If you aren’t sure whether you need to consider an adverse-credit mortgage, we’ve outlined some of the things that can cause you to fail the credit check below. If you experienced any of these, you can benefit from our expertise.
A CCJ is a court order that is made in the UK and can be registered against you, or a company, if payments on any credit commitment aren’t made. A CCJ within the previous 6 years can affect the chances of having a mortgage application approved.
Our team of advisers successfully negotiate mortgages for clients with CCJs on a daily basis. Make sure you speak to us before incurring any costs associated with a property purchase. We aim to secure your mortgage funds first, then help repair your credit file and credit worthiness.
A defaulted credit account normally occurs if you miss three or more payments on any credit commitment.
Our team are very experienced in managing cases affected by defaults. Ensure you speak to us before incurring any costs associated with a property purchase, as our aim is to help secure the mortgage funds and start to repair your credit file.
An IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) is an agreement with the supplier of a credit agreement. They are implemented if there have been late or missed payments, and you are struggling to meet the repayment terms.
We can provide access to specialist lenders that would be able to help. We would ensure that the case is structured correctly, giving you the best chance possible of being accepted.
Bankruptcy is the last resort if someone is unable to repay their debt. It is a form of individual insolvency with serious consequences, including putting a mortgage application at risk.
We will work to put you in the best position possible to have a mortgage application accepted. Our team work with specialist lenders who can help, and have a very high success rate.
For those with some event on their credit file, no matter how small, high-street lenders may refuse their mortgage application. This is even true with just one or two late or missed payments.
If you’ve ever had any late or missed payments, it isn’t guaranteed to affect your mortgage. However, it’s always worth seeking the advice of our team just to be safe.
