Loan Against Property
business idea you need funding for? Do you need to
invest in your business expansion? Do you just need
relatively cheap funds for any purpose ?
If you have a loan-free property then probably a Loan Against Property is the answer for you.
Popularly known as LAP in the financial services circles, these loans are a convenient means to access funds at interest rates which are lower than personal loans or other forms of unsecured loans.
To avail such loans, you offer an existing property as a security or collateral against which the lender-- usually a Bank, an NBFC or a housing finance company -- gives you a loan. The current market value of the property determines how much loan you can avail against the property. Such loans allow the owners of properties to leverage the value of their existing properties to raise funds for a variety of reasons.
Loans against property may be availed on:
• Residential properties
• Commercial Properties
• Industrial properties
These loans can also be availed against a plot and not just against a constructed property . At most times they are priced slightly higher than regular Home loans but are definitely cheaper than personal or other unsecured loans.
Most institutions lend upto 80% of the value of the property as a Home loan, provided the borrower can demonstrate the ability to pay the installment for such a loan.
