    Precise Mortgages - how long from application to offer? 5th Jul 16 at 1:57 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

    Been following thread for a while now. We!!!8217;ve currently got a application going through with precise. We had DIP on 25th May, viewed house and put reservation fee down on 26th may and full application went in on 30th May. Since then there!!!8217;s been a lot of backwards and forwards with them asking for additional documents. We are on a debt management plan which they are fine with and I!!!8217;m due to start new job on 2nd July which they have said they are ok about. But now they are saying I need a p45 from current employer which I can!!!8217;t get until end of month when I leave and payslips from new employer which i obviously can!!!8217;t get until I get paid. Does anyone else have experience with this as I!!!8217;m really worried we are going to loose a house we really want.

    They have their service times on the website
    Currently 2 working days for applications and 3 for post.

    You can always call them direct and theyl tell you when your stuff is likely to be reviewed just make sure you have your mortgage details on you!

    Yes that is a typo sorry it was submitted on my birthday so when I typed that I automatically put my date of birth. I had to jump through a lot of hoops for the mortgage offer. It was a sole application with one years limited company books 52k salary including dividends and a high debt to income ratio also I had missed payments and wasn't on the electoral role.

    Delighted to say we have been accepted today. The process has only taken 14 days from start to finish. Mortgage is for a 300k house - 225k mortgage with 20% help to buy deposit, 5% from us. I have very bad adverse credit - 2 ccjs over 2 years ago with one settled and another active plus 3 defaults - 3 still active. Over the moon to get the offer and finally get on the housing ladder!

    Hi there
    We are currently waiting for a mortgage offer from Precise and was wondering if anyone has had an experience like ours.
    Both mine and my husbands credit is good/excellent but we were declined by most lenders due to the amount of debt we have between us. We currently have a total of approx. 45,000 of loans and credit cards. Joint income of circa 65k per annum.
    We passed affordability easily (MB said we were well within our limit) and are in the process of selling our current house and buying new build with HTB. We have also been accepted for HTB.
    Full application has been in for about 2 weeks now and MB says they asked a few more questions last week and should have an answer by the end of this week.
    We are very nervous and do not want to exchange on current house in case we don't get our offer....

    Precise mortgages

    We are in the same boat! MB (l&c) submitted full application to precise last week, they come back asking for ID, 3 months BS, 3 months payslips etc.

    Precise are our last chance, Kensington and alder more said no as a default appeared on my credit report on 6th June with the default date being January 2017. Kensington your not allowed default within two years and alder more 3 years, despite me telling MB about the default they still applied! we are help to buy hence these criterias.

    Im wondering what questions they will ask about bank statements, we have nothing dodgy on bank statements however I am employed by nhs but i am on a secondment which means i get my wage for being a full time student. So therefore i was entitled to student loan which was last paid in April 2018. Im praying they don't ask to many questions around this as my secondment contract doesn't match my payslips (my pay should be more!!) as my manager never told HR at the time. Currently in the process of trying to get this sorted! I also get 'cash in hand' paid into my bank account from my second job which i haven't declared as its as and when i want to do it.

    The wait is awful!

    Anyone have any recent experiences with L&C AND/OR Precise?

    Precise asked loads of things on my bank statement such as an ultrasound payment for 30 for my partner and a transfer to my ex wife for my son. They came back for information 5 times and it looked like I was going to be declined. My house was 215000 and was htb with 5%. I finally completed with precise last Friday.

    Oh really, how long from app to offer in total?

    Im not worried about them questioning my outgoings its my income into my bank! But to be fair i haven't declared any of it towards affordability etc so it shouldn't really be a problem. But we will see.

    At what stage did they send for valuation?i see on there website it says for help to buy they aim to have an offer within 21 days.

    Congrats on your offer. Hope we are in the same boat as you soon. We need a mortgage for 284000 with a LTV 50.7% (40% equity loan and the rest deposit)

    First time buyer!

    05-09-18 - DIP/AIP given.
    06-09-18 - Reserved new build
    10-09-18 - Broker submitted barclys full application
    13-09-18 - message to say valuation is booked for next week

    Am I safe to assume that as long as the valuation is fine, we will get an offer?

    Surely they won't do the valuation before the underwriter checks.

    I would not assume anything until you get the mortgage offer physically in your possession. At the end of the day, they have thousands of applications and they might well book a valuation before they have completed all checks..

    While a valuation booking is obviously positive news, don't assume anything is certain until the paperwork is in your hand.

    We didn't do anything (even instruct searches) until we had the formal offer through the post - just to be sure!

    Hi all , have been reading through thread some hope here but can’t help to feel nervous .

    Put full application in with precise two weeks ago after receiving a DIP , they’ve searched credit file on the 17th .

    Not heard anything since but broker is on annual leave .

    We are borrowing 80,000 for a 135,000 house with a 55,000 deposit .

    However I had previous PDLs over 8 months ago (precise are aware before they gave us DIP.

    Hubby had a default 2 years ago . We have a car finance with 3000 remaining and I have a credit card with 200 owing .

    I’m so nervous even though brOker is confident as they have told precise everything. ������
