The DigiDocs portal

Accordion

Icon expand What is DigiDocs and why should I use it?

DigiDocs is our simple, quick and safe digital portal. You can upload all the documents we require here, for example your proof of identity and your bank statements.

We'll also upload all your mortgage documents to the portal, meaning you don't need to wait for these to arrive in the post.

You can then sign all of your mortgage documents electronically, without the need to visit a branch or post these to us.

This will help to progress your mortgage application quicker.

Accordion

Icon expand What happens if I have opted to not use DigiDocs?

If you have opted to not use the digital portal, you will be required to bring your documents into a branch and we will post all your mortgage documents to you.

This may mean your application will take longer to process.

Yes, all documentation can be submitted via the portal, you'll not need to go to our branch to provide these. 

Accordion

Icon expand Why can't I upload a selfie on my laptop or desktop computer?

Unfortuantely, we only have this functionality available via a mobile phone or tablet. 

You will need to log into the portal via a mobile or tablet device and provide evidence of your Photo ID as well as take a selfie.

You need to upload your ID within 10 minutes of uploading your Photo ID so we can compare them. 

Top Tip

 If you're using an iPhone or iPad to upload your selfies, you need to upload photos from your photo library rather than taking photos and uploading them directly from your camera. So, please make sure your selfies are saved to your library so you can successfully complete your selfie upload.

You can sign all your documentation via our digital portal. 

You can either sign using the mouse on your desktop or your finger on an tablet or mobile device. Alternatively, you can opt to type your name.
