On approval of the housing loan, a sanction letter detailing the loan amount, tenure, applicable interest rate, repayment mode and other special conditions required to be fulfilled by the applicants is issued.

Disbursement Process: The home loan disbursement process begins with submitting the original property related documents to HDFC Bank. In case the property is an under-construction property, disbursement is done in tranches according to the construction linked payment plan provided by the developer. In the case of construction/home improvement/home extension loans, disbursement is done as per the progress of construction/improvement as per the estimate provided. For second sale / resale properties the complete loan amount is disbursed at the time of execution of a sale deed.
 

Repayment of Home Loan

In the case of loans for resale homes, EMI begins from the month subsequent to the month in which disbursement of the loan is done. In the case of loans for under-construction properties, EMI usually begins once the construction is complete and the house loan is fully disbursed.
