Employers Details: If you are not working in Government or reputed private company, you need to provide details of your employment. You need to provide brief information about the nature of your employer, business activity, financial status, turnover, profit, major customers, number of employees etc.

Personal discussions

This process can be compared with written test. If your answer sheet that is application form is found to be satisfactory in all aspects, you may be called for oral interview in the form of personal discussion. Typically banks take anything from 10 days to 30 days to evaluate your application. The aim of the personal discussion is to gather more details about you, which may not be mentioned in the application. So you are required to keep all the relevant documents along with you, while going for personal discussion.

Field Investigation

Banks never go blindly. The bank verifies all the information submitted by you including your residential address, place of employment, employer credentials, residential and work telephone numbers. Normally, this verification process will be outsourced to the specialized agencies.

Credit Appraisal And Loan Sanction

This stage will set for deal or no deal. If the banker is satisfied with your application and credentials, rest assured, you will be getting a home loan to buy residential property in Hyderabad. The banker then issues a Home Loan Sanction Letter. Sanction letter may either be an unconditional one, or may have certain terms and conditions, which you have to fulfill before the loan amount is disbursed.

Home Loan Offer Letter

Home Loan Sanction or Home Loan Offer Letter contains the following details. Loan amount rate of Interest, type (Whether fixed or floating), if the rate is floating then the reference rate, periodicity of the rate revising, tenure, mode of repayment etc.

Acceptance Copy:

If you agree with the details mentioned in the home loan offer letter, you will have to sign a duplicate letter of the same for the bank’s records. Never sign on dotted line without verifying the details like the rate of interest, loan amount on the offer letter is the same that was discussed and mutually agreed upon.

Legal Scrutiny

Bank checks thoroughly all the documents submitted by you. This is to validate their authenticity. Even the Agreement of Sale you will be entering into with your seller will also be scrutinized thoroughly. For this scrutiny, every bank will have a panel of legal experts. Scrutiny job will be entrusted to one of the members in the panel. Some banks may have in-house legal experts. Even if you pass the financial acid test, unless you cross this hurdle, loan may not be disbursed. If the document found is clear in all aspects, the lawyer will give a go ahead. Sometimes legal expert may call for additional documents.

Submission Of Property Documents

You are required to hand over the entire set of original documents pertaining to your property to the bank. Again, if you have chosen a reputed builders property, and the property is approved, this may not be necessary, as the banker would already be in possession of the above said documents. Otherwise, you have to submit all the original documents pertaining to the proposed property. Which normally includes documents, link documents related to the land, sanctioned plan, building plan, architect-structural designers certificate, no objection certificate from the concerned authorities etc.

Technical Evaluation

Banks will send an expert to visit the premises you intend to purchase. Normally this job is done by Civil Engineer or an Architect. Some banks may send senior employees to evaluate the property. The main aim of this evaluation process is to ascertain the quality of construction. If the property is under construction, to determine the stage of construction & to verify the same as that mentioned in the payment notice issued to you by the builder. Banker also tries to confirm layout of flats and area of property is in compliance with permissions granted by the concerning local body.


Banks carry out an independent valuation to determine whether purchase is in line with the existing market price of the area where property exists. Valuation is the key yardstick in determining the loan amount that can be sanctioned by the bank. The valuation issue rarely arises when property in Hyderabad is purchased from a reputed builder and the residential apartment is a pre approved one.

Signing the home loan agreement

You are required to enter in to a tripartite agreement with the builder & banker. You also need to submit post-dated cheques for the first 36 months, if you agree for this mode of repayment. This agreement will contain a condition binding on the builder to handover the documents after the registration.


After the legal scrutiny, technical verification and evaluation, the draft documents after legal clearance from the lawyer need to be registered with the Sub Registrar. Registration fee and relevant charges are to be borne by you.


Bank typically finance up to 75-80% of the property value. That means you have to contribute at least 20-25% of the property value from your own funds. In banking parlance, it is called the Margin. Registration charges and the cost for interior decoration may be considered the part of the property value. Before commencing disbursal, you need to submit documents to prove that you have paid the margin money. Many of you may need to withdraw money from Provident fund. It may take a while to receive money from PF Authorities.

If that is the case, you need to provide sufficient evidence for the same. It is only after submitting this

proof that the bank will release part-disbursement of the loan directly to the builder. So, the cheque will be in the name of the builder.

Usually, loans are disbursed on the basis of the stage of construction of the residential apartment. In case of resale or ready to occupy properties, the disbursement is full and final.

In case of partial disbursal, the bank does not start to deduct Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) immediately. Since, the EMI is calculated on the total loan amount at a particular rate of interest and for a given tenure. Banks charge simple interest on the partly disbursed loan amount. For instance, if you have a sanctioned loan of Rs 25 lakh but the property is under construction and the bank has disbursed only Rs. 10 lakh, you will be charged a simple interest only on the 10 lakh.

This continues until the final disbursement is done. The simple interest paid is called Pre-EMI interest or Pre-EMI. For Pre-EMI payments, banks may take only around six to 24 post-dated cheques.
