I defaulted 10 years ago, The defaulted account dropped off 4 years ago. There is no trace and my credit file is clean.

Question is do we go direct to the lender or broker? You two have been running up more debts even though your mortgage is only k. That suggests that you are spending too much for your income. If they give you a larger mortgage, you may well continue spending more and run up the credit cards again…. Also if you remortgage with a different lender now, you will still have to pay the get out fee to your current lender.
So, I suggest you give up on remortgaging at the moment and set about overpaying those credit cards by as much as possible before February.
Any that you clear, close the accounts. This will reduce your debts and show the lender that you can do this.

The underwriters came back with a yes! We have just completed all the paperwork and the new mortgage will kick in early next year when our 5year fixed finishes.

There is a link to a mortgage calculator in the above article — use that with the 3k level of debt and see what it says. Hi Sara, my partner and I are looking to purchase a house this summer.
He has a perfect credit score but due to my credit utilisation I think mine is with Experian and with ClearScore. We want to start looking at houses and thought an AIP would give us a good idea of what we can afford. Will be debt hinder us if we do this now? Hi, I have a history of late payments on a mortgage that is now fully piad up and closed. I applied with the Halifax who I held the mortgage with that fell into arrears. I have had other credit with them since, some paid in full and a credit card that we use for joint expenses.
My credit file has been immaculate for the last 3 years and I also have a car on finance which all payments are up to date. Do you think the application will fail at full application? They have given us an A2 credit rating on the AIP. No, but my wife wanted to go directly through the Halifax as she has used the advisor before and her current mortgage is with them and we both bank with them. I had caught up with the arrears for about 12 months before I sold my property and closed the mortgage.
Have just been rejected for new mortgage. Have default unpaid which is due to drop off In Dec Have sold my current home and have told my bank that I will pay default as soon as i receive the money. Me and my partner have affordability but my partner took out finance recently on new car in addition to a few late payments and then my default. Is there any lenders that will look sympathetically at me applying in my own right either by ensuring default is paid immediately given this is the only blemish on my record and I have affordability to make mortgage application on my own.
Obviously my credit score is poor due to default and not been borrowing. You need to talk to a good mortgage broker but there may not be any options for a mortgage at a reasonable rate. This may not be possible in 2 years time, then you are stuck with a very expensive mortgage. A better option may be to rent until January when the default will have vanished and the debt will have long been repaid so it will not be visible on your bank statements either. Thanks Sara. So say I decide to rent until the default drops off.
Is it necessary to repay it if it dissappears before I reapply? I am looking to borrow k with 30k deposit does that still mean a bad credit mortgage of I chose to go for it will still be crippling?
