In the situation you are currently in, bad credit might be the only thing that is keeping you from buying your own home. Perhaps you are renting right now, and watching your money beefing up somebody else?s equity? Maybe you feel like the situation is completely helpless and lost? The good news is that you can secure a mortgage with bad credit, however by restoring your Credit File and going back to a good credit situation, you are getting your financial house in order, which means you are on your way to a strong financial future.
Here a just a few reasons why it?s a good idea to restore your Credit File:
?There may be an error in it: A company you dealt with may not have reported details correctly.
?Somebody may have fraudulently used your name: Maybe somebody stole your ID and tried to apply for credit on your behalf, without your authorisation.
