A loan against property is the preferred choice for enterprises seeking capital expansion and for individuals and businesses seeking to manage their cashflows. It is a secured loan that offers funds against the value of your residential or commercial property.

Loans against property are popular because of their flexible tenures and EMI options. It is critical to choose the term of your loan against property wisely to ensure there are no hiccups in repayment. Contrary to popular belief, the maximum tenure offered under a loan against property is not always the best one, so you need to carefully analyse various factors to arrive at a suitable loan against property tenure.

Tips to Identify The Ideal Loan Against Property Tenure

Although choosing the maximum tenure available for a mortgage loan may be the easiest option, you might put yourself under more financial strain in the long run. Therefore, before finalising your loan against property tenure, it is important to consider the following factors:

1. Frequency of cash inflows

It is crucial to evaluate the amount and frequency of your cash inflows, whether you are a business owner or an employee. It will enable you to manage your EMI remittances better, which in turn will help you maintain stable working capital. The recommended range for debt to income is 21% to 35%. You should select a loan against property tenure that keeps your EMI-to-income ratio within a manageable range.

2. Suitability of Maximum Tenure for a Loan Against Property

Loan borrowers believe that the maximum tenure for a loan against property provides more time to repay and lowers the EMI. However, the borrower ignores the other side of this equation, and as a result, they end up paying more than the actual cost of their debt as the increased loan tenure leads them to pay more interest.

At IIFL Home Loans, we help you compute your EMIs faster with the Home Loan EMI Calculator.

3. Age

Your age plays a significant role in deciding your tenure. If you are a young professional, you may want to choose the maximum tenure offered under a loan against property, as it will give you more time to repay. However, if you are nearing retirement, a shorter tenure would be a wiser choice as you will have a shorter income-earning period to repay the loan.

Now that you know how to decide on a loan against property tenure, let us now look at the papers needed to obtain the loan.
