What is a Logbook Loan?
A Logbook Loan is a loan secured against your vehicle. It allows you to unlock the value in your vehicle without having to sell it. The lender holds on to your V5 logbook for the duration of the loan, but you get to keep on driving it as normal. Once you have repaid your loan, you will receive your V5 logbook back.
Please note: Ramsdens do not issue the loan to you but acts as a credit broker for Logbook Money Ltd. Ramsdens will not charge you anything but may receive a commission from Logbook Money. Logbook Money is a trading style of Logbook Money Ltd.
How much can you borrow?

The amount you are eligible for will be calculated based on the value of your vehicle and how much you can afford to pay on a weekly or monthly basis.
