How do I manage my Home loan better

How Does Eligibility Calculation Work?

Loan Eligibility is a factor of the following criteria:

Property Value – Usually home loans are pegged to 75 – 80% of the value of the property, as determined by the lender. Borrower’s Profile – The key aspects that come into play are:

  • a) Occupation – Salaried/Professional segments command a better eligibility quotient than Business owners with erratic income
  • b) No of dependents
  • c) Company category for Salaried individuals – Most often the top 1000 or the Fortune 500 companies are regarded as Category A employers by banks and employees working in these companies enjoy better terms
  • d) Business or employment continuity – Most lenders expect a minimum of 2 years of employment; as higher experience means higher income stability

As per Income – Usually banks cap the Maximum serviceable EMI of a prospective Home loan to 50 – 60% of the Gross Monthly income. In case of self-employed borrowers, the banks look at the cash flows generated from the business such as:

  • Profit after tax
  • Depreciation
  • Partners’ remuneration (in case of a Partnership firm)
  • Interest on Capital (in case of a Partnership firm)
  • Director’s remuneration (in case of a Pvt Ltd Company)

How to increase my loan eligibility:
