Eligibility

Income

Two factors play a huge role under this eligibility category. First, the net annual income of the borrower, which acts as a deciding factor in whether or not a person is eligible for a home loan. Second, a person’s repayment capacity of EMIs, which is determined based on employment/work history, net monthly income (NMI) of salaried applicants and net annual income (NAI) of non-salaried applicants.

All lenders including BoB scrutinizes the applicant's Net Monthly income, ie. income after deducting taxes, other EMIs and deductions. The income details provided by the applicant has to backed by an Income Tax Return (ITR) and/or TDS certificate Form 16. If a borrower has other sources of income such as rent or interest, then banks request receipt of that income to reflect in the bank statement.

As for the repayment capacity, below is a table that illustrates the correlation between income and EMI:

Monthly Income (Salaried) Maximum deductions allowed including EMI (in %)
NMI less than Rs. 20, 000 50%
NMI above Rs. 20, 000 (< Rs. 50,000) 60%
NMI above Rs. 50, 000 (< Rs. 2 lakhs) 65%
NMI above Rs. 2 lakhs (< Rs.5 lakhs) 70%
NMI Rs. 5 lakhs and above 75%
Annual Income (Non Salaried) Maximum deductions allowed including EMI (in %)
NAI of up to Rs. 6 lakhs for last 2 years 70%
NAI of more than Rs. 6 lakhs for last 2 years 80%

Employment history and Age

Type Employment Status Age
Resident Indians Salaried resident Indians should be employed for 1 year and non-salaried for the period of 2 years

Minimum: 21 years for borrower, 18 years for co-applicant

Maximum: 70 years* (i.e. the age by which the loan should be fully repaid. Refer to the note below)

NRIs, PIOs, and OCIs Salaried NRIs must have held a regular job or work permit for past 2 years
Self-employed or business person must have stayed abroad for past 2 years

Minimum: 21 years for borrower, 18 years for co-applicant

Maximum: 70 years* (i.e. the age by which the loan should be fully repaid. Refer to the note below)

* Maximum age: The maximum age limit is set by banks, which restricts the loan repayment tenure. While most banks have set the loan repayment age limit at 60 years, BoB has set the age limit at 70 years. This would allow borrowers to have an extra 10 years to repay the loan. For example: If a 50 year old old needs a home loan, BoB’s product would come with 20 years (maximum) repayment tenure. On the other hand, other bank’s home loan would have to be repaid within or by 10 years (maximum).

Credit History and CIBIL Score

Banks rely on the loan applicant’s credit score to verify their creditworthiness. In India, CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau of India Limited) assist banks by providing them CIBIL credit score of individuals. For the same, the credit history of potential borrowers is thoroughly scrutinised. This includes combing through the applicant’s past & current secured and unsecured loans, ongoing loan applications, credit cards and other payment history.

Needless to say, CIBIL score is a crucial factor to become eligible for a Bank of Baroda Home Loan. The rate of interest of BoB’s loans varies according to the applicant’s CIBIL score.

Below is table that illustrates the correlation between an applicant’s CIBIL score and the rate of interest offered:

BoB Home Loan Product CIBIL score Interest rate (in %)
Baroda Home Loan/ Baroda Home Improvement Loan Above 760 8.30%
Baroda Home Loan/ Baroda Home Improvement Loan 725 and above but less than 760 8.55%
Baroda Home Loan/ Baroda Home Improvement Loan 675 and above but less than 725 9.30%
Baroda Home Loan/ Baroda Home Improvement Loan 0 or -1 8.55%

Borrowers must pay heed to the following factors to earn and maintain a favourable credit score:

  • Credit limit usage
  • Previous loan applications
  • Balance between secured and unsecured loans
  • Repayment record and payment history

BoB doesn’t dismiss applicants at the very first sight of a red flag (as per prescribed format of a loan application). The bank could overlook a previous repayment default if BoB determines that the borrower isn’t responsible for the non-payment. For instance, default in previous repayment might occur if the salary account was changed but the lender didn't/couldn’t update his/her bank record within the stipulated time.

As mentioned above, if an applicant’s credit history shows too many unsecured loans, then it affects their credit score. But BoB studies the borrower’s history to discover if the nature of the job demanded taking multiple loans and whether the loans were paid off without any delay. Therefore, it is possible to get a reasonable interest rate while applying for BoB home loan in spite of low credit score, as long as the spikes in the payment history are justified.

Property

The loan amount approved by a bank also depends on the value of the borrower’s purchased or constructed property. It is not possible to borrow money that equals to 100% of the property value from banks. Applicants can get up to 90% finance through home loans. The rest, which is termed as ‘margin money’ accounts for the down payment that the borrower has to arrange from their end.

BoB’s Loan to Value (LTV) Ratio is listed below:

Loan Amount Margin Money LTV Ratio
Up to Rs. 30 lakhs 10% 90%
Above Rs. 30 lakhs and up to Rs. 75 lakhs 20% 80%
Above Rs. 75 lakhs 25% 75%

As security on loan, the property (against which the loan is taken) is mortgaged, whether it is under construction or ready for possession.

Home Loan Takeover

Home loan takeover is refinancing the loan with the help of another bank, if it comes with one or more benefits. The existing loan is foreclosed by completing the formalities, as specified by the existing lending bank. This usually entails that the new lending institution pays off the outstanding principal amount to the existing bank.

A new loan agreement is then drawn out between the new bank and the borrower. This agreement specifies the renewed interest rate, outstanding loan amount, loan tenure and EMI.

Consider transferring your home loan to another financial institution or bank if it provides any valuable benefit. The benefit could be:

  • Lower interest rates
  • Option of availing a higher loan amount, if you apply for a top-up loan and are eligible for it
  • Lower EMIs
  • Longer loan repayment tenure

You can transfer your home loan to Bank of Baroda to take advantage of its competitive interest rates. In case of takeover of home loan by BoB, the borrower has to pay Rs. 7, 500, plus service tax as upfront processing charge. However, home loan takeover fees and charges are subject to change at the sole discretion of the bank. Please consult your bank or home loan consultant to know the latest fees/charges.

The loan application approval procedure, eligibility criteria and documents required to process the loan takeover is same as any standard Bank of Baroda home loan product.However, additional document(s) would be required that acts as a proof of the loan transfer and to release the submitted property documents.

Foreclosure letter, which is a consent letter given by the previous lender to the new lender with the outstanding loan amount, is one such document. The loan statement, bank statements of the account from which the last 12 months’ EMIs were deducted, and a list of property in possession of the existing lender on the bank’s letterhead are a few of the other documents that the borrower would have to submit.
