Bad credit

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us just how much the global economy can be affected. If you are experiencing finance issues or have experienced these in the past, we can help you with the mortgage process. Our lenders use credit reference agencies such as Experian, Equifax and Transunion to help decide whether your mortgage will be accepted. Why not sign up to a credit report and see what they can see too?

Things to always check on your credit file –

  • Make sure that you have correctly disclosed your address history, a lot of reference agencies rely on you to input your data correctly. Check for linked addresses and see if there is anything you have missed.
  • As debts like defaults can be bought by third party collection agencies, they sometimes aren’t updated correctly. Check for any errors on your report so that you’re putting yourself in the best position to get a mortgage.

Our advisors consider a number of factors and carry out research when assessing customers with potential credit issues. If you have any further questions, our team would be happy to help.

If you are concerned about your credit you can download a credit report from Experian which will detail all of your credit over the last 6 years and any negative impacts on your credit score. This will be required by your mortgage advisor so they can assess your credit to look at your options for a mortgage;
