Application Form

The appraisal process begins with an application form. An application form is designed to collect all relevant information that a lender needs, to decide whether prima facie the loan exposure would be an acceptable risk and falls within the policy parameters of the bank. This is a first step preceding other processes. Housing loans are generally sanctioned against the security of immovable properties viz., land and building. Again, this is a personal segment loan and the source of repayment of these loans come from the existing income of the borrower/s. Therefore, banks need to gather full particulars of:

  • The land and building.
  • Existing income and the source of it. How long this income is expected to continue.
  • Existing liability, if any, and monthly financial repayment obligation on the proposed loansam other things.

Power Of Attorney

This act may be called as “POWER OF ATTORNEY ACT, 1882”, which was passed in the year 1882 on 24th feb and the act came into force on first day of May, 1882. This act applies to the whole of India. The main aim of passing this statute is to make it easy for your designated attorney to access your finances and, in that way, take care of your property.

Power Of Attorney’ is an authority given by an instrument by one person, called as the donor or principal, authorising another person, called donee or agent to act on his behalf. There may be possibility of giving ‘Power Of Attorney’ by two or more persons jointly to one or more persons. Here a legal authority is given by the principal to the agent which may be broad or limited and an agent can take all necessary decisions i.e. financial, property related matters and all other matters where principal cannot be present to sign or in the case of principal’s illness and disability. A paper signed by principal giving powers to an agent is sometimes itself called a power of attorney. A paper giving a power of attorney should be clear and understandable.

Appraisal of Loan Request

The appraisal comprises a validation of the information submitted by the applicant, collected by the various credit verification agencies, property appraisers, bank’s solicitors, etc. In the process of validation, the information is checked against the bank’s policy, budgetary guidelines, risk management practices any negative list, etc.
