We tend to find some First Time Buyers in Birmingham struggle to secure a mortgage because they have poor credit. You see, one lenders’ credit score can vary, some are more difficult to pass than others. Some lender can sometimes be quite reluctant in terms of informing you as to why you failed their lending criteria. This may be down to a mixture of reasons. Sometimes the lender themselves can’t precisely say why your application was unsuccessful because ‘it is not knowledge in their hands’.
We recommend you speak with one of our Mortgage Advisors in Birmingham. During your free initial mortgage appointment, we can obtain a up-to-date copy of your credit file.

For most lenders the larger your deposit, the more likely you will be accepted for a mortgage. A larger deposit can help pay off a larger chunk of the property value. This means that you’ll most likely borrow less and the lower the loan-to-value.
