Q: We have been renting for over a year and found a property we would like to make an offer for around $1.2M. We would only need to borrow $650,000 but have had a few credit issues in the past and sold our previous home to clear all the debts …. the credit report is not clean. We both work full time and would like to know if we could still get a loan and what the rate might be?
