LOAN AGAINST PROPERTY
Loan Against Property (LAP) or mortgage loan is a type of secured loan offered by banks and Housing Finance Companies (HFCs) against commercial or residential property owned by the borrower. The amount, which is availed by keeping the property as collateral till the loan is fully repaid, can be used by the borrower for various purposes like expanding a business, funding children’s education, meeting medical expenses, and more. The maximum loan amount provided under LAP can go up to 70% of the property value. Along with being cost-effective, loans against property are reasonably convenient to avail and repay due to the relatively low mortgage interest rate.
