Before you apply there are just a few reminders.
When you apply to Co-Own for Over 55s we will perform a full credit assessment to determine your affordability. Part of this assessment is to look at your credit file, not your score, using the Experian credit reference agency. We will look at your credit history which will include things like, if you have any credit cards or loans, the amounts of these and your repayments of these, and if you have missed payments. Your credit history gives us an idea of how you have managed your credit up to now.
We recommend you check your credit report before applying to make sure there are no surprises that will negatively impact your application. Don’t worry if you don’t have a credit file or do not use credit you can still apply.
Check you meet our key criteria set out below. These apply to all applicants.
We strongly recommend that before applying you read the full criteria, as applications that do not meet it will be declined. The application fee is non-refundable.
