Bad Credit Mortgages

Mosaic Mortgages is authorised & regulated by the Financial Services Authority to provide regulated advice and arrange the mortgage most suitable for your specific circumstances. We are specialists in assisting those with a bad credit history and we provide totally independent impartial bad credit mortgage advice from all schemes currently available in the bad credit mortgage market.

This means that we will use the whole of the bad credit mortgage market and are not tied to any one bad credit mortgage lender or limited panel of lenders – This ensures that we offer you the best bad credit mortgage that is currently available.

Whatever your circumstances – whether you have a bad credit history due to a CCJ or CCJs, mortgage arrears, rent arrears, missed or late unsecured loan and credit card payments or a default / defaults, we will offer advice and make a recommendation specific to your particular bad credit requirements.

How can we help?

We have access to many exclusive bad credit mortgages that would not be available even if you were able to apply directly to the bad credit mortgage lender (In fact, many of these specialist bad credit mortgage lenders will only accept applications from Mortgage brokers).

We pride ourselves on the exceptional service that you will receive and will take your bad credit mortgage from initial enquiry through to obtaining a decision in principle (if available), followed by submission of your bad credit mortgage application and then finally to successful completion of the mortgage.

We only charge a one off broker fee on successful completion of any bad credit mortgage arranged and this fee is only £594. Any future bad credit remortgage advice given following completion is provided free of charge and our aim is to repair your bad credit history and remortgage you to a high street lender as soon as possible.
