Specialists in Bad Credit Mortgages
‘Where other brokers may not have been able to help you, in most cases we can. Why? Because we are prepared to go the extra mile and have the knowledge and experience, backed up by the most up to date sourcing systems, to be in a position to help YOU.’
Welcome to A Mortgage 4 You, the mortgage specialists who are here to help clients who have a Bad or Poor Credit history, who are discharged Bankrupts, have been in Debt Management or have been in an IVA. Why can we help you when most lenders or Brokers cannot help? Because we make it our business to form relationships with lenders who base their decision to lend on a manual underwrite, and not on how many points you have scored. We spend a great deal of time researching Specialist Lenders, learning whose underwriting criteria will accept various levels of Bad Credit, and then add this to our already extensive database. With over 50 years of experience in financial services we know our business and we are here to help you. Call me now, Michael Alexander on 03452 605506, or 07867 794837 and you may just get a pleasant surprise.
With most lenders in today’s market basing their decision to lend, or not, on credit scoring, any Bad or Poor credit history that remains on your credit file will have a negative impact on how most lenders will view you for mortgage purposes.
Your credit file covers the history of how you have managed your credit and mortgage arrangements over the last six years. Any late or missed payments, credit defaults, CCJ’s, Bankruptcy or an IVA, could mean that you will fail the credit score and be declined by the lender

Bad Credit Mortgages
Our Panel of Lenders
Can our lenders help in this difficult market?
You will find with our lenders that even in this very difficult market, our lenders want to help you if they can. What we have seen in 2016 and 2017 , and we know will continue in 2018 and beyond, is the new breed of Challenger Banks coming to the market, with niche products and a flexible lending criteria. Most people will have a financial dip in their lifetime, but it is how you have dealt with that dip that matters. If we can assure our lenders it was a one off event in your life, over which you had no control, they will make an informed decision to lend whenever they can. Consistent bad payers will never change, and it is not them that we are looking to help.
We have an excellent relationship with our lenders for introducing to them good clients, who may have been down but are now very much back on the way up. It’s you that we want to help, and if it can be done we will do it.
You have nothing to lose by picking up the phone and calling us, or email and request a call back. We are here to help you and we will always do best to find a lender that will help us, and we know that no one fights any harder for our clients’ than we do.
Mortgages are what we specialise in, for clients who need that extra bit of help to help them achieve their goals when most lenders would say ‘no’. It could be Bad or Poor Credit history, self employment, agency/ contractual workers, Ex-Pats, Bridging and Development Finance, second charge lending, buy to lets, HMO’s holiday homes, we love a challenge. If you need help with any of these, please call me, Michael J Alexander 03452 605506 or 07867 794837

“Bad Credit Mortgages”
We are special because we know our market, and our lenders trust us because we are totally honest and transparent with them from day one. We are not time waster’s we make no upfront charges, so if we cannot help you we will tell you as soon as possible. Our business model is that we want to see everything from you up front, your credit file and any information that will have an impact on your application. If we can see very early on what the lender will see when looking at you, we are in the driving seat, and we can, if at all possible take you to the lender who will say YES.
Helping Clients With A Bad Or Poor Credit History
We now have a very new and different breed of lenders who will credit check and find any adverse credit, but the decision to lend is made by an underwriter who can take a view based on the client’s credit history, the loan to value and any circumstances or event that may have been beyond the client’s control. I think that I would call it commonsense lending, that wonderful word that has almost disappeared from our language
