How does a Home Loan process work?

A home loan is a secured loan/credit option where funds are provided for the purchase, construction, extension, or renovation of residential property. Home loan eligibility largely depends on several factors like employment, annual income, credit score and more. Post verification of your eligibility and property documents, the loan is disbursed. Thereafter, your Equated Monthly Instalment will start towards repayment of your home loan. A home loan is said to be closed when the principal and interest component is paid off completely by the borrower either until the end of loan tenure or by way of prepayment.
