Oh, God! it’s a bit frustrating if you are self-employed and don’t have enough downpayment of up to 40%.
You have obtained the documents required for a home loan

- Salary certificate for employees
- 3 years ITR for self-employed they also ask turnover
They verify the Land ownership by taking their lawyer Legal Opinion.
They estimate property Value based on their engineer & other market valuation techniques.
The process takes minimum few weeks or months.
The problem I faced Loan Executive asks for money indirectly delaying.
manger, Executives have their commissions, by reducing interest rates, increasing loan amount and other support for sanctioning.
I tried SBI (Failed at legal opinion)
HDFC >> (loan agent with real estate agent I paid 30,000 for 30 lakhs loan for agent ) real estate agent (i agreed to pay 1% commission) increased 1 lakhs on 50 lakhs property. He took commission my side 50K and builder side 50K and again asking for 50K.
PNB: said you don’t have proper documents and manager asking transfer loan to other banks.
ICICI>> They added high-interest rate they interest depends on persons to person ex: govt employee get a low-interest rate.
whatever I paid to the loan executive not returned back. I lost my mind there. No loan approval from any bank. it took 2-3 months.
