The process of mortgage application is anything but simple. Quite rightly so, because the lender has to scan every aspect of your life and assess your financial health before it decides that you are mortgage worthy. Further, it’s a sizable amount to be repaid over the long term by you and the lender must know that you will be able to service your loan diligently through the tenure.
In order to judge your creditworthiness, your prospective lender will therefore ask you to submit a whole host of documents. The documentation process is rather rigorous, but you must understand that this is an important part of your loan application, so it has to be done well. The following are the documents you need in order to put together an impeccable ‘home loan application file’.
