Loan against property also known as mortgage loan is a secured loan taken for taking care of financial obligations. The individual can keep his residential or commercial property as collateral and get a loan. The loan amount varies as per the market value of the property. Once the person can arrange the loan against property documents required, he can check his loan against property eligibility and accordingly apply for the loan.
Before applying, a person must understand the loan against property interest rate which is being provided. Then compare the options and accordingly decide the best offer. Many Banks and NBFCs in India offer exciting mortgage loan interest rates. There are two types of interest rates: Fixed Interest Rate & Floating Interest Rate.
In a fixed interest rate, there will be no changes in the loan against property interest rate throughout the tenure. This means that the mortgage loan interest rates are not affected by any fluctuation in the market rates. This is beneficial for those who fear that mortgage loan interest rates might increase in the future.
In a floating interest rate, there will be continuous changes in the loan against property interest rate throughout the loan tenure. This means that the mortgage loan interest rates are always affected by any fluctuation in the market rates. This is beneficial for those who are confident that mortgage loan interest rates might decrease in the future. In general, the floating interest rates are linked to the MCLR i.e. Marginal Cost of Lending Rate. This MCLR is decided by the RBI’S quarterly base rate announcements.
To get a loan against property, the borrower would need a strong credit score. This credit score is very important in the mortgage loan process. While checking the loan against property eligibility, the banks will always check the credit score to evaluate the credit worthiness of the borrower. If you’re score is above 750, it is considered as a good score. But this depends from bank to bank.
The loan against property amount depends on the property market value. The bank can provide anything between 40-65%* of the property as mortgage loan value.
