    How hard is it likely to be to get a mortgage with no credit history?

    With no other information to work from, this assumes a high loan to value and short/address and employment history

    With some lenders you will not be accepted. With others you will be fine.

    Non-scoring lenders would be a sensible option. More sensible would be putting all three versions of your credit file in front of a decent independent broker.

    Are you on the electoral roll for 3 years minimum continuously?

    Have you had any credit? A mobile phone, buy now may later.

    Get yourself a credit builder card. Use it every month and pay off in full.
