A home loan balance transfer is the process of transferring your existing home loan to another lender. By opting for the balance transfer facility, you can settle for a lender that offers a lower interest rate and better services. The process of a home loan balance transfer usually requires heavy documentation. Therefore, make sure that you keep all the necessary documents handy before applying for a home loan balance transfer.

Documents for Home Loan Balance Transfer

The essential documents required for home loan balance transfer are listed below:

  • PAN Card
  • Identity Proof such as Aadhaar Card or Driving License
  • Residence Proof in case of ownaed residence
  • Rent agreement if you are staying in a rented property
  • Income proof for salaried applicants: Salary slips for last three months, bank statements for last 6 months of salaried account, latest Form 16
  • Income proof for self-employed applicants: ITR for the last 2 years, balance sheet and profit, loss account with all annexures, last 6 months’ current account statement of the business entity and saving account statement

Make sure to check your eligibility using a home loan eligibility calculator before applying for a home loan balance transfer. Also, if you have already completed a significant portion of your home loan tenure, opting for a home loan balance transfer might not be prudent. This is because while transferring the outstanding home loan to a new lender, you will be required to pay the balance transfer processing fee and other charges. As a result of these charges, you may end up paying even more than you would save on interest payments. Hence, you must evaluate all the aspects of a home loan balance transfer before opting for it.

It’s advisable to calculate the total amount you would save on interest pay-out before opting for a home loan balance transfer. With Kotak Mahindra Bank, you can pay off any existing balance home loan at a lower rate of interest.
