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 Buttermere applicants.
How do Wiltshire Logbook Loans work exactly?
The principal of borrowing against your car (or a V5 loan) in Wiltshire is very straightforward... you use the V5 document of your car as security for a loan against it. Typically you can borrow up to 80% of the car’s value and have a range or repayment durations available. An added bonus of this type of loan is that Buttermere applicants can continue to drive their vehicles throughout the loan period, an once the loan is repaid in full the V5 document is returned. V5 loans are particularly popular with those who have less than favourable credit scores.
When applying, what do I need to provide?
When it comes to enquiring about a loan, lenders often have different requirements, but the basics are the same across the board. You should have access to your photo ID, car insurance policy, current MOT, logbook, bank statements or payslips, and a current utility bill that is in your name. These things provide the lender with proof of your identity, ownership, Wiltshire residency, and income – and they’ll need it to get you approved.
Are Wiltshire Logbook Loans really a good idea?
If you’re looking for some quick money, and have been refused a loan elsewhere then a V5 loan can be a good idea to release the funds that you need. Wiltshire applicants with less than ideal credit scores often find that their loans requests are accepted and they can release the value in their cars. As your car is used as security against any repayments, then you’re more likely to be accepted than with other loan types, making Buttermere V5 Loans a great idea for many.

When taking out the loan against your vehicle, your Wiltshire loan lender will need you to hand over the vehicle’s V5 document or logbook, alongside some other requirements like Buttermere billing address, proof of identification, MOT certificate and proof of income.
I have no proof of income, can I still borrow?
If you own a car that’s registered in your name you might still be able to get a logbook loan, however you need to prove that you’ll be able to afford to make the repayments.

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 HPI check show a Loan?
Any loans taken out against the car are normally recorded on a database which is known as the HPI Index where anybody can check for the vehicle’s history prior to purchasing it. When you do a HPI check, you will get to know the vehicle’s true financial history. The HPI check report will also show you the vehicle’s history including; whether the logbook is legitimate, insurance write-off, previous number of owners, previous number plate changes, potential mileage discrepancies, and more.
What are the repayment durations?
You can choose to repay your loan in either 12, 18 or 36 month instalments. What’s more there is no penalty for settling your loan early so you could save money on monthly interest payments by repaying your loan sooner.
