10 Reasons Why Your Home Loan Got Rejected!


Home Loan plays an important role in helping one finance and buy their dream home. You may want to buy a new home or construct one from the scratch, applying for a home loan has a few formalities starting from submitting application to disbursement of loan amount. Keeping basic documents in hand ready saves time and efforts. More often than not new loan applicants are unaware of the complications involved in filing a loan application as several papers and formalities need to be fulfilled. It is usually difficult to get all the details right the first time.

Here are the top 10 reasons due to which your loan application could get rejected

1) Your address is on the defaulter’s list

esidential address

So you have shifted to a new rented house where someone who hasn’t paid up on a loan or has exorbitant credit card dues and this address is in their records. All banks will probably have the address stored in their defaulters’ database. In this case, there is a high probability of your application being rejected.

2 ) Do you have unpaid dues? 



The ghosts from your past can come to haunt you! Accumulating credit card dues, late EMI payments, can all be a major reason for loan rejection. The only option to overcome this issue is to make all your payments on time and not skipping deadlines. To avoid any problems, keep a check on your bills and credit repayments.

3) Do you already have other debts ?

Blog article Icons_income and debt

If you are juggling with too many debts, then your income minus the ongoing credit repayments is what will be considered as your real income. If availing for another loan will make it difficult for you to repay, then your loan will be rejected.

4) Have you been a loan guarantor to a defaulter ? 

loan guarantor

When you sign the dotted line to be someone’s loan guarantor, you should make sure that the applicant has the ability to repay the loan. Unless you have strong reasons to believe in them, do not rush to sign because if they fail to repay, you will be responsible to repay the loan on their behalf.

5) Would your age be a concern ?

old age

If you are nearing retirement age, then banks would be hesitant in giving loans as you will have no repayment capacity after a few years. A few may be ready to offer short term loans up to the date of retirement. But, short term loans for huge amounts would shoot up the EMI, making it a heavy burden on the borrower. Hence, banks are likely to reject home loan applications.

6) Have you jumped too many jobs ?

Blog article Icons_Job jumping

You may not realize it, but being a frequent job hopper can reflect poorly on your loan application. Banks place a lot of importance on job stability so insist that an applicant must be employed with a particular organization for three years or more to be eligible for a home loan. In some cases where a reputed company’s future appears unstable, the bank can reserve its right to provide loan to an applicant from that company. Thus job stability is an important factor considered by banks while giving loans.

7) Has your loan application rejected before ?


When your loan application gets rejected, it gets recorded in your CIBIL credit score. So wait till you receive an offer from one bank before applying to another. This will give you a chance to rectify the errors in your application before you approach another lender.

8) What type of residential property have you placed as security for the loan ?

satisfy policy

Did you know that not all types of residential properties are suitable securities for home loans? Generally, lenders prefer properties that are easy to sell, in demand and have stable prices. So while choosing your property keep in mind that it is not very old and built by an established and trusted builder who has all the necessary documents for easy sanction of your loan. If there is a problem with the title, layout etc., your loan application could get rejected.

9) How good is your credit score ?

credit card

Credit score is a significant deciding factor in sanctioning home loan. Make sure you have a good credit score in place before applying for the loan.Here are a few ways to improve your credit score.

10) Do you file your income tax regularly ?


Ensure you file your income tax returns , irrespective of whether you get Form 16 from your employer or not. It is very important to have a clear track record of tax returns for the past two years before applying for a home loan.

Sneak Peek into the houses of 2 States stars – Arjun, Alia & Chetan


Celebrity lifestyle and their houses have always captured our imagination. The styles and interiors of their homes more often become trend setters for everyone to follow. A glimpse into their homes often makes us wonder where they procure those fabulous show pieces from or what makes a simply arranged room look so elegant and spectacular. Some of us even go to the extent of feeling that it is perhaps their time spent in such beautiful surroundings that rejuvenates them, inspires them and maybe makes them achieve the success they do.

