So my friend has recently moved to London (from India) along with his wife and they both have very well paying jobs in the city with reputed organisations (consultancy & bank). They plan to buy a flat in 2-3 years but I understand even if they have saved a deposit, they may not have a good credit score.
What’s the best way for them to build it over next 2 years? I suggested them to get on the electoral register & get a credit card but they don’t have UK address history (last 3 years) so can’t get a credit card. Are there any credit card providers who would issue a credit card to someone with almost UK address history?
