Frequently Asked Questions
It’s only natural to have a number of questions regarding V5 loans, so we have compiled a series of answers to the more frequently asked questions. Please get in touch to discuss any element of Abercynon logbook loans further.
How do they work?
Quite simply the way Abercynon 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 Rhondda Cynon Taf as they can often be available to residents with poor credit scores.
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 Rhondda Cynon Taf 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.

Is it my responsibility to maintain the car?
When you get a loan, your lender provides you with funding based on the value of your car. Your car becomes collateral that the lender can possess to recoup its losses in the event that you default on loan. Because of this, it is your responsibility to continuously carry insurance on that car, to have it serviced, and to have regular MOT checks. All of these things help to maintain your car’s value, which is important to the lender. If something should have a significant impact on your car’s value, you should always report this to your lender as soon as possible.
Will a V5 Loan show up on a HPI check?
Logbook loans should show up on a HPI check. They show up as a Bill of Sale agreement, and it’s a requirement for Rhondda Cynon Taf lending companies to register them with companies like HPI. Nowadays, it’s very important to perform a thorough check on the car’s history. If you do a HPI check and a loan taken against the vehicle doesn’t show up, and you buy the vehicle, then you’re protected by the HPI guarantee which provides you with a financial reimbursement of 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.
