  • Default need help

    We took out a loan in 2013 of 1500 for a sofa it was in my husbands name. The payments came out of our joint account used for utilities. We moved to USA for three years and I think I accidently cancelled the direct debit by accident. in 2016 the payments stopped. Now as we were abroad we didn't realise my mistake until last week when we applied for a mortgage now back in the UK and was shown a default in my husband name. After investigation it seems the direct debit was stopped. We never recieved a default notice as we were abroad and we had thousands in account to pay still. I am feeling sick as my husband has done nothing and his name is marked for six years meaning our family can't get a mortgage. The day we found out the mistake we paid the £600 owed to the debt collection agency. Please can someone help me to clear my husband name for a mistake I made.

    If the default has been paid off it should be marked as satisfied on the credit file and the amount shown as £0. Within a few months of the settlement the impact of the default will reduce. If that's the only issue on the credit file then a decent mortgage broker should be able to work around it - I have 5/6 defaults on my credit file that were finally all marked as satisfied in May 2018 and got full mortgage offer in December 2018.
