What does a credit score of 917 mean?

Answered on 20 May 2017 by Nick Morrey

With a credit score of 917 would I get a mortgage?

The credit reference agency scores are really only a very loose guide to your potential mortgageability. There are many other factors, including how much deposit you have, your income against your expenditure, the property itself, which all are taken into account by a lender, when assessing if you can have a mortgage.

You really would need to talk to one our of our consultants to see exactly what your options are. If you'd like to do so, then you can call us on 0344 346 3672 and we can give you a clearer idea of exactly what you can / can't do.
