However a word of warning, some of these lenders make themselves available direct to the public, and advertise themselves as ‘all status’ lenders. This means that in theory their lending policy will accommodate most applicants, i.e. the squeaky clean next time buyer to the recently discharged bankrupt. If you are not aware of any of adverse credit information or the level of adverse credit registered against you and submit an application to these lenders, they will ‘cascade’ you down until you fit ‘their box’ in terms of credit misdemeanours and risk policy.
Other lenders will almost certainly price their products differently, but of course if you submit to an all status lender..you may never know. You should always seek the advice of an IFA with access to the whole of the market who will source the most competitive plan to suit your personal needs and demands.
