  • 2 recent pay stubs
  • Phone number for Human Resources Dept. to verify employment.
  • 2 months bank statements for checking and savings account
  • 2 most recent years of W2s (if self employed, commissioned or part owner of a corporation or business will need complete federal tax returns, and corporate tax returns)
  • Recent 401K or retirement accounts
  • Pre-approvals are free, but for a purchase or refinance we will need a check for $350 for the application fee

Borrower's checklist for refinances
