    Re: Desperately seeking help - Lowell disagreement

    I am sorry if I sounded doom and gloom and yes I do think it's harsh that one relatively small payment can hurt you.

    There is no harm trying the goodwill route but it's about managing your expectations.

    If lowell or the I o do play ball so much the better, if not , there is little you can do.

      I can't see any good grounds for the default to be removed. You can try the goodwill appeal but I would be surprised if it works.

      BUT you don't have to wait until the default disappears to get a mortgage. Anecdotally you can get a mortgage at a reasonable rate from some high street lenders if a default is
      a) over 3 years old and
      b) has been repaid fro more than a year.

      So that would be this time next year Go through a broker, don't apply direct to a lender as you may choose one who is picky about old defaults.

      If you have an unusually large deposit and very good income for what you want to borrow, it could be worth talking to a broker now.
