My IVA completed at the end of May, the credit Reference Agencies reports are all noted as completed as does the insolvency register. I have seen a property I would like to purchase at £120,000 my parents have offered to give me £30,000 so that’s a 25% deposit.
I would be a first time buyer, I need to move for a new start (personal reasons) and I’m currently renting. I earn £40k a year. Are there any lenders that would consider me? All I have looked online at the criteria and sub prime lenders seem to want me to have completed for a year before they will consider me for a mortgage. It’s really disappointing and disheartening I’ve not defaulted on anything since my IVA and I am now earning substantially more than when I entered my IVA, which I know know was a mistake I should have done a dmp instead.
A DMP could still be ongoing for many years after an IVA would have finished, and the creditors can register late payments and defaults for decades .... however, what is done is done --- time to look forward.....
I suggest a chat with Ryan and / or Shaun, who are both brokers with experience of adverse credit applications. Thier details can be gleaned from their respective profiles:
I guess your right. As you said what’s done is done now.
It was a huge relief to finally complete my IVA and get my certificate. I’m just feeling extremely frustrated and disheartened after an independent financial adviser has told me he cannot find a mortgage and I need to wait at least a year. But I need to move asap and my parents have kindly offered to give me what I believe is a substantial amount of money to buy a house, and I still can’t move on.
I shall contact them on Monday to discuss. Thank you!
As Foggy says a DMP can have a much longer term adverse effect on mortgage ability as the defaults can be registered at anytime whereas with the IVA the defaults should all have the IVA start date recorded against them.
