What is a home loan?

A home loan is availed by borrowers from a bank at a certain rate of interest and must be repaid within a fixed tenure. Home loan is repaid in EMIs. The property is taken as collateral for the home loan. When the borrower cannot pay the dues, the lender possesses all the legal rights to recover the outstanding loan amounts by sale of the property in question.

Types of Home Loan frauds by financial lenders

A new generation of scammers has come up with innovative ideas to con people.

Mis-selling products by banks: Usually, when you avail a loan from banks, the terms and conditions are recorded in the loan application. In the loan sanction letter, the bank writes or prints the mutually agreed rates. However, banks may deviate from mutually agreed rates and place new rates.

Not informing the customer on the lock-in period: There is a certain lock-in period on loans. Sometimes, banks or NBFCs do not inform customers on the same. Many banks do not offer pre-payment facility on home loans.

Pushing for other investments: Loan agents try to push other products like ULIPs and endowment policies. These products have high premiums and offer low mortality cover. The agents push for these products, just to pocket commissions.

Not disclosing important terms and conditions: The terms and conditions of loans vary across banks. You may not notice banks including hidden charges or fees in the loan agreement.

Through calling: You may receive calls from banks on home loans or credit cards. Do not opt for any product without knowing details.

Don't get cheated by online fraudsters:

There are certain steps that can be taken to remain safe and stop getting cheated by online scammers. The steps are mentioned below:

  • Check the site: There are a number of online loan aggregators who offer home loans. Make sure to check the URL on the site of the loan aggregator. While applying for a loan online, confirm that you are on an encrypted page. Look for a padlock to the left of your pages URL, which should start with “https,” indicating a secure site. If you don’t see this, the site you are on may not be legitimate.
  • Check ratings: If you have picked an established site, opt for product assurance services. If you don’t wish to get cheated by the loan companies, make sure to go through buyer reviews and ratings on the seller to check his reputation. Look if the finance provider addresses customer grievances or neglects them. 
  • Secure payment: Opt for online wallets or payment services like PaisaPay in eBay, which ensures that the lender is not paid by the site till the loan is sanctioned and you receive the amount borrowed in your account. This helps in safeguarding money against online scammers. Do not pay via electronic bank transfers, as it is difficult to retrieve money. Opt for payment via credit cards that have a low credit limit and are used exclusively for online payments.
