Loan Application Checklist

To help our clients be as prepared as possible, we have complied this checklist to help ensure your loan application process goes as smoothly as possible by providing a general outline of the documents you should have prepared to provide to your loan officer.

It is important to note each loan application and applicant may require additional, or different, documentation. Your loan advisor will notify you of anything that may differ from this checklist. Be sure to follow the instructions of your loan originator over our generic checklist.

Proof of the deposit or earnest money you made on the property.
