A home loan application will have two applicants in which most of the people feel and believe that co-applicant is not liable of repayment when only applicant income is considered. A co-applicant is equally liable as applicant even his/her income is considered or not. Now lets see the cases when the interest rates are going up, in this case a customer can opt for Fixed Rate of Interest by paying switching fee from Floating to fixed which can save considerable amount to customer. Banks will increase the tenure initially when there is a change in interest rates and when the repayment period crosses 300 months then banks increase the EMI. Customers can opt for increase in EMI amount at any point during the tenure which in turn reduces the repayment period thus reducing the interest paid to bank.

All banks/financial institutions offer Home loan linked life insurance with one time premium which cover the applicant’s life again the home loan. If any risk occurs to the applicant then the complete loan will be cleared by the insurance company and the documents will be released to co-applicant. All the customers are suggested to opt for Home loan linked insurance which is a cover in difficult situations.
