• Joint Loan with Cousin to buy land and build a home.

Hi,

Me and my cousin are from a joint family in UP. We both are currently working in Bangalore and we want to build a family house here. For this, we would like to apply for Joint loan of approximately 1 Crore. We have a down payment of 30 Lacks ready with us.

We would like to buy the land in Bangalore and build a home on it. Please advise if this kind of Joint Loan is possible or if there is any other solution to get this done.

There can be 2 applicants for loan and if the property is purchased in joint names then your brother would be co owner of property. A borrower has the option of having a co-applicant to a loan along with himself. All co-applicants are not co-owners but all co-owners have to necessarily be co-applicants.

If you intend to construct a house in joint names by raising a joint housing loan, then you must buy the property in joint names and both of you must be eligible for raising a housing loan (eligibility very important). Apart from this your capacity to repay the raised loan must also be established, only then banks will consider giving a loan.
Also it is important here in Bangalore that the site where you propose to construct the house must be within corporation limits and the site should be in an approved layout (B.D.A or some housing society) revenue sites or non-converted sites most banks do not fund loans for construction.
consult an advocate after finalizing on the location to get some guidance in this regard.

Yes joint loan is possible. 
If both are able to furnish security and are ready to comply with other necessary formalities in this regard, a joint loan is always possible.  
You may approach a PSU bank or any home finance institution for this purpose.
