Different Types of Home Loan in India

An aspiring homebuyer has several loan options at their disposal if their eligibility and financial standing are strong and meet the basic lending criteria.

  1. Home loans for purchasing property

    Home Loans in their purest form are used to purchase a property – be it an under-construction or read-to-move in one. In such a case, the lender retains a degree of ownership of the property until the borrower has cleared off all their dues. The borrower can only take back the ownership of the house after full loan repayment.
  2. Home Renovation Loans:

    Home renovation loans cater to home improvement projects or expenses one might incur during a renovation. 
  3. Home Expansion Loans:

     Not to be confused with Home renovation loans, Home expansion loans are meant to fund the cost of expanding your existing housing property.
  4. Home Construction Loans:

    Home construction loans fund the construction of a new house from scratch and not new constructions on an existing property, unlike expansion loans. Some lenders allow the cost of the plot to be included in the loan amount, provided the plot has been purchased in under a year of seeking the loan.
  5. Home Loan Balance Transfers:

     This loan facility allows you to transfer your ongoing Home Loan to a new lender to leverage better lending terms and make possible savings on your current EMI amount.
  6. Joint Home Loan:

    A joint Home Loan is a housing loan taken by two or more people to divide the liability and boost application’s eligibility. This is beneficial on several counts, and also helps the borrowers save substantially through tax rebates.

Borrowers are advised to diligently research what market lenders are prepared to offer and how to meet their eligibility criteria to benefit from their Home Loan terms.
