Home loans are the longest tenure loans offered by bankers. You can get loans for 15, 20 and even 30 years so you can easily pay the EMI. The interest rates are generally the lowest in the market and usually vary based on the bank’s base lending rates or as directed by Reserve Bank of India. You have to offer upto 25% of the property price at most though banks sometimes ask you to provide only 15% while they offer loans the rest 85% of the property value.
Home loan amounts approved by banks depend on a few factors. These include where the property is located, value of the property (but, of course), your income (family income is also considered by banks), and even government policies.
Home Loan – General Details
Amount: Home loan amount will be usually 75%-85% of your property value. The percentage varies from bank to bank. But this factor does not matter much if you are paying for your home through a construction-linked plan as your margin is calculated based on how much has been released by the bank.
Interest Rate: The average interest rates are the lowest among all loans including education loans and range around 6.5%-10% if you have a good credit score. The rate is higher for those with lower credit scores due to their riskier credit profile.
Tenure: Home loans come with the longest tenures, and can range anywhere from 10 years to 30. Longer tenures give you a lower EMI though the interest burden is high. The reverse is true if you choose a longer tenure. As a rule of thumb, an interest rate of around 8% for a 15-year tenure gives you an EMI amount of Rs 1,000 for every lakh of loan.
Age: The borrower must be over 21 years and earning. The upper age limit is around 60 years in most cases though some banks may allow pensioners to apply if they can show a regular income with surplus balance left over in the account each month. Banks usually do not give home loans to applicants aged 70 years or more.
Minimum Income Requirement: Banks assessthe minimum income based on loan needed. However, one can safely assume a minimum income requirement of Rs 5-6 lakh per annum.
Maximum Loan Allowable: Some banks give loans up to Rs 10 crore while others usually have an upper limit of Rs 5 crore. In other words, if you can show income to pay off the EMI, you will get the loan.
Work Tenure Eligibility Criteria: For salaried it is 3 years and for self-employed, it is 5 years. You should have filed your income tax returns.
Documents Needed: Copies of the following documents are usually needed for home loan applications
- Passport Size Colour Photo
- PAN Card
- Aadhaar Card
- Driving License or Voter ID Card
- Bank Statement for 6 Months
- Salary Slips for Last 3 Months, or Form 16
- GST Certificate / Shop License for Business Owners
