Home Loan Processing Fees

Processing fee- an important factor you need to consider before applying for home loan

Buying a home is a tedious and a strenuous process; since most of the home purchase is backed by a home loan, a lot of research goes in finding the right loan which matches your requirement and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. Despite all the active effort from your end, many of you miss the other costs we bear during the process of home loan application and sanctioning. These charges play an important role while deciding the bank or HFC from where you want to avail the home loan.  One of the most important charges that top the list of charges is the processing fee.


What is processing fee?

Banks and HFCs charge a service fee for processing the home loan application. During the process of loan sanctioning, bank involves lawyers and property evaluators. There are others fees apart from processing fee that bank charges the likes documentation charges, stamp duty etc.  An important point to note here is that the processing fee is non-refundable even if the loan gets rejected. Another noteworthy point is that the processing fee varies from one bank to another.

What you should know about processing fee?

Processing Fee is paid to the bank or any NBFC when you avail a home loan. Also it is important to note that if you want to get the new customer interest rate, you can pay the processing fees and convert your prevailing interest rate to the new borrower interest rate.
