Can I get a Buy to Let mortgage with bad credit?

YES! It can be more difficult to get a Buy to Let mortgage with bad credit, and you may have a more limited choice of lenders and mortgage deals. Many lenders are scared away by adverse credit, especially high street lenders. Credit is lowered with every missed payment or inability to meet financial dues.

Despite this, poor credit history doesn’t mean you can’t be approved for a Buy to Let mortgage, and there are many specialist lenders out there who specialise in bad credit mortgages. Your credit file is not the only thing to consider. The specialist lenders we can get you in contact with will take other things about your application into account, such as the projected rental income of your property, your current ability to make the mortgage payments, and things that you’ve done to try and fix your credit history.

Speak to a specialist mortgage advisor to find out more about how you can apply for a Buy to Let mortgage, find adverse credit lenders and invest in property, even when you have bad credit!

Can I get a Buy to Let mortgage with a CCJ?

CCJ stands for County Court Judgements and it occurs when someone takes legal action against you because you owe them money. Though this is a pitch-black mark on your credit file, a CCJ doesn’t necessarily disqualify you from getting approved for a Buy to Let mortgage with bad credit. Many other factors are taken into account when a lender reviews your application, including the number, severity, and recency of the bad credit incidents. Above all, with the right advice and support, CCJs and other forms of bad credit don’t have to put a stop to all your property investment dreams.Talk to our expert bad credit mortgage advisors today and let’s get your future plans back on track!

What deposit do I need to get a Buy to Let mortgage with bad credit?

Most lenders will require a substantial deposit on an interest-only Buy to Let mortgage, even if your credit report is good. If you have bad credit, the deposit required may increase even further, and the deals available will reduce. Typically, a 25% deposit is required, creating a 75% Loan to Value (LTV). There are lenders out there who will stretch to an 80% LTV, though these are usually reserved for those who have previously rented out properties. Regardless, a Buy to Let mortgage with bad credit is possible, so speak to one of our mortgage brokers today.

If I have bad credit will the interest rates on my Buy to Let mortgage be expensive?

Inevitably, the deals available to you will decrease if you have an adverse credit history. This can mean you end up with a deal that has higher-than-average rates. The deals available will vary depending on your credit file, and how long ago your adverse credit began – so the effect could be minimal. With the right team on your side, it’s still possible to get a good deal, even if rates or deposits may be higher. Working with an expert team of bad credit mortgage advisors can ensure you get the most suitable, most competitive mortgage product for your credit file and other circumstances – call us today to start the search!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply for a limited company Buy to Let mortgage if I have bad credit?

You can! The amount of lenders willing to offer you a Buy to Let mortgage may decrease, but mortgage approval is still possible for your limited company. There are many specialist lenders out there who market to people looking for a mortgage with bad credit, and a suitable deal is definitely within reach. It’s important to talk through the type and severity of your bad credit with an experienced mortgage advisor who will be able to identify the best way forwards for you and your company.

Mortgage Arrears may make it harder for you to get the buy-to-let mortgage you want through mainstream lenders, but there are things that can be done to remedy this. Whether it be finding ways to reverse your adverse credit, showing the success of your debt management plans, or our mortgage brokers finding specialist mortgage lenders that are not easily reached by the public – we will do right by you.

If mortgage arrears are responsible for your low credit score, you need good representation to ensure you get your mortgage dream. You can rely on When The Bank Says No.

The fact of the matter is, mortgages with bad credit are possible because your financial conduct is not the only thing considered in mortgage lending. Specialist lenders consider mainly based on the potential rental income of your buy-to-let property. If specialist lenders are convinced they will be able to see good rental income from your buy-to-let property, then you still have a solid chance of getting your buy-to-let mortgage so long as they believe they won’t be receiving missed payments.

Not to mention, consistent rental income will go toward improving your credit file. If our mortgage advisors find that your potential rental income is a strength, you can be sure that we will seek to highlight this when looking for specialist lenders to support your buy-to-let mortgage.

Your credit file suffers through missed payments that are scheduled. Paying your bills on time for a long time builds up and improves your credit file. Having a debt management plan in place to combat setbacks on your credit history is a great way to start improving your credit.

Another thing that is often missed when talking about credit history is old credit cards. Your credit history and its length can affect how good or bad it is. You should keep old credit cards open to boost your credit file. Taking out small loans that you can pay back without any risk of missed payments are another great way to boost your credit, and amend your credit history.

Although you can still get a mortgage with bad credit, it is undeniable that better credit means better deals. It’s best to start improving your credit rating early if you want good credit and better mortgage deals.
