With the rising cost of living, peoples budgets tightening and wage rises becoming smaller (or in some cases none existent) thousands of people have found some of their credit falling into arrears. Even for those with no significant issues you can suddenly find that you apparently have a `low credit score` which is reducing your access to mortgages.

We have mortgage lenders who will lend at scores of below 240. History tells us that no one is immune from possibly going through a dip in their finances, which can sometimes lead to the occasional missed loan, credit card or mortgage payments. This can perhaps result in a defaulted card or loan and in more unfortunate cases County Court Judgements (c.c.j.`s) can arise. Having this type of poor credit does not necessarily mean you cannot get a mortgage.
The most important thing is that you want to try and move forward as soon as you can and are committed to paying back what you borrow via your new mortgage. Fortunately for you, we have been able to set many customers back on the right track and so by choosing First Choice Finance to access either low credit score, no prior credit or poor credit mortgages, remortgages or loans, you may already be taking the first steps necessary to obtain the money you require. Incurring poor credit has happened to a multitude of people and will continue to do so in the future, often through no fault of their own. Oddly enough you can even get a low credit score through having a lack of credit history, despite not having any adverse credit at all. If you find your self in these scenarios then all may not be lost.
Low Credit Mortgage Scenarios.
Have you found that you are being knocked back by the high street stores when you go for a store card or interest free credit, have banks or other lenders declined you when you were looking to raise finance? This will usually be because you have missed some credit or loan payments in the last 12 months, have mortgage arrears, or have incurred defaults / county court judgments. However it can also be due to not being on the voters roll where you live or not having any credit in place at the moment of any sort for the lenders to see how you conduct an account. So key is keep on top of your credit commitments, only borrow what you can afford and use credit wisely - oh yes and get on the voters roll.
How Do I Qualify For Better Rate Mortgage Plans.
All the different mortgage providers have different criteria they use to determine the cost of the mortgage. Some of the main areas that help categorise where you will fit are listed below;
Credit History - If you have a good record of paying back your existing debts then this may reduce the cost of your mortgage. That being said there are lenders who we have access to that specialise in helping people who have been unfortunate enough to have some missed credit payments. It is also worth noting that some of our very best plans ignore older defaults or arrears from over a year ago, so you may not actually be seen as having any adverse credit at all.
Loan To Value - If you have a large amount of equity in your property you will often receive a cheaper mortgage rate. Though the steps in the rates, even as you go up to 90%LTV Mortgage levels do not increase dramatically and there are other factors which may help reduce the gap further.
Employment Details - If you are employed and receive a regular salary then this aids towards affordability and may improve the mortgage your are offered. Also if you are married or cohabiting then you may have more borrowing options available if you apply jointly. Fortunately due to our longevity in the mortgage market we have established access to plenty of lenders who value self employed customers and have excellent rates available for them too but do not always deal directly with the public.

Low Rate Remortgages - If you are looking for a cheap remortgage then first choice finance will help you through the remortgaging process from start to finish. People remortgage with us for a variety of reasons, sometimes it is just to look for a better rate to get their payments down, or it is to raise some funds for some overdue home improvements, alternatively it can be to get on top of other credit commitments which are starting to pressurise you - by opting for a debt consolidation remortgage. As with our home mover or purchase mortgage customer journey all quotes will be provided for free and you will not be under any obligation to proceed.
This will usually mean there is an issue with your credit history, but that fact alone is not very helpful to you. Well, we can break this down for you. First of all, let us explain where they are getting their information from. When you go to a lender looking to borrow some money they will often perform a credit check on you, this shows them a file which contains your current and previous credit items in your name and provides them with information with regards to your payment and credit history. It is here, where the problem nearly always lies, mortgage lenders have criteria that you must pass in order to qualify for finance and often use a scoring system unique to them which could be letting you down.
So what is it that can affect your credit file or credit score?
It can be a number of things but here are some of the main culprits:
Missed loan or mortgage payments
Defaults on a credit or debit card
Entering into a debt management plan
Not having any history of using & paying credit
County Court Judgements (c.c.j`s) within 5 years
Being in Arrears on a credit card, store card or personal loan
Not being on the voters roll at your home
Having multiple addresses over a few years
Being in an Individual Voluntary Arrangement
Entering into Bankruptcy or having been bankrupt before
One thing is for sure lots of people have some bad credit issues, so you are certainly not alone. Some of these reasons are probably a little surprising, for example not being on the voters role at your residential address or having no credit at all can all affect your credit access quite badly and result in you needing a lender who will still do a poor credit mortgage. We have managed to find people mortgages and loans for poor credit and by addressing their credit problems they are able to take the first step to rectifying it. We have many specialist lenders on our panel that have surprisingly good deals for people looking for a poor credit mortgage.

