Get your documents ready

Documents to support your mortgage application.

The mortgage lender will request certain documents to assess your mortgage application. They will expect to see all the documents to have your current address showing.

Most lenders use a credit scoring system so its imperative you ensure you can score as high as possible. Small things like not being on the electoral register can affect your score so make sure you are registered as soon as possible.

Ensure all you credit agreements for loans , HP agreements and credit cards are all registered to your current address.

Please note:

Your adviser will need to certify the document so will need to see the original. We recommend personal documents are not emailed unless a password has been created to protect the file.

We will provide you with access to our client portal via a link or on our website. Once registered you will be able to upload documents to your file direct securely and you can keep a track of your mortgage application.
