    NRI Home Loan Reviews

    • Bank of Baroda Home Loan
      "Worst bank ever"
      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      I took a NRI home loan from Ambawadi Branch, Ahmedabad. can't even handle local, BOB is not even eligible to be a local bank forget about international. I have NRI home loan and savings account with them. First of all they told us they can do all paperwork in 15 days it took over a month for them to do everything. after the loan is done. it is impossible to get hold of anyone who can answer your question over the phone. they cut the phone or never pick up, never answer any email ever. really Frustrating. So beware before you open account here or take a loan. go somewhere else

    • HDFC Limited Home Loan
      "Worst Customer experience -very disappointed - Don't take it"
      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      I took NRI loan from HDFC in London. Their staff are pretty rude and unresponsive. They are worst than SBI. They have hidden quite a number of things - e.g., whenever i gave a cheque in London office for prepayment, they send the cheque to India and only the date when they receive the cheque in India is considered as payment date. For one of my prepayment, they took almost 10 days against their SLA of 5 days. And the worst part is that they charged simple interest for that. One time, they calculated wrong EMI and sent to the bank for processing. It bounced because of lack of funds and several charges were levied. I am chasing bank for 3 months for their mistakes but I am not getting enough response. Worst experience. Overall, I feel that they hide a lot of facts and try to take as much money as possible from thecustomers.

    • HDFC Limited Home Loan
      "Fraud HDFC"
      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      I took NRI loan. It's a big mistake. I should never have taken. The staff are rude. There are many hidden charges. They hide simple interest charges of prepayment. They accept prepayment cheques in London on a certain date (X) and they take 10 days to send the cheques to Delhi. So, you will get charged 10 days of extra simple interest. The communication of the staff is extremely poor. They won't say any details of hidden charges. If they overcharge by mistake, they take ages(even months) to even start acknowledging the problem. I wouldn't recommend thinking of HDFC when you avail NRI loans. Highly fraudulent institution. I had SBI loan in the past. I think they are much better.

    • Kotak Home Loan
      "Best for home loan.."
      0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
      Without any payslips they approved the home loan. For NRI customers banks are offering up to 24% of rate but here in Kotak Mahindra bank they offered me like 9%. Kotak was happily processed the loan. For NRI customers Kotak will be best option for loans.

      "Customized home loan for NRI"
      0.5 3.0/5 "Satisfactory"
      I had no idea about a different home loan schemes for NRIs until a colleague advised to me check the various NRI home loan schemes for the NRIs. The loan officer at IBHFL assessed my financial credential and based on my needs offered me a customized home loan plan. I am glad that the EMI is affordable also the repayment option is quite flexible.

    • Bank Bazaar Home Loan
      "Review number: 4538"
      0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
      Its been great experience with bankbazaar.com. They are fast, warm, quick responsive. I opted for NRI home loan. When my loan approved from HDFC LTD, bankbazaar.com contacted me in order to receive bonus check. ( Although I was not sure about bonus check as my disbursement delayed by few days and I thought I may not get bonus check by bankbazaar ).But they surprised me by sending check to my address.Great Experience & since I got cheapest loan offer I must say 'Most Economical Experience'.
