5 Factors that affect your Home Loan Eligibility

5 Factors that affect your Home Loan Eligibility

A home loan can make it financially comfortable for you to buy your own home. When you apply for a home loan, the lenders first ensure that you are prepared to meet the long-term financial commitment before sanctioning it.

Here are the 5 factors that affect your home loan eligibility:


Your chances of getting an approval for a home loan application will be higher if age is on your side. The younger you are and the farther you are from your retirement, the better the lenders will feel about granting you a home loan.

Profession & income

Lenders are typically wary of those applicants who aren’t working in the traditional industries (that follow a corporate structure). This is because the repayment capacity of such applicants remains questionable due to the strong element of uncertainty that unconventional jobs involve with regards to security and/or safety. Moreover, if you’ve job hopped a lot, it’ll reflect negatively on your ability to hold down a job. On the other hand, a steady source of income will improve your home loan eligibility. You will also qualify for a higher home loan amount if you’ve held the same job for over a couple of years. Most of the online housing loan eligibility calculators take into account the monthly income to determine home loan eligibility.

Property age

Avoid choosing older property if possible. If the property you are considering is very old, the lenders will carry out independent evaluations to factor in the chances of a structural collapse. Depending on the results, your home loan eligibility will be determined. The lenders may also consider the existing properties or assets that you may have. If your loan against property eligibility is high, it’ll improve your home loan eligibility too.

Credit score

Before approving your home loan, lenders assess your credit behavior from your credit history or CIBIL score to check your reliability as a borrower. Your CIBIL score should be greater than 750 (out of 900) for good home loan eligibility. If you’ve got outstanding credit or pre-existing loans, or have defaulted on credit before, your credit score will be poor and your application might get rejected.

Number of Dependants

Lenders will also consider the number of dependents (such as retired parents, children, or spouse) you have.  The repayment capacity and home loan eligibility are judged if you have more dependents

Tip: Use a home loan eligibility calculator! A home loan eligibility calculator (aka housing loan eligibility calculator) will help you to calculate the amount of home loan that you qualify for, based on the home loan tenure and home loan interest.