In line with though, the homes of the main crew of recently released block buster – 2 states certainly does justice to capturing one’s imagination.

Inside Arjun Kapoor’s bachelor pad

From having the best gaming zone to a dream come true elaborate bar, Arjun Kapoor’s sprawling bachelor pad has it all. Located in the interiors of Juhu, Mumbai Arjun Kapoor’s not-so modest abode is designed completely by his mom and his sister. Walls of his house are filled with paintings which he claims were his mom’s passion and he says that she is the one who is responsible for all the interior decoration. He has an entertainment den with an exhaustive collection of movies along with an elaborate bar which would be every boy’s dream. What more can you ask for!

Inside Alia Bhatt’s house

Everything about Alia Bhatt’s home is rooted in the modern – From leather furnishings in shades of cream and brown to neon lights in her walk-in closet and polished-wood furnishings. Alia Bhatt’s mother whom she claims is brilliant with interiors, has done up most of her house along with maternal grandfather, who’s an architect. The house is filled paintings and pictures all over the house.

Did you know that all the stunning paintings in Alia’s room are made by her? She has a passion for painting and calls it a big stress reliever. Another space that Alia is her newly built walk-in closet.

Inside Chetan Bhagat’s house



Chetan Bhagat’s apartment is located in Bandra, Mumbai’s most fashionable neighbourhood is all about financial security. Chetan Bhagat’s taste in interiors is much like the way he writes – clean, simple and uncomplicated. His living room bookshelves suggest eclectic tastes, with heavyweight histories next to pot boilers by Stieg Larsson and Alexander McCall Smith.

The hall is the largest part of the Bhagat home which houses furniture (from Hong Kong and Shanghai) and a rectangular Oriental diwan stands out. There is also a large bookshelf in the hall. “Since our kids (twin boys Ishan and Shyam, both 6 1/2) are so young, we couldn’t have brocade or other delicate upholstery. Also, the floor is tavertine finish, which is like marble but a lot more affordable,” he says. Chetan has a little kitchen garden adjoining his office, where he grows lady fingers and tomatoes and says it provides a “fun learning space to the kids too.”

In the bedrooms, the cupboards are teak-plated, something that makes them lighter and cheaper. For the children’s room, he is still looking for a mural designer to add art to it. While his mother’s room has a temple, the kitchen, in grey sandstone, has a fuss-free look. “We’ll be adding appliances. I like to try out recipes there so it’s another hangout. I guess asking for a peaceful, quiet place is a lot in Mumbai, so we’re really happy to be here,” he ends.

So if there’s a celebrity you relate to, it is most likely that the ideas and decoration of his/her home would appeal to you. And who knows – the very same ideas implement in your home could bring you the same peace and prosperity!

CommonFloor.com acquires Flat.to


Enters the fast growing students and bachelors accommodation market 

Bangalore, April 22, 2014: CommonFloor.com, India’s number 1 real estate portal announced today that it has acquired Flat.to, a real estate service that helps students and bachelors find flats, paying guest accommodation and hostels across Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Kota, Jaipur and Delhi. Based out of Mumbai, Flat.to was founded by Gaurav Munjal and Aakrit Vaish in 2013. The portal also provides assistance in finding a flat mate, in case one has already identified suitable accommodation.

With this move, CommonFloor.com is set to enter the student / bachelor accommodation space, which is fast gaining traction across major metros in the country. Earlier this year Commonfloor.com had raised $10.4 million from Tiger Global and Accel Partners. Flat.to currently has a tie-up with over 200 colleges across Mumbai and Pune and offers a choice of selecting an accommodation either through brokers or directly by connecting with owners.

