How to get a Mortgage with Adverse Credit

The general consensus for understanding if you can obtain a mortgage with “adverse credit” is by applying this simple method.

Alex Kerr – First Time Buyer Specialist

Maybe you are wondering how to get a mortgage with adverse credit ?

If you have had a maximum of four defaults within the last 24 months, and none within the last 6 months, then you will be able to obtain a mortgage.

Deposit: You will need a minimum of a 10% deposit.

DMPs: (Debt Management Plan) – As long as they have been running satisfactorily for at least 12 months then we are good to go.

There are one or two lenders that will look at more adverse credit, but we try and stay away from this option as the rates are much higher.

At Mortgage Chain we are Mortgage Brokers for First Time Buyers and helping our clients with adverse credit is all part of our specialist service.

If you have had more than four defaults within the last 24 months, work out when they will be over 24 months old.
