HOME LOAN Information

A Home Loan is exactly what it sounds like – a loan to purchase a house. This house may be ready for possession or under construction. Till the full repayment of the loan with interest, the property is mortgaged to the financial institution as a security. Thus, it is sometimes referred to as a Mortgage Loan.

This is differentiated from loans wherein you use your existing property as security. Home Loans are obtained to spend on the property itself; using property as a security allows you to obtain loans for other purposes.

The Structure

Banks usually dispense Home Loans with either adjustable or predefined interest rates. Similarly, payment terms may be alterable or fixed. It can be repaid in full or in installments. In a Floating Rate Home Loan, the interest rate on your loan varies during the loan tenure. Lenders have their individual benchmark rates to determine their respective floating rates. In Fixed Rate Home Loans, the interest rate is predetermined, irrespective of market conditions. This kind of Home Loan is unaffected by changes in RBI interest rates.

The particulars of the payment vary with each bank and are unique to your property and credit rating.

The Ideal Time

Home Loans are most suitable for times when you want to buy a property immediately. If the property is likely to increase in its market price in the future, it is sensible to borrow. Ensure you have a good income to installment ratio. Never borrow more than you have the ability to repay. The maximum tenure of repayment is circa thirty years. Considering the fact that you pay interest according to the number of installments or your time window, choosing a tenure as short as possible reduces your interest rates and saves you unnecessary costs. Be regular with your installments. Untimely payments not only negatively impact your credit scores but also accumulate your dues.

One golden rule of borrowing is not using loans for investments. Should the market price crash, not only will you have suffered a losses on the property itself but will also be burdened with your repayment of the loan. And of course, compare and calculate the amount of interest you’d have to pay on the offers from each bank and pick the one most suited for you. And this is where we are here to help out.

HOME LOAN Documents Required

Home Loan Eligibility

To be eligible for a Home Loan, you must be an Indian citizen of the age of twenty-one or above. By the time the loan is entirely paid off, you should not have exceeded the age of seventy.

Increasing Your Eligibility

When applying for a Home Loan, a good credit ranking always increases your chances at acquiring any form of monetary assistance from financial institutions. Similarly, maintaining a steady flowing income, habitual savings, and regular investments is an indicator of your reliability as a client. Moreover, having an earning family member as a co-applicant assures the bank that your chances of defaulting are fewer. Not having many dependants on you for sustenance is also considered a positive factor. Essentially, preserving a stable financial record makes it easier to convince financial institutions to give you loans.

Furthermore, your property must be insured against common hazards to receive a loan on it. It also helps to ensure that your property is free from ‘encumbrances’ – liabilities such as unpaid loans or bills.