Poor Credit Mortgages Explained
Poor credit mortgages are simply mortgage plans that are accessible to people with bad credit or a poor credit history, or those with a low credit score. Having a poor credit score can suggest to lenders and high street banks that you have a history of credit problems. As we mentioned earlier one of the main factors for a poor credit score is missed or even late payments. Having previous missed payments suggests to a lender that you are a higher risk to lend money to. This means that they need to make slight changes to their mortgage products to accommodate this risk and provide them with extra security if they choose to lend in the poor credit mortgage market. This could be, higher arrangement fees or higher interest rates for example. That is why poor credit mortgages tend to be more expensive than mortgages that are available to those with a good credit history, the term often used to describe this is `rate for risk`, the more risk, the higher the rate. That being said poor credit mortgage plans are available from many providers and so the competition between them helps keep the rates pretty close to main stream mortgage and remortgage plans
Not only are the products slightly different for poor credit mortgages but often the criteria to secure one can be slightly more stringent. The lenders may want extra evidence to ensure that the loan is affordable and will be repaid. We have been finding poor credit mortgages for our clients for over 25 years, if you think you might be looking to arrange one but aren`t quite sure where to start then give us a call or enquire on line. You can talk through your particular case without obligation and we will be able to let you know which mortgages may be available for your circumstances and we will provide you with a free quotation.
After working in the mortgage market for around a quarter of a century we have come to realise that having poor credit and requiring some form of debt consolidation, often cross paths.

Many of our existing clients are in the same boat, trying to straighten up their finances and use a combination of both products, that is a `debt consolidation poor credit remortgage` to provide a debt solution. It will even go so far as to help you mend your credit file and score over time as you continue to make the repayments your history of repayments will look stronger . We can provide you with the options necessary to not only give your credit file a lasting makeover but to clear the debt causing those problems and prevent it doing anymore damage in the future.

Other Options Available To You
Unfortunately poor credit mortgages aren`t available to everyone. Economic pressures have taken their toll on the banks and lenders, as well as the UK consumer and have resulted in many tightening their belts with regards to lending criteria and qualifying for a mortgage, especially for people with poor credit. It is true that many lenders are starting to creep back into the market as consumer confidence grows and as a result products for poor credit mortgages will multiply.
In the meantime though please remember that having poor credit does not mean all doors to finance are closed to you. Here at First Choice we strive to provide our customers with plenty of options and routes to borrow that money while the lenders play catch up. We want to make sure that you are informed of all of your options to help ensure you make the right decision. Being refused a poor credit mortgage is no exception, if there are other ways to raise the finance and we have access to them, we will aim to find them for you. For example, our advisers could look to provide you with an any purpose homeowner loan, or a refinancing homeowner loan. Whether you just want to explore your options or you are ready to get help with erasing that poor credit for good, we are ready to help.
Poor Credit Mortgage
If you`ve been unlucky enough to have had a bit of history of not paying bills on time, you may need to look into a poor credit mortgage when you`re looking to buy a home or renew your existing home loan.
It is all too easy to end up in an adverse credit situation.
Getting into arrears with credit card, mortgage or loan repayments is just one way you can harm your credit rating, having too many credit checks within a short period of time can have a similar effect, especially if there is no credit line started after them.
Then in a quirk of financial services, not having any credit can also be just as negative an impact as having some adverse credit, because you are seen to have no track record.
However, with First Choice Finance, because we start by manually looking at your specific scenario and have long standing relationships with many lenders from our 25 years of experience, you can still be presented with a wide selection of poor credit mortgages even though you may have felt at a dead end.
We employ our own UK based processing team and our own advisers get you the mortgage you want, so we do the leg work and you just decide, without obligation, if you want to go ahead.
If you`re happy, we`ll get your home loan sorted as quickly as possible, so you get your mortgage and if you keep up the repayments you could even begin to repair your credit file.
