What are loans against rentals?

If you have a commercial or a residential property which you have put on rent, and are looking to refurbish to improve the rental prospects. In case you don have enough capital to do so, all you need is a loan against the rentals.

Yes, you could avail a loan to refurbish your property based on the future rent you are going to get from that property. This is not only cheaper as compared to the personal loan, but also it would be easier as the EMIs equated monthly installments would go from the rentals.

While most of the banks approve loan only against commercial properties, there are a few banks which approve the loan for the residential properties as well.
