This checklist is a general overview of the information required for a formal mortgage application. Individual situations may require additional documents prior to making a credit decision. All loans are subject to credit approval. The rate depends on the type and term of the loan. In most cases an appraisal is required; we may order an appraisal to determine the property’s value and charge you for this appraisal. The fee will need to be collected before the appraisal is ordered. We will promptly give you a copy of any appraisal, even if your loan does not close. You can pay for an additional appraisal for your own use at your own cost.
