    Nationwide DIP

    Nationwide DIP 18th May 17 at 2:45 PM
    I'm a FTB, single applicant and looking to apply for a DIP as I finally have my 10% deposit saved up, enough money for legal fees, etc and starting to look at houses. I'm just after a little bit of expert knowledge as I have a completely clear credit history apart from 4 consecutive missed payments on a closed Barclaycard account: showing as Feb 2014 (1), March 2014 (2), April 2014 (3), May 2014 (4) the account was then settled and closed in June 2014 and was for a few pounds. The closed account is on both my Equifax and Call Credit reports, but not on the Experian one and I saw that recently Nationwide now searches all 3 agencies.

    I've also read that any late payments higher than a (3) within 36 months will affect eligibility: basically, I'm on the cusp of the 36 months limit, should I wait until next month to get my DIP or am I worrying unnecessarily? Any opinions would be gratefully received.

    Nationwide is Equifax and Call Credit. Experian got the boot first week in March.

    No way of knowing what the result will be, it's suck it and see, I'm afraid.
