I have paid off my defaults so why am I still struggling to get a mortgage?

This is because defaults will remain on your credit file for 6 years after the registration date whether they are satisfied or not.

Some lenders may look upon your application more favourably where a default has been satisfied as the date of satisfaction will be shown on your credit file.
