Mar 2018 InGreen Homes The non-resident Indians have always shown some deep interest in the Indian real estate market. Similarly, be it the affordable homes or the luxury properties, the realty developers have considered the non-resident Indians as an integral target segment for the pitching the project. The home loan, however, remains the pain point for the non-resident Indians as the formalities as well as documentation which is involved in the process is pretty complicated. Eligibility criteria- • The applicant should be minimum of 18 years of age (this might differ from one bank to another) with some regular income source. The complete income can actually be calculated by clubbing the income of the co-borrowers or guarantors and the expected rental income on the proposed property is actually permitted. • Passport should be valid for the applicant. • Applicant should have actually been employed abroad for minimum 2 years or should be serving the valid job contract for a minimum period of 2 years abroad.

Document required Apart from what is required for the regular home loan, the non-resident Indians require submitting the following mentioned documents to the bank to process the home loan- • Copy of work permit/visa • Copy of relevant pages of the passport • Power of attorney. It is required as the borrower isn't based in India • A driving license that is issued abroad • Utility bills such as telephone, electricity, gas connection, etc. • Original copy of fresh overseas bank account that shows the overseas address • National identity card of the labor card or social card issued by the government at the country of residence

The government banks charge 0.25% of the amount of the loan as the processing fee. There are other charges that would be applicable as well if the loan gets approved but the amount has to be sanctioned yet. These would include • Valuation report charges • Property insurance premium • Stamp duty payable for loan agreement as well as mortgage • Due diligence charges include a fee of advocate and title investigation report Repayment modes As per the RBI regulations, the repayment of the home loan by non-resident Indian should be done by making use of the local currency.