Sumit Jain, Co-founder and CEO, CommonFloor.com said, “CommonFloor.com has always strongly focused on fulfilling every possible property information need of users at all stages of the property cycle – search, research, purchase, property management, sale and rent. By acquiring Flat.to we will now be able to cater to a new segment of the property market – students and bachelors. This is a large segment in the online real estate space with a unique set of needs and requires a different focus. This move gives us a direct foothold in the market backed by a great team that has an experience of operating in this space. Flat.to will continue to function independently with its current identity and Gaurav will continue to head it. We extend to him a warm welcome and wish him all the best.”

With this in mind, today we are excited to announce that Flat.to has been acquired by CommonFloor.com, India’s largest online real estate platform. We engaged with CommonFloor.com a few months back, and found that their team believed in our vision and shared our values. CommonFloor’s experience in the real estate market and guidance will help take the company to the next level and we look forward to working with Sumit and team.”

With this acquisition Aakrit Vaish, Co-founder, Chairman and Lead investor at Flat.to will exit the company. Sharing his thoughts, Aakrit said, “Flat.to was started with the very simple idea of simplifying student housing. I’m proud of what we have been able to achieve in less than a year of operation, and wish the team all the best as they grow to the next level. I will always remain their biggest fan.”

Subrata Mitra, Partner at Accel Partners (Company that has invested in CommonFloor.com) said, “The acquisition is in line with CommonFloor.com’s strategy to own the largest share in the online real-estate space. CommonFloor.com is already the #1 player today and this move is aimed to take a lead in some of the adjacent segments. I firmly believe that this partnership will add immense value to us & the online real-estate space in India.”

The opportunity for online real estate players in bachelor / student accommodation category is huge. According to a January 2014 research paper, Internal Migration for Education and Employment among Youth in India, commissioned by UN-HABITAT’s Global Urban Youth Research Network, in the last ten years a total of 37 lakh between the ages of 15 and 32 migrated within India on account of education.

10 Real Houses Inspired by Cartoons



When we think about watching TV in our childhood days, images of some of the most popular cartoons come to our minds. From the Jungle book where the protagonist Mowgli lives with his animal friends in the forest to Tom and Jerry who are chasing each other around the house, cartoons gave us some of the happiest moments of our childhood. And as children most of us believed and fervently wished for visiting and living in the homes of our favourite cartoons. A wish, often brushed aside by the adults around us back then.

But wait! What if we got inspired by all those cartoons and created something in real life? Well we actually have a few people who got so inspired by cartoons television and built houses just like them. We are as surprised as you are! Here are 10 real houses around the world which are inspired by cartoons.

The Flintstones House


This stone house looks amazingly similar to The Flintstones’. In spite of its unusual look, given by the huge spherical boulder on the uphill side and scoop-shaped end, it is like most contemporary homes on the inside. It has a front door, some windows, a roof. This house is located in Nas Montanhas de Fafe in Portugal.

Hobbit’s House


This amazing Hobbit House was built by Simon Dale, who in spite of not being an architect or even a construction worker, could build this together with his father-in-law and the help of passers-by. It took them just 4 months to have it finished and it cost around 3,000 pounds.

Star Wars-inspired House


This original house was first built in 1970 by Claude King and his folks that took inspiration from Neil Armstrong (who had just landed on the moon). The flying saucer shaped white home is located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The house looks like it was taken right from a Star Wars movie, however the film was released almost 7 years after the house was constructed.

The Simpsons House


This house located in Henderson, Nevada which is worth $120,000 house was constructed for use as the grand prize in a contest sponsored by top brands. The contest was known as “The Simpsons House Give Away”.

Barbie’s House


This modern house was created by interior decorator Jonathan Adler on the eve of Barbie’s 50th birthday. In March 2009, he decked out a real-life 3,500-sq ft pad overlooking the Pacific Ocean to look like the famous doll’s outrageous home. The Barbie’s Real-Life Malibu Dream House is in Malibu, California

Minnie Mouse’s House


This pink and lavender house not only looks cute on the outside but it is full equipped on the inside. It includes items such as an answering machine (where you can listen to messages from Mickey and Goofy), an oven through which you can watch a cake baking, and a microwave that even pops popcorn! It can be seen at the Mickey’s Toontown Fair, in Orlando, Florida and also in Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland Anaheim, California.

