      "Home Loan application is experience is very easy and good.."
      0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
      Awesome experience at Bankbaaar.com. The process for applying the online application loan is very easy and it is very much flexible too. It took only 10 minutes to apply an online application instead of going to bank and standing in Queue. Definitely I will recommend this site to my friends and colleagues too.

      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      I have received a home loan from SBI on 2013. I got the SBI home loan within 10 to 12 days of time. I am happy about the loan amount. The rate of interest was low, when compared with others. The customer service with SBI is really good. I am satisfied with the home loan service offered by SBI.

    • ICICI Bank Home Loan
      "Need Transparency in the process"
      0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
      I have got the ICICI bank home loan around 12 years ago. The executive has promised that they will offer the loan with flat interest rate but in documents I found it was a floating interest rate. ICICI need to stick on their promises. The rate of interest is nominal at present. ICICI can still increase the loan amount. I am satisfied with the ICICI bank service.

      Great website to check the offer for multiple banks in a single page. Also it supports in calculating the EMI with multiple options to know about the EMI with loan amount, duration, and interest rate and it also gives an option to make a reverse calculation and identify the required EMI/Duration/Rate of interest by giving other parameters as input,

      Very simple and fast process as I experienced. I think it is better option rather than approaching offices for applications and validating it etc. You can access the review as well compare it with the proposals of other agencies. You can opt for the best option.

      "Good Process"
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      I had availed home loan from HDFC ltd. I had got this loan for 18 lakhs. And the interest rate in the beginning was around 9.50% after which I put an application to reduce the interest rate, hence they reduced it further to 8.50%. There were no challenges with the bank during the entire loan process.

      0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
      I have got the home loan with the Bank of Baroda and the interest rate is around 8.35%, also the loan amount got disbursed in couple of months of time. Document collection is like a kind of lengthy process. Processing charges were not okay for me, also they lack when it comes to transparency. They advised me to take the mortgage, which does not applicable with any other banker.

      I had an issue with my existing bank and that issue got resolved, so I have not dealt with the Indiabulls as of now. Rate of interest was around 8.5% with the Indiabulls for the home loan but that was on the paper. Customer service was good one, also they have followed on time and again. I would like to say that the bankers should stick with the commitments, especially when it comes to interest rate.

    Home Loan BYTES FROM OUR KITCHEN

    Overview:

    Holding a debt is an unwanted and distressing thought for many individuals. Any loan taken is a form of debt which needs to be repaid with the addition of interest that is applicable on that loan. Considering this, it is only natural that anyone who holds a home loan, would want to pay it off as soon as their finances have improved. Loan prepayment is defined as when a customer has paid off their loan completely or partially before the scheduled due date as specified in the policy wording. However, prepayment on a home loan, though considered by many loan takers, may not always be the best financial decision that one can make. There are multiple factors which one must consider before deciding to pre-close their home loan.

    Who can make Home Loan Prepayment?

    While a prepayment on your home loan can be beneficial for you, it is a loss for your home loan provider. For home loans, banks borrow funds based on a commitment for a long time period. When a customer pre-closes their home loan, those funds received by the bank must be re-assigned through credit channels, which is an additional cost for the bank to bear. This is the reason why loan borrowers are discouraged from prepaying their loan by the bank. One of the most common method in which banks discourage prepayment on home loans is be refusing to accept the payment unless the borrower visits the bank branch in person. However, though most people may not be aware of the fact that even if they may not be physically present at the bank branch to make the prepayment, they can do so by authorizing a representative to make the payment of their behalf. For this purpose, the representative must carry a letter issued by the original loan borrower authorizing them to make the payment on their (the loan borrower’s) behalf.

    Some Do’s & Don’ts of Home Loan Prepayment:

    Given below are a few things to remember when you are making your home loan prepayment:

    1. Do remember to carry a Government issued photo ID proof like your PAN card, Passport or Driving Licence, etc.
    2. Do remember to carry your cheque book as you will be making not only for the home loan prepayment principal amount but also for the simple interest applicable on your home loan which needs to be paid alongside.
    3. Don’t forget to mention your details like your name, contact number and home loan account number behind all the cheques which you issue to the bank for prepayment.
    4. You must remember to take the acknowledgement of the pre-payment that you’re making. The acknowledgement must mention details like the post-prepayment principal outstanding amount, remaining of the home loan duration or the new EMI. Ensure that the acknowledgement is duly stamped and signed by the authorized bank representative.
    5. In the event that your EMI payment is done via cheques and your EMI has been revised and reduced following the prepayment, then you will be required to issue fresh cheques with the revised EMI amount. Having done that, do not forget collect the previously issued unused cheques which you had issued with the higher EMI amount. This is to prevent misuse of your funds.
    6. Carry along your bank statement, of the account from which you have been making your home loan payments, for the past 6 months. This may be required as some banks might request you to provide the source of the funds for your home loan pre-payment.

    Updating Pre-payment Details in the CIBIL Database:

    One of the most important parts of the prepayment process is updating your prepayment details in the CIBIL database. Your CIBIL score is essentially a proof of your credit health and is heavily dependent on your outstanding home loan balance. Therefore, making a prepayment on your home loan can greatly decrease your outstanding balance and improve your credit score.

    While banks may be quick to update your CIBIL score hen you’ve take the loan, they may not be as efficient to update the score when you have pre-paid your loan. You must ask your bank to immediately update your current home loan account balance in the CIBIL database with the revised principal balance amount. It can normally take from 45 to 60 days for the details to be updated, counting from the date when the prepayment has been made. Do remember to go through your CIBIL report after the mentioned duration required for updating the score on the database and check if the same has been done.

    News About Home Loan Prepayment

    • RBI Grants Extra 30 days for Repayment of Loans

      The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced that it will be extending the repayment period for all loans up to Rs.1 crore by an extra 30 days over the original 60 days it had given borrowers, after which the accounts will be considered non-performing assets (NPAs). This dispensation will be applicable to dues payable between November 1st, 2016 and December 31st, 2016. The extension in the repayment period was provided due to the disruption in economic activity in the country due to the demonetization of the Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 currency notes.
