Precise Mortgages

As one of the UK’s leading specialist lenders and part of the OSB Group, Precise Mortgages delivers innovative buy to let and residential mortgage solutions, as well as bridging finance, all which are available solely through a nationwide intermediary base.

They’ve been helping customers underserved by high street lenders or those with a less-than-perfect credit profile since launching in 2010. They aim to broaden the criteria for mortgage approvals to support buy to let entrepreneurialism and home-owning aspirations. Their award-winning range of products is designed to help your customers get the mortgage or loan they need as quickly and as easily as possible.

With technology-driven underwriting and credit risk management processes, Precise Mortgages could be more expansive than high street lenders in their mortgage and loan approvals.

Products and criteria
