Is your client struggling to obtain a high street mortgage?
The last few years have proven to be more than a challenge for a lot of people for a variety of different reasons. An increasing amount of people that had perfect credit in the past have struggled to maintain it in the face of changes to their employment (redundancy or reduction in their pay), the high cost of living and, most recently, the energy crisis. Some may have only a slight blip on their credit history like a missed credit card or car loan payment. In either case, High Street lenders will see them with less than perfect credit.
Consequently, many are concerned they'll not be able to refinance their mortgage and get stuck paying a much higher interest rate as their current low-interest rate expires. In addition, people worry that they'll not be able to get a new mortgage if they want to move or buy a house for the first time.
The pressure that people face in the weight of adverse credit can be paralyzing and that feeling of being trapped can become overwhelming.
Whether it's knowing that they're stuck in their home, thinking they can't move into a more suitable property (as their family expands for example) or the financial pressure of their mortgage payment going up significantly and not being able to afford the payments are becoming all too common.
