ABC of Loan Against Property
What is LAP?
Loan against property is a loan which you avail by keeping your
commercial/residential/industrial property as collateral. It is also called a secured loan
as the property owned by the applicant is the security for this loan. The amount of
potential loan will be sanctioned depending upon the value of your property.
LAP is a great option to acquire funds at a lower cost and simultaneously make use of an
idle asset that you already own without the need to sell it off. However, the property
kept as a mortgage for Loan Against Property needs to be free from any legal and
financial issues.
Entrepreneurs avail a loan against a property for several reasons. It can be availed to
expand your business, purchase a new property, renovate an existing property, loan
consolidation, and business or working capital requirement.
The financers, be it a bank or an NBFC, look into your income details, savings,
employment track, and other aspects before coming to disbursement. Your property or
collateral is evaluated according to the current market value and correspondingly, the
loan amount is computed. Getting a loan against property becomes much more
simplified and speedier if you have all the basic documents in place.

What are the essentials of LAP?
 Good financial record:
Before approving a loan, financial institutions check payment-track records and
repayment ability of the applicant. If you have other loans or existing liabilities, your
eligibility for another loan may reduce. Some lenders also take into consideration the
number of dependents in the applicant’s family, as more dependents are considered as
lower repayment capacity.
 Undisputed property:
Also, if the property being offered as collateral is disputed, there are chances that your
loan application will not be accepted. Sometimes a loan request is not accepted if the
property taken as collateral is under dispute or the property papers are not clear about
ownership.

 The property value
Whether you intend to apply for a loan against property on the
residential/commercial/industrial property, you should know the monetary worth of
the concerned estate. The sanctioned loan amount cannot exceed the property’s value.
But you can get up to 70% of the property’s market value as a loan. If your loan
requirement is higher than the property’ value, you will need to consider other
financing options in combination. In this case, however, you may be eligible for a lower
loan amount.
