Default "Official" Bank Statements?

Hello!

I am applying with my husband for my FLR in a week's time. We've ordered "official" bank statement from HSBC, and they arrived today no problem. They look official and proper - like an actual bank statement - double sided, etc. Will these be sufficient, or should we take them to the bank and get them to add a stamp as well?

I assume since they aren't internet statement or cashpoint statements, they are official bank printouts, they will be sufficient, I just want to be 100% sure.

Thanks!!

They are fine. Make sure you photocopy them.

Thanks for the reminder! Do you recon I'd still need to bring photocopies if I don't care if they keep the originals? We don't need them after this appointment...

Yes, you should, for your record. Keep all supporting documents, even after a successful application for a period time, for future reference and queries.

Good point. I just figured we could always order more from HSBC but yes, not a bad idea to have everything filed away. Will do! Can't wait for all this to be over now, come on January 17th!

Thanks again!
