    Mortgage help? 6th Jan 18 at 3:29 PM
    Hi all I'm new to this so bare with me, I have recently applied for a mortgage with my current bank to which was accepted until I was told yesterday that I have a unpaid credit card default back from 2009 which I had totally for got about, the credit card provider was also my current bank which I applied to would this still cause me problems if I was to apply with another lender with it being nearly 10 years old?

    It should be fine with other lenders. But check your credit reports first.

    Also bare in mind that some banks are linked - ie RBS/Natwest, HSBC/First Direct.

    Thank you for your swift reply this is just as I thought it's my stupid fault for applying to the same bank, would this now effect my chances with another lender as I have had a hard check done on my credit records from there mortgage department?
