One in two people fit ‘non-standard’ lending criteria*.
Our nationwide study estimates one in two people (53%) already fall into one or more lending criteria classed as ‘non-standard’. And of the 7,000 consumers we surveyed, 19% said they’d been rejected for a mortgage within the last five years citing the following reasons:
Having ‘non-standard’ income – such as being self-employed
Being in a 'non-standard' buying situation – such as Shared Ownership
Wanting to buy a ‘non-standard’ property – such as one with a thatched roof
Having a ‘non-standard’ profile – such as being divorced or over 55
Having thin or impaired credit
