Your credit history is one of the most important parts of your application when applying for a mortgage. Bad credit or a low credit score will compromise your ability to get a mortgage, because lenders will consider you at risk of defaulting on your loan.
When you’re self-employed, you have the challenge of proving you have the capacity to repay your mortgage. Though self-employed individuals will need to supply a lot more paperwork to qualify for a mortgage.
