What is Loan Against Property

Loan against Property falls under the category of Secured Loan. The owner can raise funds from the bank by mortgaging his/her property with the bank.  The amount of loan given is a certain percentage of the market value. The borrower has to deposit his ownership documents with bank, which is released once the loan is fully repaid.

The rate of interest for LAP is far cheaper compared to a simple unsecured personal/business loan.

This is a long term loan which reduces the EMI significantly as compared to short term personal/business loan which attracts higher interest & lower tenure of 3 to 4 years.

There are basically two types of Loan against Property:

1)      Loan against Residential Property

2)      Loan against Commercial Property

What are the End Uses of this loan?

  • Buying another property
  • Business expansion
  • Repayment of more expensive short term loans
  • Individual needs like Marriage, Education, Vacation, Medical expenses etc.

Eligibility Criteria

First & foremost, all banks check the CIBIL score. This is more like an elimination or screening process today. CIBIL stands for Credit Information Bureau of India Ltd. The CIBIL score indicates the past credit history of the borrower. CIBIL report throws light on the borrower's repayment history related to credit cards, bank loans like Personal/Home/Auto/Mortgage loan etc. Every bank requires the borrower to possess a satisfactory CIBIL score for processing the loan application.

The past 3 year financial performance is evaluated. The Credit team looks at the Turnover, Net Profit, Outstanding liabilities, latest Debtors & Creditors etc. They try to estimate the future business & expansion plans as well.

A personal interaction with the borrower at his/her office premises is conducted by the Credit Manager, which in banking parlance is called “Personal Discussion” or “PD”.

The assets & savings of the borrower is another factor.

The banking transactions over a period of one year are crucial. Banks look for clean & healthy regular transactions.

The bank has to be satisfied with the end use of the funds. They would like to know how & where the borrower intends to use the money.
The property to be mortgaged has to clear the legal, technical & Valuation criteria of the bank. The title has to be clear & the property free from any encumbrance. The bank’s technical team visits the property for measurement & subsequent determination of market value. They also ensure the property confirms to the approved building plans. A mortgage NOC has to be issued by the builder/society enabling the bank to create the charge on the said property.
