Get copies of your mortgage documents.

The typical loan package and papers received at settlement will often require a specific folder or storage method to keep your mortgage documents together. You can request copies of lender-submitted paperwork that bears your signature. Some homeowners will send original copies of documents such as pay stubs, retirement statements, bank statements and other items. Your mortgage lender can furnish documents upon your request.

Step 1

Ask your mortgage company to return any recently submitted original documents. Use a mortgage statement to locate your lender’s phone number. Call the customer service department to request the return your of your documents or copies of a recent application package for refinancing or a loan modification.

Step 2

Send a written request to your mortgage servicer to obtain copies of documents that you signed at settlement, such as a mortgage note, deed of trust or good faith estimate.

Step 3

Visit the records department of your local court. View public records that reflect details about your mortgage and property.
