Bad Credit & First Time Buyers

In general, people’s credit scores get better as they get older. This is down to a number of factors including higher wages and a more responsible attitude toward debt. As first time buyers tend to be younger – the average first time buyer in the UK is in their early 30s – it’s possible that if you are considering buying your first home you may not yet have your financial health exactly where you’d like it. If you have had problems with debt and credit in the past, for example if you’ve defaulted on a loan or entered into an IVA, you might find that fewer mortgage lenders are willing to consider your first time buyer mortgage application.

The problem with bad credit

When you are unlucky enough to have an issue with credit, such as being unable to keep up with loan repayments or falling behind with your electricity bill, these issues are recorded by a credit reference agency. The 3 credit reference agencies in the UK are Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, and they receive information from many different organisations including utility companies, banks and loan companies. Although the credit reference agencies get their information from slightly different sources, the overall picture – that is whether you have a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ credit score – is pretty consistent.

When a mortgage lender considers your application they will use the information held by these agencies as part of the assessment they make regarding whether you are likely to be able to keep up with your mortgage repayments. In short, if you have had problems in the past which have led to you having a poor credit history, then they may decline your application as they believe that this demonstrates that you will also have problems in the future. In short it can be difficult to get a bad credit mortgage for a first time buyer.

Can a first time buyer get a mortgage with bad credit?

It may be a little more complicated, but a first time buyer with bad credit can certainly find a mortgage; and finding a mortgage for bad credit first time buyers is also made easier when you use the services of a specialist adverse credit mortgage broker like Simply Adverse.

How likely you are to find a bad credit mortgage for your first house purchase can depend on how severe your adverse credit history is and when you had problems with bad credit. For example, missing a couple of credit card payments a few years ago is going to be of far less concern to a lender than persistent, recent problems managing your finances.

Do lenders only look at my credit history?

When you apply for a mortgage, lenders will take into account a number of things about your personal financial situation, and that of your partner if you’re making a joint application for a first time buyer mortgage.

  • Affordability – as well as your credit rating, lenders will look at how much money you have left at the end of every month, once you’ve paid all your essential outgoings.

If you have a lot of money left at the end of each month, this tells the lender that you will find it easier to meet your mortgage repayments than a first time buyer with lots of outgoings.

As soon as you are even considering buying your first home, take a look at how much you spend and cut back on anything that isn’t essential. If you do this early you will be able to demonstrate to a lender that you can afford to service a mortgage. It’s no good promising that you’ll cut back in the future.

  • Deposits – When you’re thinking about buying your first home you’ll need to start thinking about how much you need to borrow, that is what size mortgage you want. Obviously, the larger your deposit the less you’ll need to borrow from the mortgage company. As you are borrowing less the risk to the mortgage lender is lower, and they will have more confidence that you will be able to pay back your first time buyer mortgage loan.

If you can, take the time to increase the size of the deposit you have available, which will make it more likely that you will find the best first time buyer with bad credit mortgage. It will also put more time between your application and any negative entries on your credit report. Again improving your chances of finding a great mortgage deal.

Don’t make things worse

With so many things to consider when you are looking for a bad credit mortgage for applicants with bad credit, it’s natural to get overwhelmed. However, even with lots going on it’s important that you remain on top of your finances even after you’ve decided to buy a house. As well as making sure you keep up with any credit commitments you already have, it’s important that you don’t do anything that could jeopardise your application. In particular avoid taking out any short term loans – sometimes known as payday loans – and make sure you don’t go overdrawn without authorisation.
