At Christina Montesano Mortgage Broker, I understand that applying for a mortgage application can be quite challenging as gathering all the necessary documents can be a daunting task, especially if it’s for your first home. As new to the mortgage application procedure, this can be viewed as a stressful or laborious task, but with a little preparation, you can handle the process quickly and easily and obtain funding for your new home.

As an expert in the mortgage industry, I’ve created a handy checklist to help you complete your paperwork with as little stress as possible. Follow my mortgage application checklist to ensure all your documents are in order so that you can get back to the other important things in life.

1. Application requirement

Here’s a list of requirements all clients must provide to complete a mortgage application.

a. Two pieces of photo identification.

b. Complete an application form online.

The following points are dependent on the type of transaction for a property purchase.

a. Bank statements or investment statements (RRSP, Mutual Funds, Bank Accounts) showing the last 90-day transaction history to confirm down payment.

b. Full Accepted Offer, including all annexes.

c. MLS Listing

3. Refinance

If you’re filling a mortgage application for your mortgage renewal, you will need the most recent mortgage statement for the property that you’ll be refinancing.
