Are you nearing the end of your home loan tenor? Or foreclosing the home loan? In any case, you need to know the process involved in closing a home loan.

Here are the steps to follow to close a home loan:

Inform the lender:

The lenders have hundreds of loans running at the same time. Though, they have it in their records, but you’ll have to send a notice to the lender informing that you are closing your loan on a particular date.

Get all the paperwork:

Ensure you get all the paperwork, including the loan agreement and the receipts of EMIs paid. Having these documents handy will help us in a quick verification.

Assessment of payments:

Verifications related to payments and documents happen for closing a home loan. It is advised that the borrower be physically present for these verifications, as this will fasten the process.

Get an NOC:

Banks and NBFC’s issue a ‘No Objection Certificate’ on closure of your home loan. This certificate states that you have paid your entire home loan and there is no outstanding balance in your name. It is also called a certificate of home loan closure.

Remove Lien on the Property:

This might be an optional step. But if there was a lien to prevent you from selling your property, you need to get it terminated. The home loan is paid and the property is yours. It may take up to 10 business days to get this done.

Retrieve security cheques:

If you have submitted any post-dated security cheques with the lender, ensure you collect them when the loan is closed. The easier option here is having everything online.

Get a New Encumbrance Certificate (EC):

Once you close the home loan you can get an EC certificate, stating all the financial transactions related to your property. It also acts as a certificate that your property is free from any monetary or legal liabilities. This will help you sell your property in future.

Get the documents:

Retrieve all your documents submitted during the loan application. Especially in case of collaterals, retrieve the property documents.

Update your credit report:
