Mortgage payment arrears are of great concern to any lender. The reason behind this is they consider, and you probably will agree, the
mortgage payment is the last payment to suffer if you fall in to financial difficulty. You will always try your utmost to keep the roof
over your head. So if you fall behind on
your mortgage payments the household financial strain would have to be quite severe.
What if the arrears have been cleared
If your mortgage is up to date but arrears are still registered on your credit report there is every possibility you could secure a mortgage,
however the loan to value (LTV) will more than likely be below 85%. The majority of lenders will consider the reason for the arrears and whether that
situation has been resolved,
such as getting a new job following losing one, when considering any mortgage application.
