How do Greater Manchester Logbook Loans work then?
The premise of borrowing against your car is simple... use your car’s V5 title document as security to lend against the value of your car. In fact you can lend anything up to 80% of the car’s value up to a maximum of £50,000. The application process is simple, and this type of loan is popular among Irlams o' th' Height residents as they are often accessible to those with poor credit scores as the vehicle is used as security. Once your loan is repaid, you receive your V5 document back and carry on as normal.
What documents do I need to provide?
Enquiring about a loan is easy and only takes a few minutes of your time. You’ll need to provide some personal information along with a copy of your photo ID, your logbook (or V5 documents) most recent MOT, proof of car insurance, proof of Greater Manchester residency, and proof of income. These things will all help lenders verify your identity and ownership, and it will also help lenders decide what type of loan you can qualify for.
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 Greater Manchester logbook lenders are more willing to lend money where other lenders might pass, which is why they are so popular throughout Irlams o' th' Height. 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 unemployed Irlams o' th' Height 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. Greater Manchester 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 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 Irlams o' th' Height applicants are still credit checked, but may find this type of loan more accepting than others.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Irlams o' th' Height logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Greater Manchester 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.
Who is responsible for car maintenance?
Most logbook lenders will ask that you maintain your car so that the value remains the same (or close to the same) throughout the duration of the loan period. This maintenance includes regular servicing, MOT checks, and automobile insurance, among other things. You will need to notify your lender if anything reduces the value of your car significantly, including damage or mechanical problems. However, your lender will expect some additional mileage and the usual wear and tear throughout the loan term.
Do V5 Loans show up on HPI checks?
V5 loans should show up on any HPI checks, and are displayed as a Bill of Sale agreement. However, this isn’t always the case. In case you conduct the HPI check, and follow the purchasing guideline, then you’ll be protected by the HPI guarantee in case it turns out that there’s a V5 loan against the vehicle.
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.
