Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a home loan balance transfer?

    The process of transferring the existing principal loan amount on your new house to a new bank is called a home loan balance transfer. It is a way of reducing interest rate payments. Balance transfers are recommended during the early years of your home loan tenure if your lender’s interest rate is comparatively higher than others in the market. You can also do a balance transfer to shift between floating and fixed interest rates and get a higher amount with a loan top up.

  • What are the advantages of a home loan balance transfer?

    If you have been regular in your EMI payments and maintain good records with your lender, you stand a chance of resuming your EMI payments with a new bank at a lower interest rate. You also have the added advantage of taking a loan top up, which is an additional loan amount the new bank will offer which can increase your tenure.

  • Is it possible to merge more than two loans?

    Yes, with the home loan balance transferred to a new bank, you can combine your other home loan installments as one to avail the benefits of lower interest with the new bank.

  • How long does a home loan balance transfer take?

    The lender will have to assess your eligibility again, so the process duration usually ranges from 7 days to 3 weeks.

  • What is the balance transfer process?

    The process for transferring balance is simple:

    • Request your current lender for the documents to refinance the loan.
    • Get the consent letter and document from the present lender and submit them to the new lender.
    • Transfer of the outstanding amount to the new lender.
    • Closure of the old account. Future payments will be made to the new lender.
    • The old lender will hand property documents to the new lender, which marks the end of the process.
