Factors that influence the interest rates on UCO Bank Home Loans

The interest rate on a home loan from UCO Bank can vary from borrower to borrower based on their eligibility criteria. Following are some of the factors that can influence the interest rate on your home loans.

Type of Interest :

UCO Bank provides the option of floating rates and fixed rate. Floating rate is bound to change as per market conditions. A fixed rate doesn’t change throughout the loan tenure. Banks offers additional benefits and offers for floating rates.

A good credit score gets you a better terms on your home loans. Banks prefer an individual with a good credit score. It ensures that you are approved for a higher loan amount and a lower rate of interest. Any credit score of 750 and above is considered a good credit score. With the consistent repayment on your existing loans and credit card bills, you can build a good credit score.
