    When applying for a mortgage, your lender will ask you for a number of financial documents. These will include your bank statements, so you will need them to hand before your application goes through.

    In years past, we all received our bank statements through the post. This was fine, but when applying for a mortgage, it did slow things down a little. Thankfully, we now have the internet at our disposal, and this means we can quickly download and print our bank statements online.

    This is great news for you because you won’t have to wait for the mailman to arrive, and you won’t have to worry about finding old statements that you may have filed away. All of your bank statements can be found in your online banking account, and downloading them and printing them is easy. We will go through the steps you need to take in this article on how to view, save and print your bank statements including how to download them.

    Why Do Mortgage Lenders Need My Bank Statements?

    To put it simply, your mortgage lender needs to verify that you have enough money coming into your bank account to make your monthly payments. They also want to make sure you have enough money to cover your down payment and the closing costs of the loan. Lenders also check bank statements to find out where your money is coming from. This can help to prevent fraud as the lender will want to know that the money used for your mortgage payments will come from legitimate means. 

    Once the lender is satisfied that you have enough money in your bank account, the application process will continue. This is why it’s important to get your bank statements as quickly as possible. As soon as your lender gets to see them, the sooner your mortgage application can continue. Downloading and printing bank statements from your online banking account is simple, and most UK banks now offer this service.
