Bad credit mortgages for first time buyers

FTB? Bad Credit? Need a Mortgage?

If you have a bad credit history and are a first time buyer seeking a mortgage you need to get specialist help.

First time buyers with a bad credit history should note that high street lenders will not consider your case. Approaching a high street lender and allowing them to run a credit check on your record may even make your situation worse.

Use an independent mortgage broker

In certain cases there may be options available to you via specialist mortgage brokers.

If you do have bad credit and are seeking a mortgage make sure:

  • You use an independent mortgage broker that is a specialist with bad credit cases for first time buyers.
  • You make your mortgage broker fully aware of all of your credit history and the problems with it. Be prepared to pay a fee to cover your mortgage brokers’ time.