Hello Kitty’s House


This pink painted house was 100% inspired by the most famous cat in history. The Hello Kitty villa is located in Taipei, Taiwan.

Heidi’s House


Not only this lovely house looks just like Heidi’s grandfather’s but doesn’t the landscape look very similar as well?

Batman’s House


This mysterious unusual looking house looks like Gotham City’s most famous mansion. And that red flash makes me wonder if the Bat mobile has just passed by.

Snoopy’s House


This giant version of Snoopy’s house is used as an information kiosk for a baseball field complex, part of the Charles M. Schulz Museum, in Santa Rosa, California.

6 Types Of Neighbours Who Are A Real Pain In The Neck!



Haven’t we all heard this saying that – “You can choose your friends, but not your family — or your neighbours“. In the past everyone knew their neighbours, but now considering our busy lifestyles this has taken a back seat. In today’s world, you might meet your neighbours when the kid next door accidentally hit a ball through your living room window, or an apron -clad housewife knocked on your door to borrow a cup of sugar. During these days of both working parents it is becoming increasingly common to buy a house and years later realize that you have never met your neighbours.

But then haven’t we all seen neighbours in our neighbourhood gossiping about us, getting too nosy and getting into our personal space? That’s when you want to actually give them a piece of your mind but then you also want to live in the locality so you make your peace with it and try to live happily. Here’s 6 different types of neighbours each of us would’ve encountered and would relate to in some point or another in life.

The Peeping Toms



Don’t we know that one person who is looking at us through their window? These people are the ones who seem to be interested in every nitty gritty of what we do in our house. They seem to receive an alert, the minute we step out of our houses. They keep track of everyone who comes to your house and also have updates on everything you do. They wouldn’t come and talk to you directly, but want to keep a tab on everything.

The Over friendly and Nosy Neighbours


These are typically the neighbours who will literally stay in your house and wouldn’t even mind helping you out with your daily chores. They don’t know where to draw the line and end up being over friendly. More often than not they cross the line. These neighbours want to know everything about you, your family, how much money you earn every month, where all do you make   investments and you’re spending patterns. They want to know it all without even once thinking that these are personal and you are not comfortable sharing them.

The Richie Riches


These are the typically the type of conversations that neighbours belonging to this category would more often than not speak. They seem to live life only in luxury and would compare anything you do to their actions trying to one up you in everything. For them their life is around money and anything others around them do would be mocked at by passing crass comments.

The Copy Cats – The Me Too Neighbours

copy-catsIf you are noticing a pattern of your neighbours having the same things you possess from quite some time now, then you can rule out the option of it being a sheer co incidence – it’s called copying. These are the type of neighbours who have no clue about what they want to buy and would just end up buying/doing the same set of things that you do, just to fit in. They would scan everything in your home if invited for coffee or for a chat and there you go a replica of it would be in theirs too.

The Constant Borrowers

borrowersIt’s a pleasant Sunday morning and you hear somebody knocking at your door. Surprise! The same neighbours who keep asking you for something or the other are here again asking you for a cup of sugar. These are the neighbours who make complete utilization of the word “HELP” and would constantly keep borrowing things from you. If you have these type of neighbours consider adding a separate list in your monthly groceries called “Neighbours list”!

The Problem Creators


If you can relate to these lines from your neighbours, then you are up for a treat! These neighbours are just too finicky about everything you do from moving a chair at your home to having a party at your home- every single thing of your action bothers them and are waiting to gun you down! They are the ones who are unhappy about everything about their neighbourhood and would constantly keep bickering.

Staying in a neighbourhood gives you the chance to meet different types of people and learning to deal with them. Knowing your neighbour definitely can’t solve a lot of problems, but then you at least know under what category they belong.
