Pendency of a 498A or maintenance case does not place an embargo on your right to apply for home loan. It is for the concerned bank/financial institution to decide whether you fulfill the eligibility criteria.

1. Home loan means buying a new property.
2. Since your wife is on the litigation process then more cases like one under PWDV Act is very much on the offing.
3.Once it happens then your new property may get acctahed or injunction order can be passed or even your wife may be directed to enter this house.
4. So act judiciously.

1. You can buy the property to show your less net income for paying her the maintenance amount,

2. However, if she files a petition for seperate accomodation stating that you already have a seperate accomodation then the Court may direct you to provide her the accomodation in the said flat,

3. In that case she will stay in the flat fotr which you will pay the EMIs,

4. So, find some other way since this is a risky proposal.
