Benefits of buying a home in the wife’s name

Posted by Balaji on November 25, 2020

You may have often heard of new home buyers registering their property in the names

of their wives. While this is obviously an act of empowerment, it also comes with many

advantages that you can enjoy especially if you are planning to get a home loan. Apart

from providing your partner with a valuable asset registered in her name, here are

some more advantages of buying the property on behalf of a woman.


Home loan benefits:

When we search for a home loan, the biggest thing to remember is the rate of interest.

If your partner is a working woman, she can take advantage of a home loan and also

enjoy exclusive home loan benefits for women.  For women borrowers, most banks

have a lower rate of interest.

For example, the interest rate for working women on a home loan may be about 8.55

percent, while it is 8.60 percent for their male counterparts. When a woman is a co-

applicant, this lower percentage may also be redeemed. Therefore, it is very beneficial

to those who wish to take a home loan, to do so by registering the property in the

name of their partner.


Lower interest rates:

Many banks provide lower interest rates for women applicants. A lower rate makes a

great impact on Monthly Instalments (EMIs) and offers significant savings over the

loan period.


Women benefit as co-borrowers:

Women have the opportunity to apply as co-borrowers with their partners. The couple’s

combined income means higher eligibility for the loan and greater flexibility in choosing

a suitable home for their family. In addition, women also enjoy a tax deduction on

home loan repayments, like their male partners with a maximum deduction allowed in

principal as well as interest.


Lower stamp duty:

The government is encouraging homeownership for women as well. In many state

governments, home loan benefits for women include lower stamp duty charges of 1-

2%. Though 1–2% may seem like a small amount, the amount saved is very

significant, considering the overall cost of the property and comparing 1-2% of the

same. This will encourage new home buyers towards the property.


Women today have a clear pathway to homeownership and with supportive Family,

banks, and government schemes on their side, they can work their way to their dream

home with ease.

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

    Mr. Balaji is our family acquaintance and is known to us for several years, he is also involved in philanthropic work, It is our good fortune that we entrusted the sale of our ancestral property to Mr. Balaji and his company. Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
