Points to Consider While Taking the ICICI Extra Home Loan

1. If the home loan borrower opts for the extra home loan, then there is a fee of 1.5%-2.5% for the higher/extra home loan. These fees are usually charged if the customer is self-employed, because the risk is that much higher. These are called the Guarantee fees.

Self Employed: 2.3% of Home Loan amount

Young Salaried Borrower: 2.1% of Home Loan amount

Middle Age Salaried Borrower: 1.53% of Home Loan amount

2. The actual financial impact will vary from case to case depending on the home loan tenure, interest rate, loan amount, EMI, risk profile, income etc. The guarantee fee as a percentage of the extra amount is usually high if the difference between home loan eligibility and the requirement is small. This makes the cost of borrowing very high.

3. ICICI Bank offers a loan to value ratio of 80% as per the RBI guidelines. Hence, even though the home loan offer says that it offers extra home loan, the loan borrower needs to shell out or arrange the 20% of the cost of the home by himself/herself.

4. Stamp duty and registration charges must be arranged from the customer’s own fund sources.
