Introduction

L&T Housing Finance Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of L&T Finance Holding Limited registered as a Housing Finance Company with National Housing Bank. Their foray into the home loan business is a natural progression of the company having been one of the infrastructure construction giants in the country.

As a Housing Finance Company, they offer an ample bouquet of Home Loan products designed to cater to every stratum of society. The key takeaway of the home loan products are:

  • Maximum loan amount of Rs.10C
  • Low-interest rates in both fixed and floating pattern

To any borrower the cost of capital is a major concern. The primary determinant of the cost is the rate of interest.

L&T HFL Home Loan Interest Rates

Interest Rates are as of 2019

It is important to emphasize that  L&T HFL offers the home loan borrower both the options of fixed and floating rates of interest.

L&T HFL Home Loan Interest Rates 2019
RPLR 17.35%
Home Loan 9.90% to 10.75% per annum

 

The feature of the interest regime followed by L&T HFL needs elaboration.

  • The floating rate for the home loan is associated with their Retail Prime Lending Rate (RPLR).
  • From time to time the rate is subject to change depending on the market forces.
  • The PLR changes according to the rates declared by the RBI from time to time.

 

While discussing the type of interest regime, it is worthwhile to familiarize with how the rates are worked out.

  • When the lowest rate is 9.90%: It works out by giving a discount of 6.45% over the current RPLR of 17.35%
  • When the RPLR is 17.20%: If the RPLR is reduced by  0.15%, the rate of interest will also get reduced by like percentage and the lowest rate will work out to 9.75%.

 

One must also know what impacts the rate of interest applied in LTHFL Home Loans.  The key features on which the rate actually depends are:

  • Amount of Loan: The principle applied for the loan amount is higher the amount, lower the rate.
  • Your Income: Whether you are salaried or self-employed, your disposable income is reckoned. Higher the income, lower the rate.
  • Existing Customers: The old loyal customers are offered the lowest rates of interest.

 

Another factor that is considered for arriving at the cost of capital to you is the various charges that are applied upfront.

L&T HFL Home Loan Types

LTHFL bouquet of home loan caters to all purposes for which a home loan is sought.

Main Home Loan by Bank

If you have to designate any one scheme as the main home loan in LTHFL, it will be an exercise in futility. Each has a unique flavor and needs a look up individually. Accordingly, find out what they mean.

 

Home Construction Loan

If you already own a plot of land received out of an inheritance, gift or have purchased it in the past. And you now propose to construct a house over it, this is the ideal solution. All the generic features applicable to the LTHFL Home Loan are applicable to this scheme.

 

Home Purchase

The canvas for this scheme is wider.

  • If you intend to purchase a new ready to occupy house or flat;
  • If you are keen on a residence that on re-sale now;
  • Or you are looking for your dream house that is still under construction,

The wide possible choice is designed to match your personal preference.

 

Home Improvement

Every house needs a make-over periodically. There may be need to augment its features with the passage of time.

This loan offers you the option of using the loan amount for restoration, renovation, furnishing and maintenance of your cherished residence.

 

Home Extension

It is natural that over the years the contours of your family will change. You may need to augment the accommodation capacity by adding more space like rooms, kitchen, washrooms or even a floor. This loan will be the right choice for such a need.

 

Balance Transfer

You normally consider balance transfer of your existing home loan with others to meet your convenience both in a better deal and or location.

However, it should match with LTHFL policies. The bonus is that you become eligible for a top-up loan once your transfer goes through.

 

Composite Home Loan

This home loan is an ideal solution if you are looking to buy a plot and then construct your house on it. Through this scheme LTHFL offers to refinance the cost of the plot on commencement of construction on receipt of a sanctioned plan for the building.

The catch is that the construction has to be completed within the specified time limit.

 

Low Loan to Value (LTV)

It is ideal for the affordable home loan customer segment falling under the purview of the CLSS program of the Government of India. It is also suitable if you fall into the cash-intensive business segment.

 

Balance Transfer Plus Top Up

This loan is offered only to the self-employed, both in the professional and non-professional category with regular income, who have their existing housing loan in approved financial institutions.

L&T HFL Home Loan for NRI or PIO

These prospective borrowers form a niche segment for a home loan. Their creditworthiness is undeniable due to the hard currency of their income.

However, as of now LTHFL does not offer any specific home loan scheme for them and their schemes on offer are for resident Indians only.

 

LTHFL Housing Loan for High-net-worth Individuals

In the absence of any clear cut definition of who actually fall in the category of the high-net-worth individuals, you may consider them to be endowed with extreme liquid assets as compared to their liabilities. In other words, they have a disposable income in their hands to own a residence of choice.

The wide array of schemes offered at LTHFL is all eminently suited for this niche customer base which can make an overall impact on the home loan portfolio. There are a few inherent advantages in these customers as they are likely to propose high-cost projects and repay the loan in the shortest possible tenure.

On the flip side, LTHFL are free from worry about the health of the credit by the expected flawless repayment schedule.

In spite of this, LTHFL does not offer any special scheme for this segment.

Loan eligibility amount under this loan scheme:

As discussed, all LTHFL schemes eminently match the requirements of the high-net-worth individuals. The quantum of the loan being dependent on several factors, of which income is the primary, they can safely quote the upper limit of Home Loan as Rs.10C.

 

LTHFL Home loan For NRI

All LTHFL home loan schemes have the eligibility criterion of resident Indians only. Thereby, the NRIs are not within the purview to seek their home loans. And further, LTHFL does not have as of today, any home loan scheme exclusively designed for them.

How to Apply for L&T HFL Home Loan
