FAQs - Marton V5 Car Loans
In order to ensure you are as informed as possible when enquiring about your Marton logbook loan we have listed some answers to FAQs received below. If you have any more please get in touch using the form.
So how does a Logbook Loan work?
A loan against your car, or V5 loan is a very straightforward way to lend money, especially for North Yorkshire residents who have had more traditional loan applications refused. Quite simply, you use your car’s V5 document as security to lend money against the value of your car. Anything up to 80% of the current market value can be borrowed, and repayments can be spread over 12, 18 or 36 months. What’s more, you can continue to drive your vehicle throughout the loan period, and upon completion your V5 document is returned.
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 North Yorkshire residency, along with payslips or bank statements that show your income.
Are Marton Logbook Loans a good idea for me?
If your circumstances mean that you have been refused a loan elsewhere then applying for this type of loan could help you lend the money you need. By using your car as security, V5 loans are more accessible to North Yorkshire residents who have less-than-perfect credit scores, or simply need to release some quick money from the value of their car. If you own your car and can afford the repayments then a V5 loan can be a good idea.
Unemployed but want a Logbook Loan... is this possible?
Marton residents that find themselves unemployed but still want to take out a loan gainst there vehicle have to meet certain criteria in order to be successful.

Does my poor credit score matter?
Even if you have a poor credit score, you may still be eligible for a loan as long as you have a car which you can use as collateral. Even though you will still have to undergo a credit check, your chances of securing a V5 loan could be good. To qualify, you also need to be a registered citizen, be of sound mind, be of the legal age, and own a car that’s legally registered in your name.
I can’t prove my income, is that a problem?
Marton 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 North Yorkshire 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.
Who is responsible for general car maintenance?
Although the loan is secured with your car, you get to keep your car throughout the duration of the loan as long as you make the payments on time as agreed. Because the car stays in your possession, it also stays under your car. You will be required to have regular MOT checks, to have the car serviced, and to maintain insurance on the car at all times. If you do not, or if anything should affect the car’s value (other than normal mileage and wear and tear), then you should contact your lender.
Will a Logbook Loan show up on a HPI check?
An HPI Check is a car check which is provided by HPI ltd. which scrutinises the history of motorised vehicles that are registered in UK including vans, motorbikes and cars. The HPI check report alerts you to any kind of worrying information that’s held against the car by insurance or finance companies, the police, the DVLA, and such other industry bodies. A loan against your car will show as a Bill of Sale Agreement. If for any reason it doesn’t show on a HPI check then the HPI guarantee will offer reimbursement of up to £30,000.
How long do I have to repay?
Your loan can be arranged with three different repayment durations... 12, 18 or 36 months. Your interest is charged monthly, and there are no penalties for settling the loan early which means you can save money on the total amount payable.
