Understanding the Benefits of Home Loan Balance Transfer

People normally opt for a Home Loan Balance Transfer when they feel they have been paying a higher interest to their current lender as opposed to the market rates. When you opt for a transfer, the new lender pays off the principal balance amount to the old lender. Once the loan is settled with the previous lender, it releases all the documents pertaining to the property and the current lender takes charge of the property documents. After the settlement you start repaying the EMIs to the current lender.

What are the benefits of home loan transfer?     

Lower Interest Rates

The most common and obvious reason for a transfer is lower interest rates. This allows the borrower to save up and may reduce the overall tenure of the home loan.

Good repayment track record may get you good Rate of Interest (ROI) 

While opting for a transfer, if you have had a good repayment record, you can negotiate with the new lender for a lesser rate of interest. You can cite your record by producing your credit score, record of payments etc. making your case stronger.

You can not only apply for the transfer online but later also manage the loan online from the comforts of your home. After signing into the customer portal, you can view details like due EMIs, outstanding principal, loan details etc.

Top-up Loans

When you transfer the loan, certain financial institutions offer you top-up loans. You can take those loans and use it towards your home for either renovating it or re-furnishing it. You can also use for other purposes like your child’s education or a vehicle down-payment etc.

EMI free months

Right after making the transfer, Finserv MARKETS offers 3 months as EMI free months. During these months, you get to enjoy a cool-off period wherein you can arrange your finances before you start paying the EMIs again.


People also change lenders due to lack of quality service. When customer service is sidetracked after sanctioning the loan, people become irate. Borrowers always seek healthy communication with the lender. Not providing adequate information or not communication at all, will push the lender away. Leading him to look for better loan providers or lenders.

Home Loan Balance Transfer should be only done after carefully examining your current situation and analysing the money that you will save. Calculating the internal rate of return is also very crucial. If the outstanding balance in your current loan is too less then there is no point in transferring the loan. In that scenario, while doing the transfer you might end up paying more the current amount or end up paying the same amount. All the pain in getting the transfer done becomes pointless. However, if your loan is just a fresh loan and you are getting a better rate of interest elsewhere. You should weigh the suitable options and go for the transfer. Therefore, do the transfer only after analysing every situation.
