Logbook Lending FAQs
We receive a number of questions regarding Ashmansworth logbook loan applications, so for your convenience we have answered as many of the popular questions received below:
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Ashmansworth Logbook Loans work is that you use your car as security in order to receive a loan against the value of it. In order to receive the loan you need to own the car yourself (or have very little finance on it) then hand over the V5 document in exchange for an agreed amount of up to 80% of the car’s value. You can carry on driving your car throughout the loan period, and once repaid your V5 document is returned to you. They are particularly popular in Hampshire as they can often be available to residents with poor credit scores.
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 Hampshire 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.

Can unemployed persons secure a Logbook Loan?
To be eligible for Ashmansworth loans against cars, you need to own a vehicle that’s registered in your name (or very nearly own it on finance). A perfect credit history and full employment status are not always a strict requirement, however, you must be able to provide proof that you will be able to make the repayments on your Hampshire loan, without delays. It’s part of a responsible lending culture amongst lenders.
Can I Get a Loan With a Poor Credit Score?
Taking out a loan when you’ve bad credit score is tough for many Ashmansworth borrowers. Because of the poor credit score, major loan lenders like banks are less likely to approve your loan application. Hampshire lenders might be able to provide a more accessible option despite the bad credit. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, V5 lenders can be more tolerant to bad credit scores; as responsible Hampshire lenders, they will have to assess the loan applicant’s ability to repay the loan, and their vehicle’s value to ensure that the loan can be guaranteed.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Ashmansworth V5 logbook loans can be advantageous for borrowers with poor or little credit history. Being unemployed, self employed, having arrears, CCJs, or bankruptcies can make one a bad credit borrower, and the traditional Hampshire lending institutions will most probably refuse your loan application due to the high risk associated. With a loan against your car, you might still qualify even if you have poor credit so long as you can prove you’re able to make the repayments in a timely manner. Responsible lending is designed to help prevent the risk of you losing ownership of your car. Since different people have different circumstances, it’s advisable to to get in contact to discuss your particular situation.
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?
Hampshire 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.
How long do the repayment terms last?
Repayment terms start from 12 months to 36 months. 18 month repayment periods are also available. The larger the loan amount you borrow or apply for, the more flexible the loan repayment terms will be. If you are able to pay off the loan early, you will not incur any extra charges. As a matter of fact, it’s advisable to pay off the loan in advance since you will pay much less money in terms of monthly interest, in the long run.
