How does your credit score affect Loan Against Property eligibility?

  • Highlights

  • Credit score measures creditworthiness

  • Ease in Loan Against Property application approval

  • Eligible for a high loan amount

  • Avail loans at competitive interest rates

Loan against property is a mode of finance where you get a certain amount as loan, secured against a property that you own. This property could be a piece of land, a flat, a house, rented property, etc., and the amount you receive mostly depends on the market value of the property.

Loan Against Property, being a secured loan, generally has lower interest rates, as compared to unsecured loans like personal loans with a high loan amount. The Bajaj Finserv Loan Against Property, for example, offers you a loan amount up to Rs.3.5 crore if you are self-employed, and up to Rs.1 crore if you’re a salaried individual, at affordable interest rates. Also, with pre-approved offers by Bajaj Finserv, there are no queues, no forms and no details required. Everything is already done for you.

Apart from other factors such as the loan amount, market worth of the property and loan tenor, among others, your credit score plays a critical role in determining the eligibility for the loan and its rate of interest. The higher the score, the better are the chances of procuring the loan at competitive interest rates.

Why is your credit score so important?

Your credit score is a measure of your creditworthiness and reflects your ability to repay the loan. It is a benchmark on which your risk of default is calculated. Therefore, if you have a poor credit score, or a history of default, it’s unlikely for you to be approved for any type of loan, including Loan Against Property.

Additionally, even if you are approved, you’ll be charged higher rates of interest and possibly be given a lower loan amount.

Banks are strict about the credit score and are unlikely to approve your Loan Against Property application if you have a poor credit score. Non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs) though, are more flexible and may still provide substantial loan amounts, even with a poor credit score. However, the interest rates on loan against property may be higher.

Also, with a good credit score you can secure flexible tenors for loan repayment. A flexible tenor ensures you can pay off the loan at your own convenience without dipping into your savings and impinging other essential financial goals.

Factors on which your credit score is calculated

Your credit score is calculated based on several factors, including:

- Payment history: This accounts for 35% of your score. It checks whether you’ve made your payments on time till date, which shows the possibility of you doing so in the future as well.
- Amount owed: This accounts for 30% of your credit score, and considers how much you owe. The higher your balance, the lower is your score.
- Length of credit history: It accounts for 15% of your score, and the longer your credit history, the higher is your score.

Note that opening too many new lines of credit simultaneously can cause your credit score to take a dip. You can check your credit score for free once in a year from each of the four credit information bureaus in India – TransUnion CIBIL, Equifax, HighMark and Experian.

Thus, your credit score is an important eligibility check that your conducts before they approve your Loan Against Property. So, check your score from each of the four bureaus and correct any incorrect information in your credit report before applying for the loan.
