    Mortgage post IVA 14th Apr 18 at 3:51 PM
    Dear all

    I have completed a 5 year IVA oct 2017, completion certificate arrived end of Jan. Went to bank with the good credit wife, march 2018

    Natwest were hopeful, I wasnt and my wife had a large deposit. We passed the soft credit check, i was amazed. we then went through the whole process i declared the IVA, was declined.

    However, the adviser said dont panic - we can appeal, and the appeal goes to a person not a computer.....24 hrs later the mortgage was officially approved.

    Also, I had a CCJ 6 years ago, this has fallen off the credit record - and I had paid it.once I realised I had one this was fully paid around 2015.

    We have an interest rate of 2.2%.

    I applied for an aqua credit card x 2 days after the oct finish of my IVA, accepted straight away only with a limit of 400 - this has recently be raised to 1450 after using it most months but only for around 50 to then pay off straight away.

    credit reports - these have varied...
    Noddle has improved slowly since the oct end of the iva but still sits between poor and average.
    Clear score is about 479
    Experian gives me 999/999 ???

    I recommend talking to a mortgage adviser face to face, other 'debt' mortgage advisers stated they couldnt help until oct 2018. I am not getting any younger so I am glad this has proved wrong.

    obviously, every case is different - but it finally feels like I am turning a corner
