Land and housing are valuable assets, and as an owner, you can choose to seek a bank loan by using the property as a collateral. A ‘collateral’ is a valuable asset that a borrower offers as an assurance against which they can secure a loan. If you are unable to repay the money, you may lose ownership over the asset which you have offered as a collateral to the lender. For the lender, the collateral acts as a safety net.
When seeking a bank loan (business, education etc), especially when it is for a higher amount, banks require individuals to offer some asset as collateral for security. For this purpose, you can offer either self-occupied residential or commercial property. You will be required to provide proof of ownership in the form of title deeds at the time of registering for a loan. The banks decide the credibility and the value of the land / house being offered as a collateral against the requested amount for the loan. Generally, the chances of approval are high when using a land or housing property as collateral.0
