Mortgage with CCJ 2021
You may receive a County Court Judgment if someone takes court action against you,saying you owe them money, and you don’t respond.
If you receive a Judgment this usually means that the Court has concluded that you owe the other party the money.
Unless you pay the agreed amount within a month then the Judgment could stay on record for up to six years. This will have an adverse effect on your ability to secure a mortgage.
Typically, lenders will not approve a mortgage if the applicant has a negative credit rating or a County Court Judgment.
At Fair Mortgages, we specialise in arranging financial solutions for borrowers with a County Court Judgment that is hindering their ability to get a mortgage.
Unlike traditional lenders who will take a formulaic approach to a borrower’s application, private lenders look at each application individually and focus on whether the applicant can afford the mortgage repayments.

Mortgages from Private Lenders
With a mortgage from a private lender, you will be able to borrow a set amount of finance and make monthly repayments over an agreed period of time.
The major difference between a private lender mortgage and a traditional mortgage is the size of the deposit. To secure a mortgage with a private lender you will be expected to provide a deposit of at least 25% of the property value.
Before a private lender grants a mortgage, they will usually require:
- Proof of income: A number of pay slips will be requested
- Bank statements: You will need to provide a certain amount of bank statements to prove you can afford the monthly repayments.
- Three years' accounts: If you are self-employed, private lenders will request at least three years’ worth of accounts.
