    Is this a DMP??? 12th Apr 18 at 12:38 PM
    Hi,
    Long time lurker, first time poster, pulling on my big girl pants and trying to face my debt.

    I have defaulted on a NatWest credit card which is now with Moorcroft Debt Recovery.

    My house is due for remortgage in November, and my friend, who is a mortgage advisor, says that if I start a repayment plan with Moorcroft, its classed as a DMP, and that Ill really struggle to remortgage.

    Is this correct? Scared

    He's sort of correct.
    Any debt not paid on time will have an impact on a remortgage.

    Missed payments.

    Default.

    Arrangement to pay.

    All pretty disastrous when it comes to remortgages.

    Put the situation right as early as possible and start building a more positive credit history.

    It depends on what you mean by remortgage. If its just your mortgage deal is coming to an end you can get a new deal with your existing lender and there wont be an issue. If you change lenders then you'd probably struggle

    Thanks all. His email said these arrangements are an absolute red flag and bankruptcy is seen better, surely that can!!!8217;t be right?

    You've presumably shared rather more detail with your mortgage advisor friend than you've posted on here, so perhaps it would be worth giving some more information for people to go on, e.g. scale of debt(s), earnings/assets, credit history, etc....
