|Oh for fuck's sake. Yesterday, places were all "oh yes, I'm sure we can give you a mortgage just like what you want, we could probably even go about 15000 quid higher than you want". Today the line was more like "we were lying yesterday, you can't have a mortgage, not even from those really dodgy lenders who'll give anyone a mortgage, ha ha".|
Is it because I have bad debt and bankruptcy? Because I leave trails of the dead in my wake? Because I don't have the income for it? No, none of those are true, nor have they ever been. Lenders are quite happy to give mortgages to the first two of those categories anyway. But what they really really hate, it seems, is people whose evidence of their income is in foreign money.
I have a couple more things to try, but it's starting to look like I'm going to be stuck with renting, even though all the people I can actually talk to agree that I'm obviously not a high-risk credit thing. You never get to talk to the underwriters.
Anyone got about 60000 quid they want to lend me? I'll pay higher than normal mortgage interest rates.
