Can I Get A Mortgage If I Have Bad Credit?

We are frequently asked whether we can arrange mortgages for clients with adverse credit. There is no doubt that a clean credit score will enable you to choose from a wider range of mortgage products, however, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that we have access to specialist lenders who can help even in the most challenging scenarios. 

It is important to consider that different lenders have different criteria for lending money – some lenders may see you more positively than others. So there’s no hard and fast rule of what’s considered bad credit.

For example, we work with lenders who will not credit score you and others who’ll accept small communication or utility defaults. We also have lenders who will accept defaults when registered over 36 months and lenders who might accept multiple secured and unsecured arrears, defaults, and CCJ’s.

If you have concerns regarding your credit or require advice and want to purchase or remortgage a property, we can help. Speak to our senior broker, Danny O’Keeffe on 0208 364 3444 or click the request a call back button below to book a time slot.

The cladding debacle rumbles on. MPs voted to block a House of Lords amendment to the Fire Safety Bill on 28 April.

We’ll keep you posted with new development on this important matter, which has caused concern to many of our clients.
