So got a mortgage in June. First one . And paid all bills on time and cleared all debts before applying for mortgage. So basically I don't have any finance apart from phone and mortgage. But my credit score has gone from 443 on clearscore to 286 and very poor. Is this normal?. All it says in things I need to improve on is not to make to many credit applications. But this is when I was applying for a mortgage. I thought credit scores would have got even higher after a few months of mortgage payments.

There is literally nothing else I can see. And yes I am on the electoral role at new address ....hmmmm
