How it Works

We are a FCA Regulated Logbook Loan lender.   We are a direct lender and not a broker

The new Logbook Loan key facts

A Logbook Loan is a perfect way for a borrower to withdraw the equity cash from their vehicle via a quick cash loan.  Using the car as security helps the borrower to get a better interest rate compared to unsecured forms of credit.

It allows the borrower to retain full personal use of their vehicle for the full term of the loan.  We use a Hire Purchase Agreement regulated by the Consumer Credit Act 1974 to secure the loan against the car.   This is compared to other Logbook Lenders securing the original Logbook Loan against the car with an out-of-date Bill of Sale.

We will never ask the borrower to surrender the V5C /  Logbook or spare key to secure the loan.

The trade value of the car will determine the maximum value of the loan, therefore the higher the car value the more we will lend., subject to the borrower’s suitability and affordability,   We must ensure the borrower’s monthly repayments are affordable and manageable in line with their current monthly financial commitments.

How much can I borrow?

We will lend up to 65% of the car value with loans from £500 – £150,000.   The loan will be subject to the borrower completing an affordability assessment and credit check. 

Loan rates are from 6%-10.5% per month and we provide flexible loan terms from 12 – 60 months.

How does it worK?

We will complete every application online safely and securely without the need for a home visit.  We will even complete the car inspection via ‘WhatsApp’ and we aim to complete the loan the same day and transfer the cash into the borrower’s account.

Settle early, penalty free

You can be settled early at any time during the term penalty free.  The borrower can request a settlement figure at any time and it will be valid for 28 days.  The interest will stop accruing when the settlement figure is paid.

Overpayments allowed

You can make unlimited number of capital overpayments.  On receipt of a capital overpayment, we will reduce the original loan principal by this amount, so you pay less interest.

Who is responsible for the car?

The borrower tax, comprehensively ensure and maintain the vehicle of the duration of the loan.  The borrower is not allowed to the sell the vehicle without our approval.
