Answers To Your Questions
Logbook loans are generally a very straightforward type of loan, but we’re sure you have a number of questions so have compiled answers to some of the common questions we receive from Crux Easton applicants.
How do Hampshire 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 Crux Easton 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 exactly will I need to apply?
You will need your logbook, current MOT, driver’s license or other photo ID, proof of income (bank statements or payslips), proof of insurance, and proof of Hampshire residency (such as a utility bill) to successfully enquire about a loan. Although all lenders have different guidelines when it comes to approvals and some may ask you to provide additional documents, these are universal for the prevention of theft and the reduction of risk.
What makes Crux Easton Logbook Loans a good idea?
There are numerous benefits to taking out a loan against your vehicle, but perhaps the main benefit that attracts many Hampshire applicants is that people with less than perfect credit scores can still be eligible to borrow money as their vehicle is used as security. So if you can afford the repayments and need to borrow some quick money then Crux Easton v5 loans can be a great idea. Get in touch to find out more.
I’m currently unemployed, can I get a Logbook Loan?
One of the key requirements to taking out Hampshire loans against your vehicle logbook is that you can prove to the provider that you can afford to make the monthly repayments. This is part of a responsible lending approach that helps ensure you do not default on your payments and risk your vehicle not being returned. Therefore if you are in Crux Easton and unemployed you still need to be able to prove that you can afford the repayments to qualify for the loan.
What about Hampshire residents with poor credit scores?
If you have a poor credit score and you need to borrow, a loan secured against your vehicle might well be a solution. The logbook loan procedure is usually very straightforward, and you can often get the money on the same day. Although you will still have to undergo a credit check, due to the security of your car as collateral you may find it easier to be accepted. When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Hampshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Crux Easton billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
Is it a problem if I can’t prove my income level?
In order to qualify for Crux Easton logbook loans you need to be able to prove that you can afford the monthly repayments. Responsible lending means that Hampshire 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 my HPI check show any Logbook Loans?
All loans such as Crux Easton V5 loans should show up on a HPI search as a Bill of Sale Agreement. A ruling was introduced that requires Hampshire 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.
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.
