Helping one first-time buyer buy a new-build apartment

One customer wanted to buy his first home, which was a new build property, but was struggling as he had bad credit.With Clever Mortgages he was able to:
  • Buy his brand-new apartment via the Help-to-Buy Scheme
  • Take out a mortgage over 35 years with a high street lender
  • Secure an initial 5 year fixed rate of 1.99%

Our customer wanted to get on the property ladder but was struggling to find a mortgage as he had previously missed payments towards his unsecured debts and had defaults showing on his credit file. We initially secured a mortgage agreement with a specialist lender, but by the time his offer on the property was accepted his credit score had significantly improved.

As a result, we secured a mortgage with a high street lender, which offered him an even better rate and the security of a 5 year fixed rate. The customer was very grateful for this and now enjoying living in his dream new-build home.
