Loan Against Property and Overdraft Loan are popular terms in the mortgage sector, but their meaning and functionality can often confuse prospective borrowers. Here are what both loan types mean:

  • Loan Against Property: This loan type facilitates the sanction of a large sum against a pledged collateral, which in this case is an immovable asset, namely a property you own.
  • Overdraft Loan: An overdraft loan allows you to borrow from your account even in the advent of a zero-balance situation. Above that, borrowers have to pay interest only on the amount used by them.

Now that the meaning of a vanilla overdraft loan is clear, you will understand what the overdraft facility on a Loan Against Property means.

When the Overdraft Loan Against Property facility is extended to you, you are essentially allowed to access the sanction amount in slabs, as per your need and convenience. Your lender opens a separate overdraft account in which the loan amount is disbursed in parts, upon your preference.

Another notable feature of operating an Overdraft Loan Against Property is that you can make any number of deposits back into the loan account; be it above your monthly EMI, and it counts as prepayment. However, the most important aspect of this credit facility is that you pay interest only on the portion of the loan amount that you’ve requested and use, unlike the regular Loan Against Property.

Features and Benefits of an Overdraft Loan Against Property

Guarantees Liquidity

Borrowers do not have to worry about facing a cash crunch, as they can withdraw from their predetermined loan sanction whenever they please, depending on when an expense arises.

Feature Image

Higher Interest Savings

Borrowers don’t have to pay blanket interest on the entire loan sum sanctioned to them. As they can seek the loan sum in parts, they pay interest only the amount they have used and not overall.

No Part-Prepayment Charges

When borrowers repay the amount borrowed through the overdraft credit line, they don’t have to bear additional part-prepayment charges. Borrowers can make as many payments towards the borrowed loan sum, directly reducing their repayment amount.

With the function and role of both loan types clearly defined, what remains are the key differences between a Loan Against Property and an Overdraft Loan Against Property. Understanding their unique offerings will help you select the right loan type to meet your needs.
