Lease Rental Discounting



Owing to the rise of businesses in the country, there are several options available for loans in the Indian Debt Market. Lease rental discounting is one of such loans. Despite the fact that rented property is a steady source of income, the providers of the loan are quite limited. The lease rental discounting loan is acquired for several purposes such as starting a new business, investing in another property, personal reasons and others.

What is Lease Rental Discounting?

It is a term loan that is provided to the borrower based on their income from the rented property. A major aspect that affects the lease rental discounting loan is the availability of rent receipts from the tenants or any other relevant proof of receiving rent. Although, there are several other factors that matter when obtaining a lease rental discounting loan.

Characteristics of Lease Rental Discounting Loan

    • It is a secured loan in which the rented property is the collateral.
    • The loan is provided against future expected rentals.
    • Rented properties with leases 5 to 10 years are provided with this loan.
    • The loan is provided to individuals who are salaried, professionals, or even self-employed.
    • In the case of firms, the loan is provided to proprietorship and partnership firms, limited and private limited companies.
    • Preferred borrowers are the owners of properties rented to known brands and corporates. The loan is also provided to the retail segment.
    • The minimum amount of loan provided is between 20L to 1Cr, which varies among the loan providing organizations. The maximum amount can go up to 10 Cr or more.
    • One of the parameters considered while providing the lease rental discounting loan is the EMI amount. With EMI less than 80% of the rent that is received every month, the loan is provided as per the tenure.
    • The loan amount is also decided based on the overall rental income for the expected tenure. Less than 80% of the expected amount of rental income over the tenure period is sanctioned. The tenure is less than the expiry of the lease.
    • Another parameter used to determine the loan amount is the market value of the property. The amount of loan provided in this way is less than 70% of the property of the rented property.
    • The maximum tenure on lease rental discounting loan is between 10 to 15 years. It can always be less than that.
    • For the repayment of the loan, an escrow account is created in the name of the borrower.
    • From this account, the EMI amount will be withdrawn and it is also the account in which the tenant/s will be asked to transfer their rent.
    • The lease rental discounting interest rate is in the same range as property loans. It varies from 7% to 11%.
