DO’s and Don’ts for a Smooth Mortgage Experience

If you’ve applied for a mortgage in the past couple of years, you may have noticed the need to provide a few more documents to your lender than in years past.  That’s because the mortgage industry continuously adjusts to new financial regulations and requirements, and it is more important than ever to ensure that the financing is documented properly.  Approval of your loan is contingent upon your financial profile on or shortly before closing, not just at the time of your application. Changes in your finances and employment during the time period between the application and closing dates could adversely affect your ability to obtain financing!  Make sure to work with your lender on this, and understand what is recommended and not recommended for you during your loan process.


  • Ask lots of questions and be sure that you understand the way the process will work
  • Provide your lender with all financial documents required for the loan, both at the beginning and throughout the process
  • Come prepared to your application meeting with income and asset statements
  • Continue to pay all financial obligations on time, including your existing mortgage, even if it is being refinanced with your mortgage transaction
  • Communicate with your lender about any changes that may occur to your purchase contract or builders contract for new construction
  • Keep your own copies of all loan documents that you sign at application
  • Provide your lender with your home owner’s insurance company contact in a timely manner
  • Expect to provide all pages of bank statements requested, and be able to source and explain any large deposits to your account that are in excess of 50% of your monthly income



  • Don’t apply for any new credit once your loan is in process. Wait to buy that new car until after the process is over!
  • Don’t change jobs or quit your current position during the loan process. The lender will need to verify your employment up to a few days before the loan closing and it is important that it remain consistent without changes during this time.
  • Don’t make any significant large charges to your credit cards
  • Don’t become a cosigner with anyone on their new debt


These simple guidelines will help your loan go well from start to finish.  Lafayette Community Bank’s mortgage team is here to help with your next lending need, and make your experience a great one!
