Loan Application Checklist.

When applying for a home loan, you and your co-borrower (if any) will need to fill out some forms and provide some documents. These forms and documents play a role in helping your Loan Originator verify your eligibility and qualification. You can often speed up the process by preparing these documents in advance. Here is a list of what you will need. Keep in mind that you may be asked for more documents later on.
