Is it only your mum who thinks your perfect?

I know Iโ€™m not perfect, and mistakes often happen. Itโ€™s dead easy to miss a card payment or forget about a utility bill, the problem being that your credit file never forgets!

The reason why property can be so profitable is you can leverage your money easily. Using leverage, you can buy a house and only use 25% of your money, with the rest being borrowed from a bank. This means you can purchase millions of pounds of property while only needing money for the deposits. Once you start building a portfolio and remortgaging against higher property values, you can even buy houses from 100% mortgage debt.

Leverage multiplies your gains. If you buy a house for ยฃ100k, using a ยฃ25k deposit and it doubles in value, your ยฃ25k is now worth ยฃ125k, meaning youโ€™ve earned 400% on your original investment.

Thatโ€™s great, but to take advantage, you need a mortgage which involves checking your credit file. So I thought Iโ€™d do a video with Gary, our mortgage expert, to let you know:

  • How to build your credit score
  • What things will affect your credit score
  • Can you get a mortgage with a low credit score?
  • Can you get a BTL mortgage with defaults, county court judgements, arrears and missed/late payments?
  • Tips and tricks to improve your credit score

See below๐Ÿ‘‡

As you can see, if your credit isnโ€™t perfect, there are lots of ways you to improve it or even look at different lenders who are more flexible. Having a blip isnโ€™t the end of the world; it just means you need to do something to correct it or look elsewhere.

So donโ€™t let a tiny mistake prevent you from reaching your goal, whatever it is?
