Worried that bad credit will ruin your chances for a mortgage or raise your mortgage rate?
You don't want a bad credit mortgage loan, with higher costs and higher mortgage rates. If you had bad credit in the past, write a letter to your lender ande explain your situation.

Lenders must take these reasons into consideration when considering your mortgage application.
