A few years ago I landed in some financial difficulty which resulted in my credit rating going from Good to Very Poor. I have been on my own Debt Management Plan for 2 and a half years now, without missing payments.

My problem is that I am hoping to buy a house now with my boyfriend, however I think my credit rating will stop us from doing this! We can certainly afford the mortgage and oustanding debts with our joint income, but I'm worried they will look at my credit rating only rather than the full story.

Does anyone know of a good reputable mortgage lender who will look at the facts rather than make a judgment based on credit score only?

Many Thanks

Joanne

the answer is yes, although generally not with the main high street lenders. You will generally end up paying a slightly higher interest rate as i have had to do.

I have over £70k in defaults and have just had two mortgage offers at near prime levels from brokers advertising in Exchange and Tart. I am not in a debt management plan and am not paying anyone anything.

Hi Paying .....

 

Can I ask what type of tie in period is on the mortgage offers i.e. if you repay within the first year what level fo penalty do you have to pay ?

 

Cheers

Can anyone send me the details or maybe post them. My gf and i have just been offered a lot less than we can afford due to our "low" credit score.

 

Thanks
