  • Annual Reducing: In this system, the principal, for which you pay interest, reduces at the end of the year. Thus you continue to pay interest on a certain portion of the principal which you have actually paid back to the lender. This means EMI for the monthly reducing system is effectively less than the annual reducing system.
  • Monthly Reducing: In this system, the principal, for which you pay interest, reduces every month as you pay your EMI.
  • Daily Reducing: In this system, the principal, for which you pay interest, reduces from the day you pay your EMI. EMI in the daily reducing system is less than the monthly reducing system

What is a fixed rate of interest?
Fixed rate of interest means the rate of interest remains unchanged for the entire duration of the loan. This means you do not benefit even if home loan interest rates drop in the market during the course of your loan.

What is a floating rate of interest?
In this case, the rate of interest fluctuates based on the market lending rate. This means you stand the risk of paying more than you budgeted for in case the lending rate goes up

What is Pre-EMI Interest?
Prior to full and final disbursement and commencement of EMI, you pay pre-emi interest on the portion of the loan disbursed to you. Pre-EMI interest is payable every month from the date of each disbursement up to the date of commencement of the EMI.

What are the other costs that usually accompany a home loan?

Home loans are usually accompanied by the following costs:

  • Pre-payment Penalties: If the Housing loan is under Variable/Floating Rate loan and the loan is repaid through any source, no prepayment charges shall apply If the Housing loan is under fixed rate, the prepayment charges shall apply except in the cases in which the customer is paying out of his ‘Own Sources’.
  • The expression ‘own sources’ indicates that the proceeds of the prepayment should be from ‘any source other than from a bank/HFC/NBFC and/ or a financial institution’.

All other Loans would continue to attract prepayment penalty upon pre-closure, as per the terms and conditions of the loan agreement which is duly signed and executed by the customer. Quick Form for Personal Loan in Delhi NCR Click here

What is the range of interest rates offered?
The home loan interest rate varies from banks to banks and normally ranges from 12.5% to 16%.

How is the interest rates calculated on my loan?
Most banks follow the yearly reducing-balance method, which accounts for your principal repayments only at the end of their financial year. As a result, you pay interest on the principal that you have already returned to the bank. The effective interest rate is therefore higher than the quoted interest rate by around 0.7%. Some banks may also follow the daily or monthly reducing-balance method, which results in a lower interest burden.

What are the bases of interest rates calculation?
The interest on Home Loans is usually calculated on Monthly Reducing or Yearly Reducing balance. In Monthly Reducing Balance, the principle on which you pay interest reduces every month as you pay your EMI. However in Yearly Reducing Balance, the principal is reduced at the end of the year, therefore you continue to pay interest on a certain part of the principal which you have actually paid back to the bank, which basically means the EMI for the Monthly Reducing system is effectively lesser than the Yearly Reducing system of calculating the interest.

What is the Fixed Rate of Interest?
Fixed Rate of Interest means that the interest rates remain FIXED for the entire duration the loan. This basically means that you do not benefit, even if the rates of interest drop in the market.

What is Floating Rate of Interest?
This is the rate of interest that fluctuates according to the market lending rate.

What are the repayment period options?
The maximum period over which one can pay the loan varies for every bank, and is also different for every scheme. Also your residential status makes a difference. If you are a resident Indian, you could avail of a loan for duration of 5-20 years. Few banks offer a 20-year repayment period, generally at a higher interest rate. As a Non-Resident Indian, you can only avail of a loan for a maximum period of 7 years.

The deduction can be claimed by both if both are paying the EMI.in case only you are paying the EMI, you should recover your brother’s share from him, it is advisable to enter into an agreement or memorandum of understanding specifying the share in the loan and share in the property.

Currently my husband and me have a joint home loan for Rs.7.75 lakh. our EMI works out to be Rs.8000 per month. I’m looking for a second home loan under my name. Does Indian banking law allows a person to have two home loans under their name? Please advice.

Under the provision of the Income Tax Act as well under banking laws, there is no restriction as to how many properties you can take a housing loan for or on the number of properties a person can own. The loan on the second property will be available provided your income is sufficient to justify repayment of both loans. The tax treatment is also different where you own more than one property.

Can a bank help me get 100% loan for the home? Or some option because I can't pay even 20% of the cost of the home.?
bank can finance only up to 80% of the property cost. The amount of loan will also depend on your annual income. if you are less than 40 years of age you should be eligible for around 4-4.5 times of your gross annual income as loan if you have no other loan to service for the margin money, you can use the balance from your saving or proceeds of the investment sold, In case arranging the funds for down payment is still difficult, you can look at withdrawing from your employee provident fund (if eligible) or look for friendly loan from your family member/friends.

Else,you can look for secured loan against tangible movable security such as jewelry, NSC, bonds, shares, units of mutual fund, or life insurance policy with high surrender value. As a last resort, you could look at an unsecured personal loan. Quick Form for Personal Loan in Delhi NCR Click here
