Minimum CIBIL Score for LIC Home Loan

  • CIBIL Score: Your credit behaviour and track record from your past lenders and credit card providers gets captured in your CIBIL score.

When checking eligibility for home loan, LIC Housing Finance will look at the complete CIBIL report, which also includes all past running loans and your payment track record on loans and credit cards. Higher credit score increases your chances that your loan application to LIC Housing Finance will get approved. However, low CIBIL score will decrease your eligibility to get home loan. LIC Housing Finance requires a minimum credit score of 650 to be eligible for a home loan.

There are few factors which affect your credit score -

  • Late payments – If you have delayed in payments on your existing or past loans, it negatively affects your CIBIL score and reduces your chances of getting a loan from LIC Housing Finance.
  • High number of unsecured loans – Always keep a balance between secured and unsecured loans. More number of unsecured loans can adversely affect your credit score.
  • Usage of credit limit – Credit card bills and use of credit limit shows your credit behaviour. Outstanding credit card balance close to 30% of credit card limit reflects a potential financial stress, indiscipline on your part and may adversely impact your credit score.
  • Multiple loan applications – If you apply for loan in multiple banks at one time, it can affect your score negatively and reduce your CIBIL score. In case of application rejection from LIC Housing Finance, improve your credit worthiness to get a good score.
