In India, can I be a co-borrower to a mortgage loan of a property which my father owns and then even take a home loan for a new property? (The mortgage loan will be used for paying the 20% self finance amount) Will there be an impact on my home loan eligibility?

Will a bank let you be a co-borrower on a mortgage loan if you have no ownership of the property? – Dilip Sarwate Oct 1 '12 at 20:35

You can be a co-borrower on the property that your father owns. Some Banks require that you also be part owner of the property, some banks do not require this.

You can take a home loan for a new property, normally Banks will ask you of all your current loans [auto/other home/personal/ etc] to determine the amount they will be ready to lend.

The first loan I believe your father already has a property in his name ... your father can apply for Loan against property ... if he does not have sufficient income, then you can guarantee the loan [ie co-sign on the loan, some banks allow this ... however there is no tax benefit on this loan] .

The second is the Home Loan for the balance amount that you would get it …

Both the loans can be taken from the same Bank, there would be a overall cap as to the amount of loan a Bank would give depending on your income, further the finance for this house will only be to the extent of 80% of the value.
