Securing a Mortgage Despite Credit Challenges

Jun 29, 2024

Understanding Your Credit Situation

When you have credit challenges, such as defaults, payment arrears or County Court judgements, securing a mortgage can seem like a daunting task. But it's important to remember that having a low credit score doesn't mean you can't buy a home. Understanding your credit situation is the first step. You need to know your credit score and the factors affecting it.

Credit scores range from 0 to 999. Scores below 620 are often considered poor. Factors like late payments, high debt levels, and recent credit enquiries can lower your score. By knowing these details, you can take steps to improve your credit.

Another step is to avoid new credit enquiries. Each new enquiry can lower your score slightly. Focus on paying down existing debts instead of taking on new ones. If you have errors on your credit report, dispute them. Correcting mistakes can improve your score quickly.

Seek Professional Help

Sometimes, you may need professional help to improve your credit. Credit counselling services can offer advice and help you create a plan to manage your debt. They can also negotiate with creditors on your behalf. Make sure to choose a reputable service.
