  • Important Points to Keep in Mind Before Going in for LAP

Keep the below points in mind before you apply for loan against property:

  • Opt for a Shorter Tenure

Though a longer tenure of 30 years may seem quite tempting due to lower EMIs, in the long run, you would end up paying more interest. Hence, it’s advisable to go in for a shorter tenure. The best thing you could do is to ask your lender to increase your EMIs every year with the rise in your income. This would allow you to repay your loan sooner.

  • Make Your EMI Payments on Time

We at Finserv MARKETS couldn’t stress on this more. When it comes to paying your monthly EMIs, it’s very important that you follow strict guidelines and pay them on your fixed dates every month. This will help you stay away from late payment penalties and will also maintain a good credit score rating as well. Irregular repayments will make it difficult for you to apply for a loan again. You can also opt for our flexible repayment tenure option. You can also read about how EMI is calculated.

  • Insurance

Whenever you take a huge loan amount it’s advisable that you also take an insurance cover too. Finserv MARKETS also offers customized insurance plans to protect your family as well. This would help decrease the burden and stress on your family under unfortunate circumstances. You could go in for insurance that is equal to the loan amount or even a regular term plan insurance which would go on even after your loan is all paid up.
