If the loans are below 6 months to closer of tenure or the customer is interested in closing the loan for availing the home loan then banks do not consider the existing loan for the sanction of home loan. Banks reserves the right to ask for additional documents if needed.

Why banks take co-applicant in Home Loan

Most of the banks take a co-applicant in home loans application. The co-applicant should also submit all this personal documents like ID proof, Age proof and Residential proof and sign the application form. If the income of the co-applicant is considered then the Income documents also are submitted to the bank. By signing the home loan application form and the home loan facility agreements at the time of disbursement, the co-applicant declares and accepts the liability of the home loan even if his income is not considered. At any moment during the tenure if the applicant is not able to pay the dues then banks make co-applicant as liable to repay the housing loan dues on behalf of applicant. This will be a big concern to applicants whose co-applicants are non-working or retired people. To secure them from this liability the applicant can go for home loan without any co-applicant or opt for Home loan linked life Insurance which covers Home loan liability incase if any risk occur to applicant or some insurances provide the option of paying three EMI’s of the home loan to ease from the burden in typical times once in the tenure.

It is a good product where in the customer will pay the single premium and gets covered for the entire home loan tenure and the greatest point is banks or financial institutions are funding the premium amount also. The Product covers all sorts of risks which a normal insurance covers and the outstanding loan amount will be cleared directly by the insurance company and the original documents will be returned to the co-applicant in the home loan post closure of loan account. A single premium will cover the entire liability of the home loan and secures the dependable lives from the huge liability by giving them the house if memories.

Importance of Legal Scrutiny in Home Loan

All banks in the market which provide home loan to customer definitely do legal scrutiny of the property which they are mortgaging with the bank to avail the home loan. So what is legal scrutiny then? Legal scrutiny is a very simple process and important too which will be done by the property documents provided by the customer to the bank at the submission of home loan application. The legal documents comprise of Agreement of Sale, Past 15 Years registered link documents, Encumbrance certificate, Construction Approved Plan and Tax paid receipts. Banks gets all these documents scrutinized by a panel advocates and checks whether the seller has clear and marketable title over that property and cross check with the original documents and photocopies. Post satisfactory scrutiny of property documents bank will disburse the loan. It should not be taken as granted by customer if the bank clear the property legally and it is always suggested to cross check the legality of the property personally.
