Adverse Credit Mortgages - Missed Payments

Missed Payments

When you enter into a financial commitment, you will usually make monthly payments. If you do not make full payments on time you will lower your chances of getting future credit. Missed payments appear on your credit file and the more recent, the more damaging it can be.


A default notice is usually sent after between three and six missed payments and often requiring repayment of the entire sum borrowed. Defaults will show on your credit file and are seen as more serious than arrears as they demonstrate ongoing financial difficulties.


The word “arrears” refers to a repayment that has not been paid in full and is past the date due. On a credit report, arrears is quoted by the number of missed or short payments. The effect of arrears when applying for a mortgage depends on their frequency and recency.

No Credit History

If you are going to take out a mortgage the lender will require evidence that you are going to repay the loan. This can be difficult if you have no record of borrowing and making payments on time, so you may be refused a mortgage, even if you have never been in debt.


A County Court Judgment (CCJ) is a court order that may be registered against you if you do not pay money that you owe. If you do not pay a CCJ in full with 30 days of the date of the judgement it will appear on your credit file where it will stay for six years.


Bankruptcy is a type of insolvency when you are unable to clear your unsecured debts. It is declared on a voluntary basis or by a creditor as a last resort. A bankruptcy order will usually last around a year but will appear on your credit file for up to six years.


A lender can apply to the court for an order to repossess your home if you fail to keep up-to-date with payments that are secured on it. This will, of course, have an effect on your chances of getting another mortgage, depending on the circumstances.
