    Precise Mortgages - how long from application to offer? 5th Jul 16 at 2:57 PM
    Hi all,

    I've searched for answers to this, but can't find anything recent.

    If anyone has dealt with Precise recently, I'd appreciate any insight into your timelines?

    Thanks in advance

    So far our application went in on Friday 1st October and valuation fee was taken the same day!!

    Hopefully not a long wait. We have literally submitted every bit of paperwork possible so hoping they won't come back for more!!

    Hi Tini

    I was declined by Aldermore as I got a default registered against my name for 230 whilst mid application, they were very strict.

    I went to Precise and I got my offer through last Thursday, it took about 5 weeks for them to assess the application plus 2 weeks for my mortgage broker to review all the documentation. I would advise getting a good broker to get you through Precise.

    Good Luck,

    OK so our story so far....

    Application went in on 7th October. They took valuation fee the same day as well as full credit checks. 14th October they returned our valuation fee. I spoke to our broker who said they would look into it. Eventually got back to us today to inform us Precise have returned our application due to a default registered in the last 3 months. I'm at my wits end with this company. We have not had a default for over 3 years now so I'm unsure of where this has come from. Brokers have requested all copies of credit files from Experian and Equifax which we sent today. Absolutley nothing on them. We have no debt apart from a 8500 lol an which Precise are aware of. I'm.so confused and disheartened with the whole situation. We've had a clean sheet for over 3 years and seem to be getting no where with this company.

    I can honestly say most of you reading through this thread could have got a high street non sub prime mortgage , did you actually speak to any high street lenders to see if you could apply ? You would be surprised given you are getting a secured loan how flexible they are ...... Even with a poor credit score it's all about affordability , if you have defaults over 2 years old definitely try high street lenders

    Can I ask what high street lenders you would recommend? I have a Dip with precise at the moment and assumed maybe wrongly that a high street lender wouldn't touch someone with a poor credit rating.

    The affordability is not an issue a all. But my credit is not great following a divorce!

    Hi, We have obtained AIP from Precise Mortgage to remortgage BTL and to obtain new BTL property.

    I have paid the valuation to the broker so hopefully will hear more update wothin afew weeks.

    A questions which went out of my mind and didnt ask the broker.

    Does Precise allow extra payments to be made on the mortgage without occuring ERP? I know most mortgage companies allow 10% but I am not sure of precise.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    We are nervously awaiting news from Precise regarding our mortgage offer. We had submitted all the evidence our broker asked for only to be asked a week later for another three additional documents. Is this a good sign that we have been asked for more evidence rather than being declined?
    Has anyone been asked to submit evidence several times and still been declined after weeks of this back and forth comunications with Precise?

    Thanks.

    Hi, just wondering how your app with Precise went? Did you move into the house?


    We have an AIP with Precise at the moment & I have seen a 'soft credit check' on my Experian report. Is that what happened to you? Which CRA's did they check at full app? Was it just Equifax & Experian or Equifax, Experian and Callcredit?


    Many thanks...

    Got our DIP today, Debt to income ratio was high so had to agree to repay some CCards with gift from my parents. Will not accept my husbands income even though he has a gov pension so having to rely solely on my income. Will be glad when we get a full decision.
