DHFL Home Loan Eligibility Based on Age

Age: The age is a very important factor that determines the loan eligibility and also the repayment capacity of an individual. You are eligible for a higher loan amount if your age is lower. That is because more time will be available to you to repay the loan amount. The minimum age necessary to apply for the Home Loan at DHFL is 21 years. The DHFL provides Home Loan for the maximum period of 30 years. The borrower's age should not exceed more than 65 years for salaried borrowers and 70 years for self-employed individuals.

DHFL Home Loan Eligibility Based on Salary

 Net Income: The net monthly income after deducting the PF, ESI, gratuity, etc. plays a very important role in determining your Home Loan eligibility. The capacity of an individual to pay the EMI considering the current living expenses and other obligations is judged on the basis of the net take-home salary.

For example, if the salary of an applicant is 25,000 and the value of the house he wishes to buy is 40 Lakhs, then the loan amount that he will be eligible for (with an assumption that there are no other additional EMIs) would be 25.99 Lakhs to 41.50 Lakhs depending on the age of the applicant. Similarly, if the salary is 75,000, then he might be eligible for a loan amount of 51.98 Lakhs to 83 Lakhs for the same property.

Look at the table below considering the age criteria and rate of interest offered by DHFL.

An applicant can increase Home Loan eligibility by repaying the current short-term loans.

Nature of Employment: DHFL will also check the nature of the employment of the applicant while considering the loan application. It will check whether the applicant is a salaried individual or a self-employed person. This helps to know the income stability and job security. The minimum job stability of more than 2 years is required for the salaried persons and 5 years for self-employed people.

DHFL Home Loan Eligibility Based on the Value of the Property

Value of Property:  The entire property will not be financed by DHFL. The Home Loan amount at DHFL will depend on the market value of the property too. Refer below-mentioned details to study the same:

Property Value LTV
 Up to 30 Lakhs

90%

30 Lakhs to 75 Lakhs

80%

> 75 Lakhs

75%

Co-applicant: The Home Loan applicant can increase the repayment capacity by having a co-applicant. The co-applicant must have limited obligations, good income, and good CIBIL record as well.

Property Documents: The applicant must take care that all the legal documents required by DHFL are up to the mark and cleared by the legal team.

DHFL Home Loan Eligibility Based on Minimum CIBIL Score

  • CIBIL Score: The CIBIL score records your credit behavior and the track record of all the past payments made including the Credit Card bills, previous loans, and other obligations. It is one of the important parameters used to know about the past credit behavior of the borrower and plays an important role in defining the eligibility of the applicant to get the Home Loan from DHFL. A comprehensive study of the entire CIBIL report is done while considering the Home Loan application. The higher the credit score the higher are the chances that the loan application will be approved by DHFL and vice versa. The minimum credit score of 650 and above is must to be eligible for the Home Loan from DHFL. DHFL does not provide the loan to the applicants having a low credit score as it shows the credit indiscipline and bad finance management by the applicant.

Factors affecting your credit score are:

  • Late payments: The late payments will have a negative impact on the overall credit score. The chances of getting your loan application approved by DHFL are less if you have made delays in payment of your existing or any past loans.
  • The high number of unsecured loans:The perfect balance of the secured and unsecured loan is a must to achieve a high credit score. More unsecured loans indicate finance stress and may reduce your credit score considerably.
  • Usage of credit limit:The usage of your Credit Card also plays an important role in determining your credit score. Exceeding your Credit Card limit and often withdrawals can have a negative effect on your credit score. CIBIL considers your Credit Card bill payment history as well while preparing the credits report.
  • Multiple loan applications: Applying at multiple banks for a Home Loan can also negatively affect your CIBIL score. If your Home Loan application is rejected at DHFL, it is recommended to improve your creditworthiness and then apply again.

DHFL Housing Loan Eligibility Based on FOIR

One of the most important parameters that are considered by DHFL while approving a Home Loan application is Fixed Obligation to Income Ratio (FOIR). It will consider all the current fixed obligations to estimate your Home Loan eligibility. The minimum FOIR of 0.65 is required at DHFL to be eligible for a Home Loan. The FOIR can also be calculated with the help of Home Loan calculator before applying for the Home Loan. This will help you to know the Home Loan eligibility and prepare for the same.
