What to check before taking out a car loan

There is a common consumer behavior to scrutinize every item purchased on the market, whether online or offline. This also becomes important when you are looking for money in the form of a loan. Just the thought that a lender is financing you doesn’t mean that you don’t have the opportunity to discuss all the details in detail before finalizing the agreement.

5 things to remember when taking a car loan

Loan amountA: The first thing you need to consider is the amount you need as a loan to buy a car. The lower the amount, the lower the tenure and EMI will be, as long as your availability is not affected.

Interest rateA: Compare the interest rate across all types of lenders to get a deal that suits your requirements and pay less interest.

AMYA: This is extremely important as you also need to manage other daily expenses. Fixing EMI by balancing other needs should be a well thought out task prior to completing a loan application.

Credit termA: When you evaluate the amount of the loan, you must also consider the term of the loan. At lower EMIs, less money may be deducted per month, but you end up paying more interest. Therefore, a less term loan is preferred by many.

Interest type– Fixed, floating or mixed rate car loans. In a fixed rate loan, the interest rate is fixed at the time the loan is taken. On the other hand, the floating rate or adjustable rate is linked to the lender’s base rate, which in turn changes in sync with the market interest rate and the RBI.

What else to check

PrepaymentA: Be aware of fees, restrictions, and other restrictions. Read the documents carefully to understand the fees and early repayment/foreclosure options on your auto loan.

One-time commission: check if there is a fee for processing a loan application.

CIBIL rating– Banks and other lenders check your CIBIL Score before a loan is approved. Lenders will consider your credit score when approving a car loan application.

Documentation: Check what types of documents the lender is requesting. Make sure you keep them ready for a smooth processing of your loan application.

Even after you complete the repayment/closure of the car loan, remember to take a detailed loan closure report, a no-objection certificate, and a repayment statement.
