Getting a Second Home Loan
While it is possible to get a second Home Loan, it depends on your credit score and ongoing financial obligations. Applying for a second Home Loan is not very different from applying for the first Home Loan. However, borrowers are usually advised to repay their first Home Loan before taking on a second. A clear repayment capacity is a good indicator of your eligibility for a second Home Loan.
There are exceptions but taking a second Home Loan while still paying the EMIs for your first Home Loan may limit your Home Loan eligibility. Use a Home Loan Eligibility Calculator, or a Home Loan EMI Calculator to assess your repayment capacity before making your second Home Loan application.
Read on to learn more about the requirements for a second Home Loan, the tax benefits, and the Home Loan eligibility.
Ideal Lender for a Second Home Loan
You can apply for a second Home Loan with your current lender or with a new lender altogether. Whoever you choose to proceed with, ensure that you’re aware of their terms and conditions, and the parameters you need to meet, to be approved of a second Home Loan of your choice.
