When applying for a mortgage in Alabama, you will typically need to provide several documents to support your application. The specific requirements may vary depending on the lender and the type of mortgage you are applying for. However, the following documents are commonly required:

  1. Proof of identification: This includes a valid driver's license, passport, or other government-issued identification.
  2. Social security numbers: You will need to provide social security numbers for all borrowers on the mortgage application.
  3. Proof of income: This includes recent pay stubs, W-2 forms, or income tax returns for the past two years. If you are self-employed, you may need to provide additional documentation such as profit and loss statements or business tax returns.
  4. Employment verification: Lenders may require a letter from your employer verifying your employment status, length of employment, and income. They may also contact your employer directly to confirm these details.
  5. Bank statements: You will likely need to provide bank statements from the past two to three months to demonstrate your financial stability and ability to make mortgage payments.
  6. Asset statements: If you have other assets such as stocks, bonds, or retirement accounts, you may need to provide statements to verify their value.
  7. Credit history: Lenders will typically request your consent to pull your credit reports from the three main credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion). This will help them assess your creditworthiness and determine your interest rate.
  8. Property information: If you have already found a property, you may need to provide details such as the address, purchase price, and property appraisal.
  9. Documentation for other loans or debts: If you have other loans or debts, you will likely need to provide documentation, such as loan statements, to show your existing financial obligations.

Note that these are standard requirements, and additional documents may be requested depending on your specific financial situation and the lender's policies. It is best to consult with your selected lender to understand their specific document requirements.
