Bad Credit FAQ

Is it possible to obtain a mortgage with bad credit?

Yes. We have been specialists in this market for some time.

Is all adverse credit accepted?

We will have a look into all cases and assess them on an individual basis.

How do I find out whether I have adverse credit?

Very easily – if you log on to www.creditexpert.co.uk you can get a free 30 day trial with Experian, one of the major credit search houses within the UK. With the information on your credit file we can usually get a decision within an hour.

Why would I have bad credit rating?

There are many things that can potentially affect your credit rating. Some examples are:

  • Missed credit card, loan or mortgage payments
  • Being in a debt repayment arrangement such as an IVA, or if you have been declared bankrupt
  • County Court Judgements/Defaults registered against you
  • If you have taken out a pay day loan
If I have adverse credit registered against me will high street lenders still accept my application?

Every case is assessed individually. ams:  have direct communication with all the major UK underwriters. This means that we can discuss each case on its own merit before submitting the application for approval.

What do I do if normal high street lenders won’t accept me?

We use lenders who are specialists in the adverse credit market.

How soon are you likely to get me a decision?

We aim to get you a decision in principle with an hour once we have all of your information to hand.

How much deposit is likely to be required?

Between 10-15{f3e6733233b70b8da8509d0af294c4ca7fb8b7488135760b99cf9baca8bf684d} – although this does depend on the results of your credit file. The lenders see you as a higher risk if there is a lot of adverse credit on your file and may therefore require a higher deposit.
