All documents are submitted to the banks, where the banks take clearance from the Bangladesh Bank on pending loans which is called a Credit Information Report (CIB). The CIB details any outstanding loans the person has or any default the person has made in terms of loan payments. The banks also investigate whether the property that is to be secured by the new mortgage has been secured for other loans, which has still not been paid off.

As part of the home loan application, loan repayments can be made in the form of monthly instalments. Borrowers typically have the option of different repayment periods between 5 and 25 years, depending on their initial deposit and financial situation.

Types of home loans in Bangladesh

As discussed previously in this article, there are different home loans for different purposes in Bangladesh. The real estate sector is growing fast because of these different home loan schemes offered by bank or financial institution. Below, we discuss the different types of loans offered in the Bangladesh market.

Standard Home Loan

In Bangladesh, regardless of whether the home is new or old, the home loan is the most widely used type of loan. A typical or standard home loan is a type of loan, where a bank or financial institution lends money to a borrower who pays interest and principal for the life of the loan. The bank or financial institution uses the new or existing home as collateral or security as protection in case the borrower cannot pay the loan back.

In other words, if the borrower defaults on the home loan, the lender (e.g. bank) can take possession and ownership of the home. Standard home loan are provided by the major banks and non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) in Bangladesh. The typical repayment period is usually up to 25 years and the banks and NBFI usually offer financing up to 70% to 80% of the property value.

Home Construction Loan

A home construction loan is a type of loan that a borrower out to fund the construction of a new home such as a new apartment or house. According to the lender, the bank or financial institution will have offer different interest rates depending on the perceived construction or building risk the lender determines.

Some lenders may provide the flexibility for the borrower to draw down on the home loan construction loan in phases or instalments, which may save the borrower substantial amount of interest payments given that the full loan isn’t being charged interest on day one while the property is being built or developed.

Land Purchase Loan

A land purchase loan is simple a type of home loan agreement where a loan is secured by the land the borrower purchases. Similar to a standard home loan (discussed above), if the borrower defaults on the land purchase loan, the lender (e.g. bank) can take ownership of the land. This kind of home loan is generally provided by the major banks and non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) in Bangladesh.

Home Extension Loan

A home extension loan is generally offered by the banks and financial institutions (NBFIs) in Bangladesh and is used by borrowers to obtain funding to extend their home. For example, the home loan borrower may like to expand the home by adding a new floor, room, bathroom or balcony to the existing property. A home extension loan can be a cost effective way for a home owner to borrow funds to extend their property given that the loan size isn’t as large as taking out a new home purchase loan.

Home Improvement Loan

As the name suggests, a home improvement loan is a loan taken to improve a property owner’s existing property. For example, the home loan borrower may like to improve their existing property for interior renovations like upgrading the kitchen, bathrooms and design of the home. The loan amount and time to pay-off the home improvement loan is generally less than new construction loans.
