Loan Against Property FAQs
1. Is it possible to apply for a loan against property if the property is joint owned?
Yes, it is possible provided that the co-owner of the property is the co-applicant as well. One can even avail a higher loan amount when availing a loan against a joint property.
2. Should I opt for a fresh loan against property application or choose a top-up of the existing loan? Which option is more beneficial?
Opting for a top-up will be beneficial in many ways as you wouldn’t have to go through the documentation and verification process again and the interest rate and EMI might be lower as well.
3. Is it possible to apply for a Loan Against Property if I have an existing loan?
Only if you do not have an existing loan with the same lender.
4. Is it better to opt for a higher tenure since the EMI will be lower?
While it is true that the EMI will be lower if you opt for a higher tenure, choosing a shorter tenure will result in your repaying the bank a lot less money due to the applicable interest rate. The longer the tenure the higher will be the interest that you will have to repay the bank.
5. Are there any charges apart from the interest rate when availing a loan against property?
You will have to pay the processing fee and applicable service tax and other charges when availing a loan. If you wish to close the loan before the set tenure, you will have to pay the foreclosure charges.
