One of the biggest hassles of applying for a mortgage or a refinance is gathering all the paperwork. Lenders want detailed information on your finances so they can size you up and determine whether you qualify for a home loan.

Gather all of the following documents listed in the link below before you meet with your loan officer. Just to be safe, make sure you don't pack these as you prepare for your move since your lender may ask for additional documents during the application process.
