How long ago the credit defaults were listed on your credit file / credit report. The more recent the credit problems the worse it looks to the lender.
If you have paid, settled or unpaid defaults/judgments at the time of application. The lender will look more favorably on your application if you have paid rather than unpaid defaults.

If you have stable employment and can provide sufficient evidence (such as pay slips and group certificates) you will be considered as lower risk and receive a lower interest rate all other things being equal.
