About Home Loan

You generally take a home loan for either buying a house/flat or a plot of land for construction of a house, or renovation, extension and repairs to your existing house.

Before you start the home loan process, determine your total eligibility, which will mainly depend on your repaying capacity. Your repayment capacity is based on your monthly income, which, in turn, is based on factors such as total monthly income/surplus less monthly expenses, and other factors like spouse’s income, assets, liabilities, stability of income, etc.

The bank has to make sure that you’re able to repay the loan on time. The higher the monthly disposable income, the higher will be the loan amount you will be eligible for. Typically, a bank assumes that about 50% of your monthly disposable/surplus income is available for repayment.
