  • Identity proof: Aadhar Card, Voter ID, and driving license 
  • Income proof
  • You are also required to mention the details of your family income, number of family members, and their age, along with their age proofs.

Here are the basic eligibility criteria to get a housing loan:

Age: The minimum age to apply for a home loan must be 18 years and not more than 70 years of age. 

Income: You must have a regular source of income as it reflects your ability to repay your EMIs on time. 

Credit score: A credit score of 650 and above is considered suitable for applying a home loan. 

Fixed Obligations to Income Ratio (FOIR): FOIR takes into account all the fixed obligations that a borrower is supposed to meet on a monthly basis. The fixed obligations do not include deductions such as PF, professional tax, and deductions for investments such as insurance or a recurring deposit. 

Loan to Value Ratio (LTV): Banks generally fund 75% to 90% of the total cost of the house. Hence, banks calculate home loan eligibility on the basis of both FOIR and LTV, and the lowest value amongst the two determines your loan amount.

So, apply soon to get your dream house. By fulfilling all the eligibility criteria and submitting a loan application, you can get an affordable house without putting too much pressure on your pocket.
