Tips to Reduce Loan Against Property Interest Rate

Listed below are a few quick tips that can help you reduce your Loan Against Property interest rate and overall interest liability.

     1. Choose the interest rate wisely  (fixed or floating)

You can choose either a fixed or floating rate of interest when availing of a loan against property. While there is no guarantee as to which may prove more economical, understanding how each works and can impact your home loan will help you make an informed decision.

A floating rate is suitable when the market is predicted to experience a downward trend. On the other hand, a fixed rate can be beneficial if the market rates are expected to increase in the long run. If you plan to foreclose your loan, opting for floating rates can be beneficial as foreclosure charges on this interest type are zero for individuals, as per RBI guidelines.

     2. Provide all income documents to establish your repayment capacity

Make sure you disclose all your income sources while applying for a loan against property. Submitting documentation that proves additional income, such as rent from a property, improves your profile as a borrower and, in turn, increases your loan approval chances.

     3. Apply with a high credit score and strong credit history

A high credit score endorses you as a reliable borrower who is likely to repay the sum borrowed. It represents borrower reliability and financial discipline, reducing the risk involved for the lender.

     4. Submit employment proof to negotiate better

Salaried applicants, especial those employed with reputed organizations, can negotiate on the interest rate based on their employment income and stability.
