Home Loan Fees and Additional Charges
Depending on the loan type you are applying for, a few charges may be levied. They are mentioned below:
Processing fees: This is a one-time fee that is to be paid to the home loan provider after the loan application has been approved. The processing charge is dependent on the bank and the loan scheme you are applying for, the process charge thus is a variable metric. This fee is non-refundable.
Prepayment charges: This is the fee or the penalty you will have to pay the lender, should you plan to repay your home loan before the completion of the tenure of the loan.
Conversion fees: Some banks might also charge a small conversion fee if and when you decide to switch to a different loan scheme or even a different loan provider in order to decrease the interest rate associated with your current scheme.
Cheque dishonor charges: This type of fee is levied when the loan provider, like the Bank or NBFC, is provided that a cheque issued by the borrower is found to be dishonored due to reasons such as insufficient funds in the borrower’s account.
Home insurance: One of the best ways to protect the home is to insure it. The premium of this insurance should be paid directly to the concerned company during the insurance term to make sure that the insurance policy is running during the home loan tenure.
Default charges: Loan providers also charge a penalty on delayed or missed repayments i.e., if you do not make your Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) or Pre-EMIs on time. But these types of defaulting charges vary from one bank to another.
Incidental charges: These charges cover for the expenses and costs incurred by the bank to recover dues from a borrower who has failed to make his monthly instalments on time.
Statutory/regulatory charges: The fee might include all the expenses associated with the Central Registry of Securitization Asset Reconstruction and Security Interest of India (CERSAI), Memorandum of Entry and Deposit, and also stamp duty. You can visit the CERSAI’s official website to know more about these charges.
Photocopy of documents: The fee is paid to the bank if you need a photocopy of your home loan documents for any personal needs.
Change in loan term: Some banks also charge a nominal fee if you intend on changing the tenure of your loan.
