  • Fire (House) Insurance Policy

  • Legal Description of the property

  • Appraisal (check with the mortgage broker)

Down payment

    • 3 months account history for the source of the down payment. Make sure the statement has your name and account number showing so the lender can see you’re the owner of the funds. If any portion of the down payment was recently deposited into the account the lender will request documentation to verify the source.

    • If you’ve received the down payment as a gift, then a gift letter (template available) will be required.

    • If funds are coming from the proceeds of sale of another property, you will need to provide the Purchase Contract, MLS Listing sheet and Mortgage Statement for the sold property.

    • If the down payment is coming from another source not listed please let us know so we can determine what will be required.
