The Checklist

In order to help you prepare for getting mortgage financing we have assembled a list of items below that you can expect to provide in order to be considered for loan approval. It is very important that lenders today are provided supporting documentation to verify what is outlined on the application (Form 1003) you complete with your loan specialist at the beginning of the process. Review the following checklist to see what items apply and you can begin to take some of the mystery out of the process and start gathering the necessary information.


If, while reviewing the list, you see any potential problems or issues with what might be requested, please contact one of our representatives to assist you with the problem and receive potential solutions.


Additional documentation may be required in case of self employed and commission based compensation.

Why Choose Us Wide Financial

Customer Reviews

  • I just refinanced in October with a different company and it took 2 months to do and was a pain. I had to think long and hard about refinancing again. I was highly impressed with Vibhu Grover. He was very attentive. He would answer questions when I emailed him at 2am. A couple minutes later, I would have an answer. He puts his customers first. I was highly impressed and would use Vibhu Grover again. I was very pleased and have recommended him to others already!

    — Andi | St. Charles, Missouri
  • Always responded promptly when I had questions and kept me up to date on everything that was happening throughout the purchase transaction. Vibhu was at closing and made me feel at ease. He made sure that all my questions were answered. US Wide Financial is a great company. They care about the people and believe in the business. That's hard to find these days. Thanks for everything.
