County Court Judgement

A CCJ is a judgement that a county court issues when someone has failed to pay money that they owe. CCJs are a simple way for creditors to claim the money they’re entitled to.


The failure to promptly pay interest or principal when due.

Default occurs when a debtor is unable to meet the legal obligation of debt repayment. Borrowers may default when they are unable to make the required payment or are unwilling to honour the debt.


Overdue debt, liability or obligation.

An account is said to be “in arrears” if one or more payments have been missed in transactions where regular payments are contractually required, such as mortgage or rent payments and utility or telephone bills.


An Individual Voluntary Arrangement is a legally binding agreement between you and your creditors. The arrangement will normally last 5 years and during this period you will be expected to pay what you can afford outside reasonable living costs.

An IVA has to be set up by a licensed professional called an Insolvency Practitioner (IP).


Bankruptcy is an option that often has to be considered when an individual cannot pay their debts as they fall due.

A first time bankrupt with debts will generally receive their discharge one year after the date of the bankruptcy order. (There is the possibility that in some cases the bankruptcy discharge period will be less than one year).

Low credit score

A credit score is a numerical expression based on a statistical analysis of a person’s credit files, to represent the creditworthiness  of that person.

A credit score is primarily based on credit report information typically sourced from credit bureaus. Learn how to build up your credit score and read our 5 Easy Ways To Boost Your Credit Score.

Other factors

Although the above are probably the main reasons why people can be declined for a mortgage, other factors can also be taken into account by mortgage lenders.

For example, a late payment on a credit card or mobile phone can cause an application to be declined.
