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

We help customers do just that. Our customer Mr D was able to:

Get on the property ladder, and move out of rented Secure a fixed rate of 2.99% Find a 95% mortgage

Our client had been in an IVA, which he’d managed to clear. Since the IVA, he’d managed to save money for a deposit towards a house purchase. In the meantime he was renting, and paying £425 a month to his landlord.

We were delighted to be able to help him take that important step onto the property ladder, and get back on track. His deposit was only small, but we found a great deal on a 95% mortgage, at a very competitive rate for this level of 2.99%. This is a fixed rate for 2 years, after which we’ll be able to look at even better deals once he’s had that period to build some equity in the property.
