Fallowfield applicants are still credit checked, but may find this type of loan more accepting than others.
Do I qualify if I can’t prove my income?
To qualify for Fallowfield V5 loans, you need to prove to the loan lender that you can afford to make your loan repayments. Logbook lenders focus on your current ability to afford loan repayments instead of dwelling solely on a perfect credit history. If you don’t have a perfect credit score, you might still be eligible to borrow so long as you are in a position to prove that you’re able to repay your loan. That being said, it’s advisable to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.

Who should maintain the car during the loan?
Lenders ask you to provide proof of insurance at the time you enquire for a loan because they want to mitigate their risk in lending by making sure you’re covered in the event something should happen to your collateral while it is still in your possession. Along those same lines, lenders will expect that you have regular MOT checks and that you have your car serviced regularly throughout the loan period. This helps to maintain the car’s value, which is the lenders biggest interest. If for any reason your car’s value should depreciate significantly, you should immediately notify your lender of the circumstances.
Will a HPI check show a Loan?
Any loans taken out against the car are normally recorded on a database which is known as the HPI Index where anybody can check for the vehicle’s history prior to purchasing it. When you do a HPI check, you will get to know the vehicle’s true financial history. The HPI check report will also show you the vehicle’s history including; whether the logbook is legitimate, insurance write-off, previous number of owners, previous number plate changes, potential mileage discrepancies, and more.
What are the repayment terms for the loan?
Borrowers generally get the option of tailoring their repayment plans according to their budget and needs. The standard repayment terms starts from 12 months to 36 months with an option of 18 months if needed. The interest is usually charged on a monthly basis, but if you repay the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges.
