What You Need to Apply

  • Personal Information (Full name, Social Security number, Date of Birth, employment status, income)
  • Contact Information (phone, email)
  • Property Information (address, property type, estimated property value)
  • Requested Loan Amount

Upon submission of your application, PNC will obtain and review your credit history. Approval for credit is contingent upon your credit history and other factors.

Additional information and other required documentation may be needed to process your credit application. Depending on your individual financial situation, you may be required to provide some or all of the following:

  • Tax statements
  • Copies of pay stubs
  • Financial statements (bank and asset)
  • Information on additional properties you may own

We’ll evaluate your credit history, verify your employment, verify your income, and review all supporting documentation submitted.

We’ll verify ownership and complete a valuation of the property being pledged as collateral by ordering an appraisal product from an independent service provider, who will always inspect and photograph the property’s exterior. In some cases, this independent service provider may call you to setup a time to inspect both the property’s interior and exterior.

A review of all information will enable us to determine that you meet the qualifications for the credit product for which you applied.

If your request for credit is approved, we will communicate the final approval or a counter-offer to you, detailing any closing stipulations. For example, updating the declaration page of the Homeowner’s Insurance Policy listing PNC Bank, NA as loss payee is required. We’ll then schedule a closing date and verify the amount(s) to be disbursed, if applicable, including the amount(s) of any required payoffs.

If we are unable to approve your request for credit, you will receive a communication indicating the reasons for the decline.

At closing all applicants to provide two forms of identification; one must be a valid photo ID. After reviewing the terms and conditions of your line of credit, you will be asked to acknowledge and accept those terms and conditions by signing loan documents.

When using a primary residence as collateral, a three business day right to cancel (“rescission”) period is required by law to allow applicants the opportunity to cancel their home equity line of credit.

Once your right to cancel period has expired, the funds from your home equity line of credit will be available.
