Things to Consider Before Buying a Home

Picking a property free of legal liabilities is a key consideration, be it in the case of self-financing or a home loan. Any discrepancy can not only lead to rejection of your application but also jeopardize your investment in the future.

  • Property Size and Location

Make sure the size and location of the property meet your family’s requirements. Base your selection on the space available in measurement units such as sq. ft. as well as accommodations, such as the number of bedrooms.

The location of the property is another significant aspect of consideration. Check the availability of social infrastructure, such as hospitals, shopping areas, and educational institutions, when deciding a property’s location. These factors also typically determine the market price of a property.

  • RERA Compliance and Encumbrance-Free Title

House purchase is a critical decision with sizeable financial implications, both when self-financing such a purchase and availing of a housing loan for property purchase. Thus, it is imperative you pick a property free of any legal liabilities.

  • Affordability

Choose a property affordable for you to ensure comfortable repayment. Bajaj Housing Finance provides high-value home loans at attractive rates to make financing a house purchase affordable. Existing borrowers can also opt for a home loan balance transfer to refinance their outstanding loan amount and avail of a top-up amount.

  • Property Aesthetics

While buying a home, pay attention to important property aesthetics, such as sustainable design, view, layout, interiors, and exteriors.

  • Property Age

A property’s age determines its remaining life and contributes critically to its market price as well as resale value. The age of the property also contributes to lender assessment when availing of home loans in India for residential property purchase. A newly constructed property with a long shelf life commands a high market price as well as resale value and helps raise a substantial fund as a housing loan when mortgaged.

  • Construction Stage

Individuals must also consider the project completion status when purchasing a housing property under construction, as this can help determine tax benefits when financing a house purchase through a home loan.

Other essential considerations to make before purchasing a house include availability of amenities, developer’s reputation, security, and tax payment status of the seller.

Home Loan FAQs

What is a Home Loan?

Home loan is a financing solution that helps you get funds to purchase a house. The funds can also be used for renovation instead of purchase. When you avail of a home loan, you borrow an amount for property purchase at an agreed-to interest rate for a set period, known as the tenor. You then repay the loan with interest over the course of the tenor through Equated Monthly Instalments or EMIs. The property remains in the lender’s name till you repay the entire sum owed, and at the end of the tenor, the ownership switches to you. Bajaj Housing Finance home loan EMI starts from as low as Rs.645/Lakh*.

Can I Get a 100% Home Loan?

Avail of up to 80% of your property’s current market value as a home loan and consider the remaining amount for a down payment. You can avail of the maximum amount by improving your eligibility as a borrower.

The loan-to-value (LTV) amount depends primarily on your credit profile and repayment capacity. It also depends on the property’s location and amenities. You can avail of a higher loan amount when you choose a property situated in a well-connected location, equipped with all modern-day amenities.

How Do Home Loans Work in India?

Check out the following pointers to know how a home loan works in India:

  • Loan Application

After selecting a property, apply for a home loan with your preferred lender by submitting a form along with the necessary documents listed by the lender.

  • Disbursal

The lender sanctions the loan amount after verifying the documents. The disbursal happens directly in favour of the seller/builder who enters a sale agreement with the borrower. The property papers are then kept with the lender for the entire period of repayment.

  • Repayment

After the loan amount is disbursed, the borrower starts paying the EMIs. The entire loan principal and the total interest charged are distributed in monthly instalments throughout the repayment tenor.

  • Account Closure

Once the full amount is repaid, the loan account is closed. Once closed, the lender provides an NOC to the borrower and releases the property papers.

How Long Does It Take to Get a Housing Loan Sanctioned?

In the case of salaried individuals, the loan is sanctioned within 4–5 days of making an application. In the case of self-employed individuals, the funds become available within 7–8 working days.

What Are the Different Types of Home Loans Available in India?

Choose from different types of home loans to finance your house purchase or renovation. The prominent housing loan types available in India include new home loan, home construction loan, home loan for renovation, joint home loan, housing finance for women, housing finance for government employees, loan for private employees, pre-approved home loan, etc.

Can I Avail of Tax Deductions on My Home Loan?

Yes, you can avail of home loan tax benefits annually on both the principal and interest amount paid towards the total repayment liability. Section 80C of the Income Tax Act 1961 allows an annual tax deduction of up to Rs.1.5 lakh on the home loan principal repayment. Section 24B also allows a home loan tax exemption of up to Rs.2 lakh on the interest paid annually for a self-occupied property.

Which Factors Determine My Home Loan Eligibility?

Some of the factors that determine a person’s home loan eligibility criteria are age, income, employment status, place of residence, and property value. The amount of a housing loan available also depends on property specifics, such as age, location, accessibility, social infrastructural facilities available, current market price, and the resale value, apart from the set home loan eligibility criteria. Borrowers can make a higher down payment to increase their eligibility for the advance.

What Is the Minimum Salary for a Home Loan?

A salaried individual applying for a home loan must fulfil the minimum salary threshold depending on his/her city of residence. For cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Noida, and Thane, the minimum salary requirement is Rs.30,000.

For cities such as Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Baroda, Chennai, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mysore, Nagpur, and Pune, the minimum salary requirement is Rs.25,000. Use our home loan EMI calculator to assess a suitable loan amount to keep your EMIs affordable as per your salary.

Can I Prepay My Outstanding Home Loan Amount?

Yes, borrowers can opt to prepay their outstanding home loan amount at any time before the loan tenor ends. They can do so by availing of either the part-prepayment or foreclosure facility against a nominal charge. A part-prepayment facility allows borrowers to reduce their total loan liability by a significant margin.

The foreclosure feature allows individuals to close their loan account early via complete repayment in a lump sum. Bajaj Housing Finance does not levy any charges on part-prepayment or foreclosure when individuals avail of home loans on floating interest rates.

Do I Need a Guarantor for Home Loan?

What Is the Difference Between a Fixed Rate and a Floating Rate Home Loan?

The home loan interest rate levied by lenders is either fixed or floating. A fixed rate means that interest is charged on a home loan at a constant rate throughout the loan tenor. It helps borrowers determine the total interest payable at the onset of the repayment tenure.

Can I Switch from a Fixed Rate to a Floating Rate During My Home Loan Tenor?

Yes, borrowers can switch from a fixed rate home loan to a floating rate loan against a nominal fee payment. They must, however, go for a cost-benefit analysis before opting for the switch to ensure that the floating rate interest charged will help them save on the total repayment liability.

Borrowers can also opt for a home loan balance transfer when planning to check the total interest accumulation on their home loans.

Is It Mandatory to Have a Co-applicant When Applying for a Home Loan?

Financial institutions provide home loans individually to eligible applicants. Individuals lacking the necessary eligibility or requiring a higher loan amount can apply with a co-applicant for a joint home loan. The co-applicant for a joint home loan can be a parent, spouse, sister, brother, son, or daughter. Each co-applicant must individually fulfil the home loan eligibility criteria to qualify for the required housing loan amount.

It comes with a reset period spanning 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, or 2 years, and is released by financial institutions monthly. Factors contributing to MCLR determination include the marginal cost of funds, operating cost, tenure premium, and the negative carry on Cash Reserve Ratio.
