CreditLadder teams with Nationwide to help tenants to buy

We became aware of CreditLadder towards the end of last year. A “rent recognition platform” enabling tenants to use their timely rent payments to build a better credit score, it’s a good idea. The trouble was… who was doing the recognising? Nationwide. In a new partnership, Nationwide will apply its qualifying mortgage criteria to CreditLadder data and contact tenants to let them know when they might qualify for a mortgage application. It looks as if Nationwide were the first to see the potential of an early and friendly contact with the next generation of borrowers.
