One of the most relevant document in recent time to evaluate home loan repayment risk is individual’s credit score. Most lender pulls credit report and the underwriting team analyse the financial records as listed in the report before granting home loan approval. Higher the credit ranking and above the approved limit means high probability to get home loan. Credit score or ranking is given by several credit rating agencies like CIBIL, CRIF Highmark and others. Rating or score is a calculated by the bureau by evaluating the financial history like number of bank accounts, loan taken in past, number of credit cards, payment tracks of cards and loans outstanding, all accounts open or closed are included, any default or settlements are negative scoring, timely payments and credit limit are positive scoring and several other computations. Earlier each bureau use its own scoring logic and rating scales, now the process is more or less standardise with scale of 0-900. It’s important to know your credit score. It is possible that borrower might not have a score as they have never taken a loan or card earlier, this doesn’t mean that they will not get a loan.
