Can I get a mortgage
with a poor credit rating?

it is possible to secure a mortgage even if your credit score is less than ideal. However, this may entail certain trade-offs. Due to the perceived higher risk to lenders, individuals with poor credit ratings may encounter higher interest rates and the requirement of a larger down payment.

Fortunately, there are mortgage options tailored for those with lower credit ratings, commonly known as bad credit mortgages, adverse credit mortgages, or sub-prime mortgages. These specialised products are designed to provide opportunities for homebuyers with less favourable credit histories.

How to improve your credit score

Lenders place a premium on financial stability and your ability to consistently meet mortgage payments in the long term. Here are some effective methods to enhance your prospects. For further insights, we recommend reviewing our article on common pitfalls to avoid during the mortgage application process.

How does a ‘bad credit’ mortgage work?

These mortgages operate similarly to standard mortgages, offering both fixed and variable interest rate options. However, for those with less-than-perfect credit, the selection of available mortgages may be somewhat limited, often necessitating a larger upfront deposit and resulting in slightly higher interest rates.

Given the relative scarcity of mortgages for individuals with poor credit, it’s advisable to seek the assistance of an experienced mortgage broker to identify the best-suited options. The application process for such mortgages can be more intricate than for conventional ones, as lenders typically require stronger assurances regarding your ability to manage the mortgage payments consistently.

Providing a comprehensive summary of your financial history, including an honest account of past events contributing to your credit score, can prove invaluable in this context. Transparency can be a powerful asset when pursuing a mortgage despite a less-than-ideal credit rating.
