Document Checklist

Document Checklist for Loan Application
We’ll need to gather information on your financial situation in order to process your application for a home loan or a refinance of your current loan. We may ask you for some or all of this documentation during the application process. If you apply online or over the phone, we will ask you to either fax, email or mail these documents. As always, if you have any questions or need help, we are just a phone call or an email away.

Below is a list of some of the items we usually need you to provide. This is not a comprehensive list but it will get us started with processing your loan.

Pay stubs for the last 30 days

W-2 forms for the last two years

Child support/alimony — friend of the court printout or 12 months’ of cancelled checks*
