You could still take out a mortgage even if you’ve had a CCJ

If you have a registered or settled County Court Judgement (CCJ), there are still mortgages available. As CCJs are issued when you haven’t paid money you owe, this can impact you taking out a mortgage. At Clever Mortgages we work with lenders that could accept your application.

  • Up to 95% mortgages for CCJs registered over three years
  • No need to wait 6 years for your CCJ to fall off your credit report
  • The CCJ does not always need to be repaid
  • Can still be considered for Help-to-Buy, Right-to-Buy and Shared Ownership

Securing a mortgage for one customer who’d previously been declined because of a CCJ

We help customers do just that. Our customer Mr Z was able to:

Take out a mortgage of almost £300,000 even though his wife had a CCJ and other previous defaults Secure a fixed rate of 1.73% for the initial 5 years Complete the purchase of his property in just one month

Mr Z wanted to buy a property but had previously been declined for a mortgage as his wife had bad credit, including a CCJ. At Clever Mortgages, we enabled him to:

Another reason why the couple’s previous mortgage application had been declined was because the new property was next door to the home of another family member.

Having access to so many products though meant we were able to secure a mortgage with a lender which was happy to offer them a mortgage despite the CCJ, previous defaults and the property’s proximity to another family home.

Completing the purchase within just one month was another factor which made this case so successful for the couple.
