Secure a home with bad credit

Home loans for bad credit are a type of mortgage that is offered from a non-conforming lender, sometimes called a specialist lender. These lenders can consider people with all kinds of situations, especially if you have evidence of poor credit on your credit file.

These bad credit home loans are designed to give Australians options when they do not meet regular banks’ guidelines.

What are the types of bad credit?

There are several credit impairments that will be classed as a bad credit history and these include:

  • Past unpaid bills and loans, or missed payments
  • Exceeding your credit card limit
  • Credit file with ‘too many’ credit checks
  • Previously bankrupt
  • A divorce leaving you in debt
  • Registered credit defaults
  • Part 9 or 10 Debt Agreement

How can you get a home loan with bad credit?

So you’ve been declined for a home loan because you have bad credit. It doesn’t mean you have to wait until your bad credit has been cleared or until you have cleared these bad credit debts.

However, if you continue to keep applying over and over, without the help of a specialist lender, then you are only making your credit file look worse by adding more applications.

This is where Loans For People With Bad Credit become your ally. We have specialist bad credit home loan lending managers who can help you by analysing your credit situation against the lending policies of the bad credit home financiers.

Common myths about Bad Credit Home Loans

People with bad credit are not necessarily ineligible for finance for a home loan or investment mortgage.

Generally borrowers seeking a bad credit home loan will require a larger deposit than those required for borrowers with a ‘clean credit history’. The reason for this is because loans for people with bad credit are not easily mortgage insured.

Common myths about bad credit home loans include:

  • People with bad credit are not ineligible for finance for a home or investment property. You can still get a home loan with bad credit, but it is more difficult to be approved when you need mortgage insurance. Mortgage insurance is typically required when you need to borrow more than 80% of the property value.
  • Home loans with Bad Credit can sometimes be provided up to 90% of the property value. This is true, but interest rates on these bad credit mortgages can be very high.
  • Obtaining a home loan with bad credit is a bad idea due to the higher interest rates. This is a very misunderstood statement. One of the most successful strategies we use is to first secure the bad credit home loan as soon as possible. Once the mortgagee has shown they can make repayments on time for a period of 12 months or more, the option of refinancing to a lower interest rate becomes available. We have helped thousands of Australian’s get a home loan with bad credit using this strategy.

How long does bad credit follow you around for?

Your credit report will show all credit enquiries in the last five years. Defaults and judgements usually remain on your credit file – both if they have been paid or unpaid. Bankruptcy can stay on your credit file for up to seven years.

We highly recommend that you get a copy of your credit report so you know where you sit – we can perform a free credit check for you.
