Did you know?

Even with a bad credit history including paid or unpaid defaults, mortgage arrears and bankruptcy, Liberty can work with you to find a great home loan solution.

What can cause bad credit?

When it comes to applying for a loan, lenders will generally consider an applicant to have bad credit if they are behind in their existing loan repayments or they have a poor credit report. A poor credit report can be caused by a number of factors; for example, not paying or missing a phone bill, electricity bill or gas bill within 90 days after its due and the provider subsequently lists the unpaid account as a default on the credit report. Similarly, applying for multiple loans with different lenders within a short timeframe can also lead to bad credit as this will create a low credit score on your credit report. If you have poor credit and are interested in our home loans to help repair bad credit, speak to a Liberty Adviser today.

How do I know if I have a bad credit report?

If you are unsure of your credit history, get in contact with a credit reporting agency like Veda, Dunn and Bradstreet or Experian for a free copy of your credit file or score. The credit report includes all the information that could count towards a poor credit score including number and type of loan enquiries, type of credit providers, unpaid debts and credit infringements.

Should I tell my broker I have bad credit?

If you know you have poor credit, you should tell your broker. As long as you let them know, they will be much better placed to help find you a flexible lender such as Liberty, that can consider your application despite having a bad credit score.

What are my options if I have bad credit?

Liberty has a range of home loans to help repair bad credit to suit different borrowers. In fact, our home loans are flexible and have the ability to adjust over time to reflect improving circumstances. At Liberty we like to look at a person’s whole story, instead of just a part of it, so we can understand the circumstance of your financial history. If you know you have bad credit and need a home loan, talk to a Liberty Adviser or broker today to discuss your options further.

What does having bad credit mean?

Having bad credit usually refers to when there’s a default on your credit report, which affects your creditworthiness and means you appear more risky to lenders. This can make it incredibly hard for borrowers to be approved for the finance they need. Liberty’s home loans to help repair bad credit provide the flexibility borrowers with bad credit may need to be able to rethink their current financial situation and take the right step forward.
