Documentation Checklist

Below are the documentation items my team will need in order to begin processing your loan. Once your processor has reviewed the loan application and documentation, he/she could ask for more documentation as needed. Our goal is to obtain a speedy underwriting approval, so your prompt attention to these items is greatly appreciated!

All documents may be submitted in one of the following ways:

  • Email to me, Katy McCoy (kmccoy@primelending.com; Katy is my Loan Officer Assistant) or to your processor (once assigned)
  • via the online application tool (return to APPLY NOW, log in and upload documents)
  • via PointServ (applicable to items marked with an asterisk *)
