I’ve got bad credit registered – Can you help?
We are mortgage brokers that specialise in helping clients that have either a low credit score &/or bad credit registered. The types of bad credit that we can help clients with include:
County Court Judgements.
Low Credit Score.
Satisfied IVA / Bankruptcy.
Clients often feel that they may not have any mortgage options available, however we have a panel of lenders who offer their products through brokers which are designed to provide bad credit mortgages to clients that have been declined by high street lenders.
Does the bad credit registered have to be old, or can it be more recent?
The older the bad credit the more options you will have available, the less deposit will be needed and generally the rate will be lower, when compared to bad credit that has been registered more recently.
When considering a bad credit mortgage the first step is to obtain a copy of your credit report from a credit agency such as Experian or Equifax. With this in hand you should speak to one of our experienced and friendly advisers based in Southend who can talk you through your options.
What sort of deposit would I need?
This depends upon many factors such as what type of bad credit has been registered (i.e. missed payments or did the account go into default or was a county court judgement registered against you?), When did this event take place, the size of the debt, was the debt a mobile phone contract, credit card or a loan and have you since been able to resolve the issue?
Generally the more recent the poor credit issue the bigger a deposit would be needed. So for example if you had a £800 default registered recently you will probably need a deposit of 30/40% whereas if the default was 4 years ago you many only need a 15% deposit.
Every case is reviewed on its own merits, so you should discuss this with one of our Southend based bad credit mortgage specialists.
