Benefits of joint home loan

If you apply for a joint home loan with your wife, then the biggest advantage is that depending on the income and credit score of both of you, you get the desired amount as loan at a good interest rate. 

At the same time, one of its advantages is that in case of home loan, both the people can claim income tax benefit under Section 80C. Both applicants can avail the benefit of Rs 2 lakh on interest and Rs 5 lakh on principal.

Lower interest rates for female applicants

If you include a woman applicant in your joint home loan application, you get different benefits. Let us tell you that banks provide loans at low interest rates to women home loan applicants. 

This rate is approximately 0.05 percent i.e. 5 basis points less than the normal home loan rate. In this way, you can also take advantage of lower interest rates by applying for home loan as a female applicant.

The burden of paying EMI will not fall on anyone

Let us tell you that if you take a joint home loan, no one person will have to bear the burden of repaying it. Because this will link the bank accounts of both the applicants so that no EMI will be missed. 

But for this you have to keep in mind that before the EMI date, there should be enough money in either of the two bank accounts to pay the installment. If there is no money in both the accounts, your credit score may be affected.
