Aidan and Kayleigh were absolutely brilliant. They were very pro-active throughout and gave us confidence that they were identifying the most appropriate products on the market for our needs! We felt very reassured and are grateful for them helping the transaction to run as smoothly as possible.
I couldn’t praise Kayleigh and Luke highly enough.
From the very start Michael, who I initially spoke with was the extremely helpful and professional. I was struggling to find a lender due to my personal circumstances. Michael was very open and honest with me and actually managed to find a lender who would consider my circumstances. This is something other brokers were unable to do!
I started my mortgage journey thinking I could never get a mortgage, well if I did I would be a long time due to a few mistakes I made back when I was a student. I got speaking to Luke Grosse. After months of searching things couldn’t of gone smoother on his end, he got me a mortgage offer. Easy to talk to, straight forward, explained everything in detail while being patient. Couldn’t recommend this company and Luke in particular any higher as my experience with them was fantastic. Finally completed on my purchase today and now I am a home owner with my fiancé.
This being our first property purchase, we were very unfamiliar with the how things worked. With the support and help by these two fine ladies, we were able to steer in the right direction. We had constant communication throughout the process and communication was key in these purchase too. I definitely speak highly and recommend others the mortgage advisor as they were always willing to help and support us in any way possible.
What is a bad credit mortgage?
Traditional banks and building societies have an overly cautious approach when it comes to lending to people who have a less than perfect credit history, and that can make it very difficult when you need a mortgage. Thankfully, there are specialist lenders who can help you out with a bad credit mortgage when high street banks and building societies generally won’t remotely entertain the idea.
A bad credit mortgage is sometimes the only real option for people with a poor credit score or credit rating. The terms of any bad credit mortgage arrangement are likely to be less favourable than if you had a good credit rating, but if you have a good consistent income and/or a decent sized deposit, a competitive deal is still possible.

What are my chances of getting a mortgage with bad credit?
If you have a history of bad credit, then you will inevitably have run into problems securing a mortgage. The positive news for you is there are lenders out there who can help those looking to borrow money to buy a property, even when their credit rating is not great.
Finding a favourable mortgage deal is not impossible, but it will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your credit problems, how long ago your financial difficulties were, and how affordable the mortgage is likely to be to you.
Even if your credit history is really bad, there are some specialist lenders who may still lend to you. We can help introduce you to a broker who has access to some of the best bad credit mortgage deals to suit you, even if you are someone who had been turned away for a mortgage in the past.
Bad credit mortgage deals
Adverse credit can cover a wide range of different scenarios, from missed payments and pay day loan usage, to defaults, CCJs and debt management plans, right up to severe forms of adverse credit such as bankruptcy, repossessions and IVAs.
As a rule of thumb, the more severe and recent the adverse credit, the bigger deposit will be needed. At present, it is likely you would need a minimum of 20-25% as a deposit if you have adverse credit. The more deposit you can put down, the less risk you are to a lender.
By speaking to one of our specialist brokers, they can review your credit file and find the most suitable lender for you based on your requirements.
When would a bad credit mortgage be my only option?
Having a bad credit record can make things difficult when it comes to securing a mortgage, but we want to make sure that people are not prevented from ever owning a property. A bad credit mortgage can sometimes be the only option for people when they have experienced financial difficulties leading to County Court Judgements (CCJs), defaults, or missed payments.
Equally, those who have been declared bankrupt, are currently in an Individual voluntary arrangement (IVA) or debt management plan or have previously had a home repossessed or been declared bankrupt, will also face difficulties when trying to secure a mortgage.
A bad credit mortgage gives people who are, or have been in these situations, an opportunity to secure a mortgage when they have adverse credit and no high street lenders will generally go near them. Through specialist lenders, who are usually more flexible, allows people with bad credit to get a good mortgage deal for them in the circumstances.
What sort of bad credit mortgage deal am I likely to get?
Specialist lenders who provide mortgages to people in bad credit are more flexible compared to high street lenders, but they still want to ensure that the risk is balanced. Any bad credit mortgage deal you get will take into account the age, severity and cause of any credit issues, and consider the risk of them occurring again.
While the terms of any mortgage might be less favourable than standard mortgage (e.g higher interest rates the higher the considered risk), some lenders will include options such as interest rate cuts after a set period of time if borrowers have shown they can consistently keep up with payments.
Bad credit issues such as missed payments will be treated less harshly by a lender than say someone with a recent discharged bankruptcy or a repossession in the last few years. The older the adverse credit history, the more likely a borrower would be to get better mortgage terms.
