Easy access to home loans has made it easier for many people to buy their dream house. The process of getting a home loan has become more straightforward than it was in the past. That is why more people are preferring to take the help of a housing loan rather than using their savings to purchase a property. If you are also planning to get a home loan, you should start collecting the documents required for a home loan.
Submitting appropriate documents (for all applicants) along with your application is a critical part of the home loan application process. Here are the documents that are required for processing a home loan application:

  • Valid Passport
  • Driving License
  • Utility bills
  • Banks Statements having your address

Income documents

Lenders consider your income as one of the factors to decide your housing loan eligibility. Therefore, submitting appropriate income proofs is a critical part of home loan documentation.

In India, different income proofs are required to be submitted by salaried employees and self-employed individuals. Here is the list of income proofs,

Property related documents

If you have identified the property before applying for a home loan, you need to submit all the documents related to it. These documents clarify it to the lender that the property is free from financial liabilities. If the property is in a cooperative society, the lender may ask you to submit a no-objection certificate (NOC) from society.
