PLEASE NOTE; we may require more items to complete the loan process. Some of these items may be requested again, depending upon clarity or age of documents.  There are some items not listed that we may

obtain on our own. To our knowledge, this list should complete most, if not all of the items required from you, the borrower, to complete your transaction.  Also, due to increased regulations and more stringent underwriting guidelines required by the government than what was traditionally required, please make every effort to furnish the required documents by:___________. It’s essential that we receive the required documents by that date to ensure final loan approval & clear-to-close!

 

Thanks very much, as always, please don’t hesitate to call with any questions!
