What is a Top-up Loan?

A Top-up Loan is a handy refinancing option for borrowers who already have an existing Home Loan and would now like to seek additional funding along with better lending terms on their ongoing Home Loan. A top-up can be facilitated through a Home Loan Balance Transfer, wherein you transfer your Home Loan balance to Bajaj Housing Finance for a more competitive interest rate.

When you opt for a balance transfer, you have the option to avail of a Top-up Loan of Rs.1 Crore* or higher, based on your eligibility – giving you access to a sizeable loan sanction as well as letting you save on your total Home Loan cost.

The Top Up Home Loan sanction comes at a relatively low interest rate compared to unsecured loans, such as a personal loan. Further, it is free of end-use restrictions and can be used to meet any financial need. If refinancing is your top priority, look no further than the Bajaj Housing Finance Top-up Loan.
