For the bank to approve your loan, it takes various factors into consideration like the applicant’s age, net monthly income, the total value of the property involved, applicant’s CIBIL score and the ratio of applicant’s fixed obligation to his income.

 

Eligibility Based on Age

The loan tenure and the interest rate depends on the applicant’s job tenure, i.e. the years for which the applicant has employment. The applicant’s age serves as an important significant factor when it comes to availing a home loan. The bank determines the applicant’s eligibility for home loans based on his or her age. ICICI bank has a fixed parameter for minimum and maximum age of the applicants. Lower the age of the applicant, as per the bank’s parameters, larger are his or her chances to avail a home loan. This is because the applicant has a longer tenure to repay his or her loan. The applicant must be a minimum 21 years of age in case of a salaried employee and 25 years of age in case of self-employed to avail a home loan. The maximum age of the applicant at the time of loan termination or retirement must be 65 years. The maximum tenure of loan repayment at ICICI Bank for home loans is 30 years.

 

Eligibility Based on Income

The net monthly salary that the applicant draws is the most significant factor when it comes to availing a home loan.Net monthly salary is the amount that the person receives in-hand after the deductions like PF, ESI, gratuity, taxes, etc. The amount the applicant receives in hand will determine his loan repayment capacity.

You can infer from the example mentioned above that if the applicant draws a higher net monthly salary, the loan amount he or she will be eligible for is higher and vice-versa. If the applicant needs to avail more funds, he or she can also opt for adding another co-applicant for the home loan. This will increase the net monthly salary amount considered by the bank.

 

Eligibility Based on Value of the Property

According to their banking policies, ICICI Bank does not provide a home loan equivalent to the full value of the property. ICICI Bank has certain parameters for providing home loans against the value of property in accord with their LTV (Loan to Value) ratio. The LTV depends on the total value of the property. If the property in question is valued less than INR 30 LAKH, ICICI Bank will provide a loan by 90 %LTV. If the value of the property ranges from INR 30 LAKH to INR 70 LAKH, ICICI Bank will provide home loans at 80%LTV. If the property is valued at more than INR 80 LAKH, ICICI Bank will provide a loan at 75%LTV.

 

Eligibility Based on CIBIL score

CIBIL score is another significant aspect that determines the eligibility of an applicant for a home loan. The CIBIL score helps in demonstrating the applicants past overall credit behavior and credit track record. If the applicants CIBIL score is high, his or her chances of availing a home loan are significantly high. Similarly, if the applicant’s CIBIL score is low, his or her chances of availing a home loan reduce significantly.

 

Eligibility Based on FOIR (Fixed Obligation to Income Ratio)

FOIR is another significant parameter that ICICI bank takes into consideration while providing a home loan. FOIR is your fixed obligation to your monthly income, like your current EMIs if you have any. Minimum FOIR required to be eligible for a home loan at ICIC Bank is 0.65.
