Loan Against Residential Property
Loan Against Property, is also known as mortgage loan. This is one of the types of a secured loan as collateral is involved. This means if you need this loan, you will have to hold your property as mortgage with the bank. Any property whether it is commercial or residential, can be used in order to get a loan against property.
The main highlight of the loan against property is that you can get 40-65%* of the property value as the loan amount. Hence if you happen to have more than one property under your name, you can keep the costlier property as collateral. This will help you get a higher loan amount. The lender will evaluate your property and finalize the market value for it. On the basis of that value, you will get the loan amount.
LAP (Loan against Property) can be processed against a Residential property that is already on borrower’s name. LAP is taken for both the personal and business usage. In this case, the mortgaged security is already owned by the borrower.
LAP can be issued in any of the following scenario :

- Higher studies loan for son or daughter.
- Medical treatment fund.
