FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How we work?
By making an enquiry we will contact you to discuss your needs and outline if we can be of assistance. We will then request a copy of your credit file for a qualified adviser to review. After a full review of your credit profile the adviser will discuss this with you, provide advice and discuss possible quotations.

If you wish us to proceed and get a ‘Decision in Principle’ we can do so. Once we have a decision from the lender we will discuss and email you a formal quotation and outline our process going forward.
What sort of bad credit do you accept?
We have lenders that will accept clients who have had County Court Judgements (CCJ’s), Defaults, Missed payments, Debt Management Plans (DMP), Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVA) and discharged bankruptcy. The general rule is that any bad credit needs to be registered over a year ago.
Do I need a deposit / equity?
Yes. You will need a minimum of a 10% deposit however, this is does depend on the level of bad credit that you have, so for example, if you have had CCJ’s/mortgage arrears in the last 2 years you may need to have 15%+ deposit. If you are buying a property through a shared ownership scheme we have lenders that do not require you to have a deposit. If you are buying a property through the Help to Buy scheme we have lenders that can help you providing you have a 5% deposit to put down.
How long does a bad credit mortgage take to arrange?
Once a Decision in Principle (DIP) has been done the typical arrangement times from mortgage application to offer is 1 month. Specialist bad credit mortgages do take more time when compared to standard high street mortgages, due to the extra due diligence that is required on these cases.
I have a low credit score – does that matter?
No. We have lenders some of whom are high street Building Societies that will lend to you if you simply have a low credit score, due to not being on the voters roll or not having much active credit. If you have a low credit score as a result of bad credit (CCJ’s/defaults/missed payments etc) we certainly have specialist lenders that can help.
I have been declined by other brokers – can you help?
The key to this question is why you were declined. We provide an advised service, so if we cannot help you now, we will explain why and provide advice as to what you need to do to be able to get a mortgage in the future.

Shared Ownership Mortgages


What is a shared ownership mortgage?

A shared ownership mortgage is a Government scheme that helps first time buyers or previous home owners who are unable to buy currently. Shared ownership mortgages work by buying a portion of the property and paying a rent on the rest of the property. A buyer, for example, may initially opt to purchase 25% of the property with the remaining 75% is owned by the housing association or council.

To qualify for the shared ownership mortgage scheme your joint family income will need to be under £60,000 p/a and you will need to be either a first time buyer or in a position where you are unable to purchase a new home outright.

There exists a process called staircasing that allows the purchase of further shares of your house until such stage as you have purchased the entire property. The agreed sale price is via the housing association and will be dependent upon market conditions. That is, if your property has increased in value since your initial ownership then you will need to pay more, and if the property has devalued then you will pay proportionally less for your increased percentage of the property.

Advantages:

  • Manage to get on the property ladder.
  • It maybe cheaper buying part of the property and paying rent on the remainder when compared to renting privately.
  • You can staircase and purchase more of the property share over time.
  • More security knowing that a landlord will not ask you to leave.

Disadvantages:

  • If you wish to make significant changes to the property such as new kitchens or extensions you will need to get permission.
  • If you was to sell the property you will have to seek advice from the housing association before putting it on the open market.
  • If you want to staircase and purchase more of the property, the property will need to be revalued and the cost of the share may have increased.

Many of the high street lenders offer shared ownership mortgages and if you are declined by the high street lenders due to low credit score or bad credit we have lenders that can still help you purchase your property.


How can bad credit shared ownership mortgages help?

If you have had bad credit registered in the past such as missed payments, defaults or County Court Judgements (CCJ’s) we have lenders that would still consider providing you with a mortgage. Typically this ‘bad credit’ will need to have been registered more than 12 months ago.
