What is Loan Prepayment

A loan against property is a secured financing option wherein a collateral is mortgaged to avail of funds. Loans Against Property have no end-usage restrictions and offer high-value loan amounts against low-interest rates, making them an ideal financial solution to access quick and easy funds.

Another major advantage of a loan against property is that the loan amount can be prepaid anytime during the tenor without incurring hefty additional charges. With Bajaj Housing Finance, prepayment of loan against property entails following a few steps.

How to Prepay Loan Against Property?

Part-prepayment or foreclosure encompasses repaying the credits in parts before they are due, during the tenor. Our loan against property is available against flexible repayment options, which allows partial prepayments. This feature can help individuals reduce their debt when they have access to additional funds and manage their finances efficiently.

Prepayment of loan against property is an easy process and involves paying off the entire due before the tenor ends. Part-prepayment entails increasing the EMI by a certain percentage every year or paying off an extra EMI.

RBI Circular on Prepayment Charges

As per RBI guidelines, no charges or fees are to be imposed for prepayment of loan against property for the following conditions:

  • The loan has to be availed of at floating interest rates.
  • The loan application should be made by an individual applicant and not a corporate entity.

We follow RBI guidelines for foreclosure of loans against property. Thus, we provide foreclosure and part-prepayment facilities at zero charges provided that the above conditions are met.

Even for borrowers who don’t qualify under these conditions, our prepayment charges are nominal. Another important point to remember for part-prepayment or foreclosure is that borrowers need to pay at least one EMI or an amount exceeding it.

What are the Benefits of Prepayment?

The following are some benefits of prepayment:

  • The primary benefit of part prepayment of loan against property is that individuals can lower the principal left to be repaid.
  • Foreclosing frees them from large debts quickly.
  • It lowers the EMI amount or the loan tenor.

Foreclosing or part prepaying a loan against property can aid individuals in several ways, the most important of which is lowering the total cost of the loan.

Nonetheless, to enjoy such benefits and more, individuals must qualify for a loan against property by following these requirements:

  • Nationality: They must be a citizen of India and reside in the country.
