Top-up loans, as the nomenclature suggests, involves the bank topping up – adding to – your existing loan. So if you already have a home loan with a bank and you have been making regular repayments, then you can apply for a top-up loan. Many banks, private and nationalized, offer top-up home loans to their existing customers.
To be able to get a top-up home loan, you have to:
Have a home loan with the bank
Be a regular and satisfactory repayment record for at least 1 year
Make a valid mortgage in the name of the bank
The following are the salient features of top-up home loans:
A top-up loan can be taken for any purpose – it need not be home improvement-related. You could treat it as a personal loan and use it for a vacation or wedding or to buy jewellery, or pay for the education expenses of yourself or your children, buy a vehicle, renovate your house, or invest it in the stock market – the choice is yours.
Top-up loans are available for up to 20 years or until the balance tenure of your original home loan, depending on the bank’s discretion. It also takes into account the customer’s profile, income, age, value of property, etc.
Top-up loans are available at interest rates similar to home loan rates, though it may be a few basis points higher than the original home loan rate. For example, SBI offers home loans at 9.4%, and top-up loans at 9.5% for up to Rs. 25 lakh.
Here is why a top-up loan is better than taking a personal loan or maxing out credit cards:Top-up home loan interest rates are quite lower than personal loans, credit cards or car loans. They are in the range of 9% to 12% in most banks, making them the cheaper option.
All customers with an existing Home Loan, Home Improvement Loan or a Home Extension Loan can apply for a Top Up Loan.You may spread out your payments for the loan over a maximum term of 15 years.
