Eligibility

Income

Income is the primary criteria based on which your eligibility is determined. Naturally, income primarily refers to disposable income. So, most banks and NBFCs deduct any sort of fixed monthly commitments (EMIs on car loans or tax payments, for example) from their calculations.

Your loan eligibility is calculated by the EMI/NMI ratio: NMI basically refers to Net Monthly Income (income after deducting monthly commitments). Lenders typically have a fixed EMI/NMI ratio for different income slabs based on which your eligibility is calculated.

Credit History and CIBIL Score

Credit History and CIBIL scores are important criterion when it comes to determining elibility. SBI using certain proprietary tools, look for specific patterns in your credit history. The last twelve months of your credit history are more important than the preceding time period.

Credit scores or CIBIL scores are determined by how well you manage your loan or credit obligations. If you’ve never missed a loan payment and keep on top of credit card bills, your credit score will be higher. Usually, credit scores range between 300 and 900; a credit score of above 700 is required for a home loan.

Rather confusingly, if you’ve never taken a loan or a credit card before, your credit score is likely to be low. Why is this? It’s because lenders have no idea about your ability to repay loans. Build a credit score by responsible management of credit before applying for a home loan.

Property

Banks look at the property you’re investing in carefully when approving a home loan. Among the things that SBI looks at when investigating the property are:

  1. Whether the title to the property is clear and whether there are any other claimants or if there is any dispute regarding the property.
  2. Whether all the necessary regulatory approvals have been taken. Absence of approvals is looked at as suppression of property records.
  3. Whether the building is constructed as per approved building norms. If the property flouts certain guidelines, there is a tendency to devalue that property when compared to other properties in the same area.
It is a good idea to establish whether you are eligible for a loan from DHFL and for how much, by using their eligibility calculator on the website. You can also use the EMI calculator to understand how much EMI will apply to you once you’ve taken the loan. Regardless of what the Eligibility calculator tells you, please consider carefully whether you can pay the EMI calculated promptly and consistently.

Home Loan Top Up

A top up loan is for anyone who wants to “top up” their home loan with additional funding to cover for unexpected cost increases. A top up loan from Dewan Housing Finance Corporation is based on the balance principal outstanding. So for instance, if your original home loan was worth Rs 10,00,000 and you have Rs 8,00,000 outstanding, you are eligible for a top up loan worth Rs 2,00,000. Please keep in mind that you’ll need to have completed atleast six months worth of EMI payments to be eligible for a top up loan. Also, the interest rate is 1-3% higher than a regular home loan but is significantly less when compared to a personal loan.

Balance Transfer to Dewan Housing Finance Corporation

The general process to transfer your home loan takes a fair amount of time, but is worth it if you find that Dewan Housing Finance Corporation offers you a lower rate of interest. Dewan Housing Finance Corporation is slightly less stringent with documentation when compared to a state run institute.
  1. Get a foreclosure letter from your current home loan provider, along with payment history and list of your documents.
  2. Apply to Dewan Housing Finance Corporation with the list of documents.
  3. The bank typically does a background check on credit history, ownership and more before they provide approval.
  4. Lastly, you complete the documentation stage with your existing bank and Dewan Housing Finance Corporation, and you are good to go.
Typically, every bank that you're transferring out of will have foreclosure charges which is usually around Rs 500+GST. Please confirm with your bank.
