Internet Bank Statements

Banks these days offer Internet banking and no longer provide consumers with bank statements through the mail.This paperless system is environmentally sound and makes sense for today’s,

Bank Statements on the Internet
If you are applying for a loan, whether it’s a refinance or a purchase; you are going to run into some problems when the request for bank statements comes up.You need to make sure that you know how to access and print copies of your bank statements.Many of today’s banks allow you to choose between two types of bank statement printouts. There is the PDF, “Printer friendly version” which basically looks like the ones you used to get in the mail. And then there is a “ HTML ” version.p
PDF vs. HTML
What makes this “HTML” bank statement print out different is the way that it appears when printed. At the bottom of each page, there will be a series of computer code that identifies the owner of the account; and that person was using the Internet to access the statement online. This code is important to the Loan Company handling your loan and ultimately the underwriter who is going to review the statement.
In summary, it’s not that one statement is better than the other; it is more important to ask your Loan Officer which type of bank statement printout is being requested. All banks vary on this subject, but having the consumer aware of this request is more likely to save valuable time and stress during the loan process.
