    Equity Shortfall Sale 9th Oct 17 at 9:46 PM
    Does any one have experience with an equity shortfall sale on a mortgaged property? How would this affect credit rating etc?

    Remember, the credit rating is only seen by you and only you, your credit history is what lenders see.

    Providing the negative equity is settled it should have no impact.

    Yes, the lender has advised it would go on my credit history so just wondering if anyone has experience of this, how much would this affect getting credit in the future

    It depends WHAT is going on your credit files. A settled account would be seen positively.
