Home Loan is a secured loan given by a bank against the security/hypothecation of an underlying property. In the event of failure to repay by the borrower, the bank can, subject to laws of India, attach/sell the underlying property and recover the principal amount and any outstanding interest thereon. A home loan can be availed for buying an under-construction property, built-up house, resale property or even to construct a house on a vacant piece of land.

Loan eligibility is dependent on primarily the following factors:

  1. Cumulative net monthly salary of the applicant and co-applicant.
  2. Quantum of loans and credit card outstanding that you already have. Typically a bank will not give a loan if the total EMI obligation (including the current home loan that your are trying to apply for) exceeds 50-60% of your total net take home salary.
  3. Loan to asset Value (LTV) ratio of 75% which means that the customer has to fund the remaining 25% through his savings or any other source.

Pre closure means that a customer wants to close the entire principal outstanding amount at one go. Whereas part payment means that a customer wants to repay only a certain portion of the outstanding amount. Please ask our advisor for more details on this when you loan is being processed.

Home Loan preclosures are allowed without any extra charges as long as the mode of repayment you have chosen is Floating rate of Interest and not a fixed rate of interest. Regarding part payment, some banks may have a restriction on the number of times you can do a part payment per year and also the amount that can be part paid in a year. Please ask for clarifications to our or the banks’ loan advisor on all these factors before signing the loan document.

Apex Realty will work with the banks to try and get you the loan within 7 to 15 working days of submitting completed documents.

You can borrow up to 90% (upto 80% for original loan between Rs. 20-75 Lacs, & 75% for original loan above Rs. 75 Lacs) of the cost of the property in case of Home Loan Balance Transfer.

Your home loan repayment capacity as determined by Bank will help decide how much you can borrow.

You can opt for a loan period of up to 25 years or outstanding tenure of the proposed loan to be taken over whichever is lower and can vary depending on your profile.

If you are an individual – your spouse, your parents, or even your major children can be your co-applicants. The co-owner of a property has to be a co-applicant, but a co-applicant need not be the co-owner of the property.

You can take the disbursement after credit, technical and legal appraisals of the property have been done, besides execution of relevant documents & deposit of original property documents is required to be completed prior to disbursement.

You Can avail a home loan with Multinational Private Bank and Nationalize Bank, by applying online or you can get door step service from Apex Realty Group.

After the loan is disbursed, the required details are sent by the bank to the NHB (National Housing Bank) for validation of data and other checks. The NHB, after necessary due diligence, approves the subsidy to the eligible customer/borrower.

Once the subsidy amount is received from the NHB, it is credited to the borrower’s home-loan account as a part payment, and the EMI is proportionately reduced.

The option of pre-EMI is applicable only when the home or the property you intend to purchase is under construction.

Happy with the Services !!

Good service! I recently purchased one flat in Chandigarh. The cost of the property was almost 1 cr. So, I went for a home loan. I applied for a home loan with HDFC. The interest and charges are nominal and I got the loan on time without much delay. Happy with the service!!
