Can I get a mortgage with a DMP?

With an active DMP

It is possible to get a mortgage with an active Debt Manangement Plan (DMP) but the liklihood of be eligible for any mortgage application will heavily depend on what credit issues, if any, led up to the DMP. If credit issues prior to the creation of a DMP include an IVA and/or mortgage arrears, eligibility for any mortgage application reduces dramatically. If you do fit the application criteria for eligibility any mortgage offer may include the condition that the debt underlying the DMP must be settled on completion. So, if you have equity in your home sufficient to settle your DMP and satisfy any lender loan to value (LTV) criteria, remortgage may be an option you could consider to start getting yourself back to where you want to be with your credit record. But settlement of the DMP may not have to be a condition which will affect any affordability calculations as the lender will take into account debt owed and DMP monthly payments when performing proposed mortgage affordability calculations.

If the DMP has been settled

The longer the DMP has been settled the easier the placement of any mortgage becomes. If you have just settled your DMP you can expect LTV's to be below 85%, and, depending on how you managed your DMP, this could go as low as 75%.
