Graduates often keep student loan quiet in mortgage applications

Four out of 10 graduates do not tell their bank they have an unpaid student loan when applying for a mortgage, according to research by debt registration agency BKR.

The BKR wants student debts to be recorded in its registers so the mortgage providers can better assess how high a mortgage people can comfortably take on.
