What is Loan Against Property:

Loans Against Property (LAPs) are loans offered by banks and financial institutions after mortgaging freehold property, both residential and commercial. These loans are much better options than personal loans or gold loans during times of financial crises or when you need money to expand your business.
LAPs are, therefore, one of the most sought-after loans in India and are even more affordable today on account of the competition in the loans-disbursal market. Not just affordable, LAP are also very easy (or simple) to avail and repay. This is so because real-estate is mortgaged when you avail LAP and real-estate prices rarely dip which makes them much more safer.
