What is credit scoring?
- Posted in Getting Started
Credit scoring is a statistic based assessment model adopted by many mainstream lenders.
Since the Global Financial Crisis, prime lenders and their mortgage insurers have continued to tighten their credit policies. This can affect where you stand as a borrower. Where you may have once been considered a prime loan candidate, you may now no longer be able to meet the requirements.
The truth is that credit scoring models look at many variables. This can make it difficult to understand why your loan application was declined.
Pepper does not use credit scoring, so you'll get a more flexible approach when you are assessed by Pepper.
