Andhra Bank Home Loan Eligibility Criteria

Different banks have a different set of rules when it comes to eligibility criteria. Indian citizens who are salaried and self-employed have the same eligibility criteria. To avail Andhra Bank Home Loan, it is mandatory for an individual to be an Indian or a person of Indian origin. Individuals can be salaried, self-employed professionals and self-employed non-professionals. Andhra Bank assesses an individual's repayment capacity by examining the financial position and present condition. Age is also an important factor when it comes to eligibility criteria.

  1. Your current income: The applicant must have a regular source of monthly income and to prove that, they have to present their salary slips, bank statement, and other documents. Self-employed individuals have to furnish financial records, accounts and financial statements to show in detail the credits for good and services sold by them.
  2. Continuity of employment/business: Salaried employees should furnish Income Tax Return (ITR), Form 16 and Form 26AS to show the continuity of employment. Self-employed individuals need to bring financial statements like balance sheet, profit and loss statement to prove continuity of business. ITR is also required to complement the financial statements.
  3. Current obligations: At the time of taking a loan, an applicant may have an existing loan. Banks have to take into account these installments as well to calculate eligibility for a Home Loan.
  4. Credit history: Credit history of an applicant is of utmost importance to a bank to assess the credibility of the applicant. Bureaus like CIBIL, Experian, and others are responsible for keeping a track of loan related activities of every borrower. These credit bureaus assess your credit history to generate your credit score. A score is a number generally between 300 and 900. Defaults in payments can substantially lower your CIBIL score. A CIBIL score above 650 is considered good and increases your chance of getting a loan.
  5. Value of the property: Banks run a background check on the property to check whether or not it is free from any discrepancies. After the check, the banks usually sanction 75% - 90% of the value of the property. The balance is the margin for the bank and the balance is to be contributed by the borrower.
  6. Legal position: Banks finance the land or building. The land or building that they finance is the mortgage as well. So banks rely heavily on reports furnished by the panel of advocates to establish ownership chain of the property.
  7. Age of the borrower: Person taking the loan should be between 21 and 65 years of age. Also, the age of the individual should not be more than 75 years at the time of loan maturity.
