Key factors to consider for Home Loan

Check This Before You Apply for a Home Loan

Check your eligibility criteria and the interest rate charged on the home loan.
You need to maintain a good credit score with CIBIL in order to get your home loan sanctioned and avail your home loan at a lower interest rate.
You do not have to pay a prepayment penalty on the floating rate home loan.
You do not have to pay foreclosure charges on floating rate home loans.
Banks charge you around 0.5-1% of the total home loan amount you apply as a processing fee. This is a non refundable amount and is not returned even if your home loan is not sanctioned.
If your bank has reduced rates for new borrowers, and if you, an existing borrower with a high credit score are charged a higher rate, you can approach the bank using the balance transfer as a bargaining chip in order to secure a lower rate from the bank.
Banks conduct a legal check on your documents namely the title deed, the sale deed as well as the encumbrance certificate to validate their authenticity and make sure the home/land does not have any pending dues associated with it.
Have your home/apartment constructed by a reputed builder/developer as they are well versed with the banks legal and due diligence processes which makes a home loan easier to avail.
