Nothing Missing

nothing missingWhile collecting all the supporting documents if you come across that any paper is missing and this is the reason for the loan application rejection, take a legal advice. There is always a solution to the problem, so this means there can be a solution to the missing document too. No Banks/ NBFC or any other financial institution wants to lose their customer so they are always ready to support, guide and find an alternative for you as long as you are ready to honor your contract.

Value of the Property

value of the propertyThe home loan amount is calculated on the market value of the property, as reflected in Loan – To – Value. Different norms are followed by different lenders but mostly it is about 80% of the market value of the property. Therefore, if you are sure that your property is undervalued by the lender (the outsourced technical agency), you can get the valuation done by yourself and submit the technical report at the time of reapplying for the home loan. You can also think of proving any additional security too.

Find Every Minute Detail

Find DetailsGenerally the loan rejection letter given by the lender is a generic one and does not give the proper details of the reasons behind the rejection. Once you discuss the details with the lender and find the exact reason for it, dig deep into the details to know more and take necessary steps to rectify the problem. You should focus on the problem without losing your hope.


Lower the Home Loan Amount

Low Home loan AmountIf the problem behind the loan application rejection is the loan amount that you have applied and the calculated loan eligibility. This means the monthly income is not sufficient enough to bear the burden of EMI’s and you can ask the lender about lowering the loan amount. This may help the lender to find a possibility within the Bank’s/ NBFC’s prescribed norms and limits. For example, the debt servicing ratio can be worked out so that the lender is confident and sure about the repaying capacity of the borrower.

Repay Your Existing Loans

repay existing loanYour current secured or unsecured loan can block the way of home loan approval. The Fixed Obligation-to- Income (FOIR) is increased due to the current EMI’s paid by you on your existing loans. This means that your monthly income and your monthly repayments and obligations are highly related. You must reconsider your decision to continue with your existing loans especially those which are near to their closing dates.


Check, Evaluate and Improve your Credit Report
