Experian Credit Report

In April 2014, the Mortgage Market Review (MMR) was introduced to make mortgage lending more responsible and stable. This means that, if you’re hoping to borrow to buy a property, you need to be confident you’ve considered how you will be able to manage your repayments in the long term - for example, in the event of an interest rate rise.

These stricter affordability rules mean that lenders will pay close attention to your income, monthly outgoings and savings as well as the information in your credit report and application form.

Is there anything I can do to boost my chances of getting a mortgage?

Income plays a major part in whether you get approved and the size of your mortgage. You also stand a better chance of securing the best rate by checking and understanding your credit report. A good report can not only boost your chances of being approved, it might help you get a mortgage at a lower rate, which will mean lower monthly repayments or possibly the ability to borrow more.

Checking your Experian Credit Report & Score regularly is a good way to protect against identity fraud.

Why should I check my Credit Report?

Most mortgage lenders want to make sure you’re able to pay them back before they give you credit – They calculate a credit score to help work out whether you’ll repay them. Your Experian Credit & Score gives you an indication on how lenders may score you, based on the information in your Experian Credit Report.

It’s important to check your credit report before you make an application for a mortgage, to check that everything is correct and up to date.
