You can still take out a mortgage even if you’ve got a low credit score or no credit score
There are several reasons why you may have a low or no credit score, (for example if you haven’t had any credit commitments in the past), as this means there’s no evidence of you keeping up-to-date with payments. We work with numerous lenders that don’t credit score, so there are still mortgage options available.
- Applications based on the person not a score
- 95% mortgages available to purchase a property
- 90% remortgage available

Securing a mortgage for the couple with a low credit score
With Clever Mortgages they were able to:
Use 100% of their Universal credit and child benefit alongside their income
Take out a first-time buyer mortgage with a high street bank
Secure a fixed rate of 2.18% even though they had a poor credit history
Ensure financial stability with a good rate and low payments for two years
Start rebuilding their credit score
Mr and Mrs D were a couple of first-time buyers struggling to find a mortgage as they had low credit scores and previous defaults. They’d already been declined by a high street bank and weren’t sure if they’d be able to get onto the property ladder.
Mr and Mrs D needed a lender which would accept 100% of the Universal Credit along with Mr D’s income, which they were finding difficult.
We helped them by securing them a first-time buyer mortgage with another high street bank, which is helping them rebuild their credit scores. They now have an affordable mortgage with a fixed-term which is covered by their income and benefits. This has provided them with the security of a new home with low payments for two years.
