Easy Homeloan Paperwork Checklist: Getting Your Home Loan Paperwork in Order

A common question that I get asked by Home Loan Clients is:

“What’s the hardest part about getting a home loan?

The clients expect me to talk about getting them the best rate, getting the loan approved or getting the loan quickly but in reality, these things are not difficult if The Mortgage Broker

  1. Is experienced in solving a variety of home loan scenarios
  2. They ask the right questions and get detailed answers
  3. Are aware of time frames &
  4. Can verify all the information provided by receiving all the necessary paperwork.


So “What’s the hardest part about getting a home loan?” In reality, it is getting all the paperwork from the client/s that is needed for an accurate assessment and that needs to be presented in full by the Mortgage Broker with the Loan Application.

So what documentation do you need to make the loan process incredibly fast? All the documentation will be contained in the following categories and many overlap. And just to be clear, no bank will accept any application without receiving  100% of the documentation. An Alpha Home Loans Mortgage Broker will help you work through this list.

  • Assets (What you Own)
  • Liabilities (What you Owe)
  • Income (What you earn)
  • Expenses (what you Spend)
  • The Security (The Home, the Investment property)

Employment (What you do, How much you get paid, how long you have been working there, Full time, part-time, casual, self-employed)


So what documentation should you source to be well prepared before the interview with the Alpha Home Loans Mortgage Broker?

  1. Statements:
