What is a Credit Repair Mortgage?
These are mortgages designed to help people that have a poor credit history to either buy a new home or re-mortgage their current home.
These Credit Repair mortgages, sometimes called almost prime, near prime or bad credit mortgages, are the same as standard mortgages, but they have been designed for people that would fail the usual lenders credit checks.
They have been specifically designed for people who have either previously defaulted on credit or missed monthly bill payments or mortgage payments. They may have had to go onto a debt management plan (DMP), do an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) or possibly go bankrupt.
They are generally offered at a higher interest rate than their standard mortgage counterpart. This is due to mortgage lenders deeming people with poor credit ratings as being higher-risk lenders.
For this reason, it is essential that you get professional advice from one of our expert brokers at JF Financial Associates who have access to a wide range of bad credit and credit repair mortgage lenders, and will therefore be able to find you the best possible rates and charges.
We will then work with you on an ongoing basis to help rehabilitate you and your credit profile until we eventually get you back onto high street rates. We will then work with you to make sure we keep you on them!
