Detailed features of the insurance policy are given in the policy documents provided by the insurer.
10. Disbursement of the loan shall commence after:

  • Submission of all relevant documents as mentioned by HomeFirst in the sanction letter/loan agreement
  • Payment of own contribution by the Borrower (total cost of flat less the loan amount), as specified in the sanction letter

11. Repayment of the loan will start during the construction phase:

  1. “Floating Rate of Interest” means the rate of Interest applicable on the loan, which is linked to the prime lending rate of Home First Finance Company (HomeFirst-PLR) and is subject to review by HomeFirst based on the prevailing lending rate in the market and the continuous assessment of credit worthiness of borrower indicated by a “risk rating”. The difference between the HomeFirst-PLR and the floating rate of interest on your loan is called “spread” or “offset”.
  2. HomeFirst-PLR is dependent on the interest rates prevailing in the market, and may therefore increase or decrease depending on prevailing interest rates in the market. HomeFirst-PLR shall be updated on www.homefirstindia.com (“Website”) for your information. If there are any changes that impact the interest rate of your loan, it will be informed to you in writing prior to the month of taking effect.
  3. HomeFirst will charge interest called as pre-equated monthly installments or “PRE-EMI interest” (PEMII) only on the amount disbursed as loan at such time.
    For instance, if the total loan amount sanctioned is ₹10 lakhs, but the amount disbursed is only ₹4 lakhs, Pre-EMI interest will be charged on ₹4 lakhs only.
  4. Payment of equated monthly installments (EMI) shall commence after the loan amount is completely disbursed. The EMI will comprise of the principal repayment and the interest calculated on the outstanding principal. Interest shall be calculated on a monthly reducing basis.
  5. PEMIIs and EMIs may be repaid through post-dated cheques (PDCs), electronic transfer (NEFT) or the electronic clearing service (ECS) method, by the 4th day of every month.

12. Recovery of Over Dues:

  1. “Additional Interest” shall be charged on delay in payment of the EMI or PEMII or any other amounts due to HomeFirst beyond the specified due dates. Additional interest will be charged at the prevailing fixed/floating interest rate from the due date until payment is made to HomeFirst on the amount that is overdue. Additional Interest shall be payable in the event the payments are delayed beyond a further grace period of seven (7) days from the Due Date of Borrower’s Due.
    For e.g., if a Pre-EMI payment is made on 14th instead of the due date (4th), Additional Interest will be charged on the Pre-EMI amount for the period of 10 days at the same rate of interest that is applicable on the loan.
  2. On occurrence of any event of default as mentioned in the loan Agreement (“Event of Default”), all outstanding amounts owed by the Borrower to HomeFirst shall become payable forthwith & HomeFirst reserves the right to undertake all such necessary processes to enforce its rights under the loan agreement.
  3. “Default Penalty” will be charged on the occurrence of any Event of Default on the Borrower’s dues as defined in the loan agreement. Default penalty will be charged at 2% p.a (compounded monthly) from the date of occurrence of the Event of Default till the date of resolution.
    For e.g., if an EMI is paid 40 days after the due date, Default Penalty will be charged at the rate of 2% p.a (compounded monthly) on the Total Dues (Principal Outstanding plus interest / charges/ fees etc.) for a period of 40 days.

13.HomeFirst will issue an annual outstanding statement reflecting your repayments and current outstanding as at 31st March every year on or before 31st May.
