Fees and Charges for Home Loan

You should be ready to pay the processing fees for your housing loan. Some banks charge less processing fees, but may make up for that somewhere else. On the other hand, some banks and financial institutions consolidate their charges and include them in the processing fees. Let us look at some common charges you will most likely incur when you apply for home loan.

Upfront fee for processing

Many banks charge an upfront fee for processing your application. This is usually in the range of Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 5,000. This is a non-refundable fee, even in case the bank rejects your loan application. In case they sanction your loan, they adjust this fee in their regular processing fees.

Processing fee

This amount ranges from 0.20% to a maximum of 2% depending on your employment status. Salaried employees incur a smaller fee whereas self-employed professionals and business persons have to pay more. Some banks do have a uniform rate. Note that you have to pay GST @ 18% on this processing fee.

Valuation charges

Many banks charge for the valuation of the property. They have independent evaluators on their panel. These banks have a fixed structure of payment. Some banks insist that the customer pays to the bank whereas some of them include this amount in their processing fee structure.

Legal scrutiny charges

Legal scrutiny of the property is mandatory. The financing bank has to ensure that you get a clear title to the property so that the mortgage holds well in law. Therefore, they have a panel of legal experts who carry out the search for a period of 30 years. You need to supply the property documents to these advocates to allow them to do the needful. Some banks ask the customer to pay the advocates separately whereas many banks include these charges in their processing fees.

Mortgage registration charges

The prime security for the home loan is an equitable Most of the states in India require you to register the equitable mortgage in the bank's favour. Under such circumstances, you incur stamp duty and registration charges. The equitable mortgage does not attract stamp duty in some states like Rajasthan. However, in states like Tamil Nadu, there is a stamp duty of 1% of the loan amount subject to a maximum of 25,000. In addition, you have to pay 5,100 as registration charges. Be aware of these additional expenses when you avail Home Loan.

Pre-EMI charges

Some banks have the system of charging pre-EMI charges. Ascertain these charges beforehand.


Taking out insurance for the property is mandatory. At the same time, many banks and financing companies bunch a lot of their products like loan insurance, Mediclaim family floater policies, accident insurance, and critical illness cover, etc along with the loan. They provide the financing for the premium as well. Of course, you have to repay the same in your EMI. In a way, it is good to have these insurance policies because life is uncertain. In case something happens to the breadwinner and the principal borrower, the insurance can take care of the liability. However, other than the property insurance, all the other policies are optional. You can refuse to take them.

Home Loan Eligibility

Various factors go into the determination of your Home Loan eligibility. The basic rules for salaried people and self-employed people are the same. Some banks stipulate a higher take-home pay percentage for self-employed persons.

Your current income

Salaried employees can submit salary slips for the last three months and furnish a bank statement for the past six months where their salary is credited. Self-employed professionals should submit the statement of accounts for one year where they receive the credits for the services rendered by them.

Continuity of employment/business

Salaried employees can rely on their income tax returns, Form 16, Form 26AS, etc to display their continuity of employment. They can also show a statement of the Provident Fund account to establish the links. Self-employed businessmen and professionals can furnish the income tax returns along with other financial statements like balance sheet and profit and loss statements. They can also furnish copies of invoices raised by their clients.

Current obligations

It is possible that an applicant might have pre-existing personal loans, vehicle loans, and other loans for which they might be paying instalments. You have to account for these instalments as well while calculating Home Loan eligibility.

Credit history

he repayment track record of the applicant is of utmost importance. Every bank or financial institution is a member of CIBIL or another credit bureau. These bureaus keep track of the loan activities of every borrower. Based on this information, they generate your credit history profile and quantify the same by generating your credit score. This is a number ranging between 300 and 900. The higher your score, the better are your chances of getting a loan. Naturally, it goes without saying that defaults, frequent requests for loans or missing payments can pull down your credit score. A score of 600 and above is considered fair for determining HL eligibility.

Value of the property

The value of the property you purchase is important. The financing bank needs to determine the cost of the project it is going to finance. Banks usually finance up to 75% - 90% of the value of the property (also known as LTV or Loan to Value Ratio) with the balance being your contribution or margin as they call it.

Legal position

The prime security for any home loan is a mortgage of the land and building they have financed. You have to create the mortgage and register the same with the respective registering authorities. In order to do so, you must be legally empowered to create the mortgage. Hence, banks and financial institutions insist on a legal scrutiny report from their panel of advocates who carry out a search for the previous 30 years to establish the ownership chain.

Age of the borrower

The minimum age of the borrower at the time of home loan application should be 21. The age at the time of maturity should generally be 65 years. Some banks stretch this limit to 70 years.
