What is the importance of ITR in the home loan process?

ITR-related documents are always included in the list of documents for home loan. Your ITR reflects your repayment capacity, which the lenders are looking for in an applicant. That’s why it is one of the most important home loan required documents. 

Can I get a home loan without a salary slip?

A salary slip is part of the home loan requirements. It is proof of employment and income which strengthens your chances of getting a home loan. However, in case the applicant is unable to produce a salary slip, the bank or lending institution will ask for a bank statement and complete ITR details. Home loan documents related to salary are important as they also indicate your repayment capacity.

Do I need to pay additional processing fees to reduce my home loan EMIs?

A low rate of interest can lower your monthly installments. So, it’s best to switch to a lower rate of interest if you want to reduce your EMI. For this, you need to pay a switch fee to your existing lender. The fee is charged on outstanding principal or undisbursed amount (if any). At Kotak Mahindra Bank, the switch fee is 0.5% with a capping of Rs. 10,000 + GST. Visit home loan fees and charges page to know more.

What income documents do I need to reduce housing loan EMIs?

While allotting a home loan to any applicant, the very first thing banks and lending institutions look for is financial stability and repayment capacity. Documents required for home loan include bank statements, salary slips, and ITR are great indicators of such factors. Although the income documents don’t reduce the EMI directly, a good and stable income can surely help to bring down the interest rate, which, in turn, reduces the overall EMI.

What is the process of verification of home loan documents?

Upon submitting the list of documents for home loan, the bank or lending institution initiates the verification process in the following steps:

  • The Bank sends the submitted home loan required documents to our verification team
  • On receiving the documents, the verification team sends a representative to the applicant’s residence to physically verify the address
  • Apart from residential verification, the representative also verifies the workplace address to check whether the applicant works there or not
  • After that remaining documents are verified online through various portals
  • Once all the verification is completed, the team forwards the results to the home loan officer handling that particular client’s account

Based on the verification, the bank can either proceed further or reject the application.

What should be the language of the registration document?

It is always recommended to submit home loan required documents in English language. The person in charge of handling your application process may not be adept in your regional language, which can cause complexity and delays. However, if you use English as the language, the verification will be easy and the disbursement will be quick. The registration document should be in English. It helps in easy verification and gets your loan sanctioned quickly.
