Adverse credit mortgages are broadly defined as financial products, for property investment, that are targeted to borrowers with poor credit scores. Sub-prime lending is synonymous with adverse credit. At Boon Brokers, our advisers are sympathetic towards sub-prime borrowers. We understand that life can be unpredictable. Often, factors outside of borrowers’ control can adversely affect their credit files. Fortunately, unlike many brokers in the United Kingdom, our advisers have whole-of-market access. This means that we can access lenders that share our sympathy towards sub-prime borrowers. Sadly, these lenders are rarely known by the general public. There are some mainstream lenders, such as Halifax, who make allowances for certain adverse credit. However, most lenders have strict criteria. For example, based on current criteria, if an applicant has ever declared bankruptcy, Santander will not lend any loan sum.
