If you are looking for a mortgage or to remortgage, you may be worried that having an adverse credit history will prohibit you from doing so, although the bigger lenders in recent years have become less willing to lend to people who have a history of bad credit on their file. There are however a range of mortgages for poor credit applicants which might be suitable for your needs.
Getting a mortgage if you have had a poor credit history
While it is true mortgages for poor credit borrowers can be harder to come by from the mainstream high street lenders, it does not necessarily preclude you from being able to find finance. There are a range of specialist lenders who have specific mortgages for poor credit borrowers that you may wish to consider, some however may only be accessible via an independent mortgage broker.
Your credit score
Exactly what specific mortgages are available to you will depend on your credit score and the reasons behind it, for instance you may find there are more mortgages available to you if you have previously missed one or two mortgage payments, however if you have declared bankrupt in the past or had a property reposed you may be limited to mortgages from specialist lenders.
As lending to people with poor credit scores inherently poses a larger risk to the lender the severity of your credit history will affect the cost of your mortgage repayments. You may also need to put down a larger deposit than you would expect for a standard mortgage of the same size.
Applying for a mortgage with poor credit
