To get a home loan, there are several things you would need. First, you have to have good credit. If you qualify credit wise, then you have to prove your employment. This is called a Verification of Employment form that your employer fills out. If you are self -employed, then we normally do is what is called a 'Stated Income' loan. When the loan officer is filling out the loan application, the person getting the loan simply tells them how much he/she is making. You generally can't borrow more than a payment of 45% of what you make per month (before taxes).
If the lending institution asks for bank statements, what they want is actual monthly bank statements of your checking account. Generally, you can get these online. What they are looking for is 'your deposits' to verify you make what you said you make.
If they ask for a profit and loss statement (this is generally for the self-employed), then you have to do that. It's quite simple. You have two columns. One is for the jobs you have done, and how much you took in, the next is for the expenses. The bottom line should be a profit. Hopefully, this has been of some help.
