Purchasing a new property is a very exciting time for home buyers. However, for many, the process is made infinitely more stressful by the presence of bad credit. For Tier 2 Visa holders, this can be even more worrying.
Many foreign nationals with a Tier 2 Visa may consider their nationality to be an obstacle. Should a Visa be running out, it can make the situation considerably more stressful. However, Visa holders should not necessarily consider their nationality to be a major obstacle to their chances of finding the right deal. As with all home buyers, Visa holders need to be aware of their credit scores.
Bad Credit Mortgages with Tier 2 Visa
A number of things can contribute to your credit report and your credit score. Negative marks can be caused by:
CCJs – A County Court Judgement in which someone is taking action against you following a missed payment
Defaults – The failure to meet the legal obligations (or conditions) of a loan, such as a home buyer failing to make a mortgage payment
IVAs – An individual voluntary arrangement for those attempting to avoid bankruptcy
