Documents required

The documents required for a mortgage application will vary from bank to bank. Most will not require all the documents listed below, however, for completeness we have included a comprehensive list of what banks could theoretically ask for.

If we have a specific bank in mind for your application we will send you a copy of the bank’s own checklist or an e-mail confirming exactly what is required, so we recommend that you wait for us to do this before starting to prepare your documents for the application.

alimony (maintenance) payments or rental payments (marking bank statements clearly to highlight these is very helpful)
