Uploading your documents FAQs

How do I access the facility?

Simply log in to the website, go to manage cases to search for a case and upload your documents using the ‘document upload’ tab.

Can my administrator use the facility?

Yes, administrators can use the document upload facility when they’ve logged in to the website with their introducer code and password.

Can I use the facility for all cases, regardless of their status?

Your case will need to be at the 'processing' stage for you to use the document upload facility. For example, you will not be able to use the facility for cases that are under appeal, declined or not yet submitted.

Is there a maximum document size?

The maximum number of documents is 20 per upload, however, any separate number of uploads can be made for each case. The maximum size for each document is 4MB.

Which file formats are accepted?

Accepted file formats are PDFs, Word documents, Excel documents and images such as jpeg and tiff files.

How do I certify documents?

You must electronically certify that you have seen originals or certified copies of documents by ticking against the document. There is no need to stamp them or sign 'originals seen' before scanning and uploading them.

How do I ensure documents conform to PCI Data Security standards?

PCI Data Security standards require the removal of any sensitive information such as card number, CVC and PIN, before documents are scanned or uploaded. You will need to tick to confirm that you have done this before uploading documents.

Can I add notes to a document?

Yes, there is a notes field assigned to each document, so you can add any comments you'd like to send us in relation to specific documents.

Will I receive confirmation of uploaded documents?

You will receive a confirmation message on screen when your documents have been uploaded successfully. This will show you details of the documents and will give you the option to print a copy for your own records.

Will the status of outstanding actions in 'case tracking' be updated?

The status of any outstanding documents in 'case tracking' will only be updated when documents have been reviewed by the underwriting team, so you will not see the status change immediately after you have uploaded outstanding documents.

I need to contact you but don’t have any documents to send, shall I use this service?

If you don’t need to upload any documents, simply send us an email using our send secure email Opens new website in another window service.
