There is a lot of it. Given the changes in federal regulations that were implemented after the housing bubble  burst, we as mortgage lenders  have to document EVERYTHING in order to stay compliant with these federal laws. Thus, when additional documentation is requested it is not because we want to make you work harder, it is required by law to have everything.

Helpful Tips:

  • If a document says “1 of 6” we will need all 6 pages of that document, even if it is blank.
  • We always need consecutive documents, meaning if we need 2 months of bank statements, each day in those 2 months must be represented in the statements.
  • If you are getting a gift from a relative to help with your down payment we will require a gift letter (which we will provide) and a bank statement from the donor to verify they have the funds available to give.
  • Please upload your documentation through our web portal if possible. If you filled out your application online you already have an account with us and you can log in there and upload your documents. Click here to access the web portal.
