Fund Your Child’s Higher Education With A Loan Against Property!

The news of your child’s acceptance to a prestigious university for higher studies is a moment of great pride and joy. This is not just your child's pathway to career success but also an equally important life goal for you as a parent. However, as the moment sinks in, the daunting need to arrange large funds at a short notice, dawns upon you. In such a situation, your real-estate assets could become the safest, quickest and most convenient solution for realising your child's dream.

A Loan Against Property can help you unlock the value of your property while you retain its possession. Get started with identifying the right financial partner who understands your needs and offers a personalised solution. An experienced relationship manager can help you plan the loan and recommend a mortgage with customised features and a wide range of benefits. So, make the most of the financial power of your property, and let your child take the next big step in life.

The basics of mortgage - what you need to know about a property loan:

  • Principal -This is the total amount that the lender will grant with certainty. In most cases, 50-60% of the property’s market value is granted as principal. Depending on the applicant’s profile and a good credit history, it could stretch up to 70%.
  • Interest Rate -Interest rate refers to the cost of your principal. This simply determines the extra funds you would need to repay along with the principal. Loan against property interest rates could vary depending upon various factors. However, with a clean financial profile and history, you can negotiate and get attractive interest rates.
  • Mortgage tenure - This refers to the total period you get to repay your loan - the principal and the interest. In case of a loan against property, you could be granted a repayment timeline of up to 15 years.
  • Equated Monthly Instalments (EMI) -EMI is a convenient method that enables you to repay your mortgage in monthly installments instead of a yearly lump sum amount. EMIs are calculated by dividing the sum of the principal and interest by the loan tenure.

Documentation required for property loan

In addition to your application form, the following are the documents for Loan Against Property
