The Mortgage Minute- What loan documentation do you need?
Though the exact documentation that will be needed in your situation will depend on, well, your situation, there is a core group of documents that are part of pretty much every loan application.
And that is what we are going to be taking a look at today.
- pay stubs covering the most recent 30 days available.
- W2’s for the two most recent tax years as well as your federal tax returns for the two most recent tax years. If you file separate business returns you will need to provide the two most recent tax years of those returns.
- Bank statements for the two most recent months available or the most recent quarter depending on how that account reports.
- Photo ID
- Letters of explanation depending on the situation in your file.
- Bankruptcy papers If you filed bankruptcy
- If you receive or pay alimony or child support you will be asked to provide that paperwork as well.
So there you have it, an overview of the loan documentation needed to start your loan application.
Keep in mind that this is just an overview, not a complete list of all the documents needed for your loan. Your lender will provide you with a specific list of the loan documentation needed for your specific situation.
