How exactly do Rhondda Cynon Taf Logbook Loans work?
A loan using your V5 document is a loan that’s secured on your car, so the lender owns your car until you repay the loan. When taking out a loan of this type, you’ll be asked by the lender to hand over the car’s V5 registration document or logbook. You can keep using your car as you repay the loan. You won’t get the logbook back until you have cleared the debt. If you default on the loan payments, your car can be seized by the lender.
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 Rhondda Cynon Taf residency, along with payslips or bank statements that show your income.
Why might a Logbook Loan be a good idea?
If you live in Trealaw, have bad credit history, have been refused a loan elsewhere or simply need some fast money to spend on whatever you like then getting a loan against your V5 document can be a good idea. Using your car as security makes this type of loan more accessible to Rhondda Cynon Taf residents with poor credit scores which is why they are so popular nowadays. So long as you can afford the repayments then they could be the answer to your lending needs.
Can I qualify for Rhondda Cynon Taf car logbook loans if I am unemployed?
If you live in Rhondda Cynon Taf, are unemployed and are looking for a way to secure a personal loan, then you might be eligible to borrow against your car. As long as you own a car that’s registered in your name then you could qualify. However, it’s important to note that all Trealaw applicants have different situations, so it’s advisable to get in touch with the logbook lender. Also, as part of responsible lending, the loan applicant has to be able to prove that they can afford to make the loan repayments to avoid extra charges, late repayments and possible repossession of their vehicle.
I’ve got a poor credit score... does that matter?
If you’ve got a bad credit profile and you are looking for Trealaw loans, you may be able to borrow by using your V5 document as security. Such loans work on the idea that if you have a car, you can use it as collateral to obtain a loan. Because of this, Rhondda Cynon Taf residents with bad credit score may still be eligible to secure a loan with V5 lenders, as compared to the more conventional Rhondda Cynon Taf loan lenders. Moreover, the loan application process is simple, the necessary requirements are straightforward, and you can often get access to your money on the same day.
What happens if I can’t prove my current income?
Rhondda Cynon Taf V5 lenders need to see proof that you can afford the monthly payments so you don’t risk going into arrears or even risk losing your vehicle. Being responsible lenders means only lending to Trealaw applicants that have the means to prove that they could afford to pay it back. If you think you might have trouble proving your income, then please get in touch to discuss the lending options that might be available to you.
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 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 are the repayment terms?
The length of repayment available for car v5 loans includes; 12 months, 18 months and 36 months. These repayment terms offer you adequate time so that you can make budget friendly repayments every month. The interest is charged on a monthly basis and you will not incur extra charges by paying off the loan early. In fact, it’s better to repay in advance, since by doing so, you will end up repaying much less overall in terms of monthly loan interest.
