Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Yes they do consider your credit history. Defaults are not as bad as a CCJ, but they still consider it.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

UKBA can consider defaults as it shows your history. But after 6 years it does not matter as they are off.
