Levy of Penalty on Foreclosure of Home Loans

Government, in May 2010, advised Public Sector Banks, Indian Banks’ Association and National Housing Bank that no pre-payment charges may be levied by the lending institutions when the loan amount is paid by the borrowers out of their own funds; and if any pre-payment charges are to be imposed on housing loans, the same need to be reasonable and transparent and not out of line with the average cost of providing these services.

The Public Sector Banks (PSBs) have reported that by and large they do not levy any pre-payment charges when the amount is paid by the borrowers from their own sources.

In general, own funds means funds generated through ‘own sources’ and not through borrowings by any lender. Prepayment of loan by a borrower can take place on account of (i) takeover of his / her loan by other lender, and (ii) out of their own sources. In the first case, the borrower often gets their existing loan refinanced by other lender, if the interest rate offered by other lending institution in the market was lower and attractive.
