Fixed Home Loan rates : In true Fixed Rate Home Loans the rates remain fixed throughout the tenure of the loan no matter what. These kind of rates are very expensive (13.50%+ for a 20 year home loan in November 2010) and are offered by a limited number of lenders in the market.

Resettable Fixed Rates : Most of the so called Fixed Rates available in the market are of this variety. Here the interest rate is fixed for a period of 2-5 years and is then reset for a further period of 2-5 years and so on. These rates are more reasonable than the true fixed rates dealt with above. You just need to be clear about the nature of fixed rate contract you are getting into.

Floating Home Loan rates (also called variable rate loans or adjustable rate loans)

For Banks: The effective rate is linked to the Bank’s Base Rate. The base rate would have to be declared by the banks at least once every quarter. It is open to each bank to decide its own methodology for fixing the base rate but it is not allowed to change the methodology after selecting one methodology. The banks will have to document how it has arrived at the base rate and follow the same system consistently.

The calculation of the base rate will be open to the RBI for review (which should at least ensure that a set system is actually followed while calculating the Base Rate). This is of course a much better stipulation than  the earlier system of BPLR, where no such system was required to be documented by the bank and there was no question of any calculation that could be reviewed by RBI.

So even though composition of the base rate from the customer’s perspective might continue to remain opaque still it is a better situation than the erstwhile BPLR since the regulator will ensure calculation of Base rate is done in a consistent and fair manner.

RBI has banned lending below Base rates except limited categories of loans such as employee loans, loan against its own fixed deposits, Differential Interest rate loans to SC/ST, etc.

The advantage therefore from the consumer’s perspective  is that when markets rate soften, obviously new borrowers will not borrow at the same rate as earlier. So if the base rate is fixed at 8%, and bank lends to corporates at Base Rate (8%) and possibly even to existing home loans seekers at Base Rates (8%). When interest rates in the market soften, the banks will be forced to reduce their Base rates as now new customers will not borrow at 8% and banks cannot lend below that rate without reducing their Base Rates. Thus banks will be forced to lower its base rate in response to market forces.

Any reduction in base rates, will automatically apply to the old customer as well as new customers without any discrimination.

For HFCs: The Base Rate Guidelines are for banks, but unless the regulator for the housing finance companies, National Housing Bank comes up with similar guidelines, ironically two of the market leaders, HDFC and LICHF and many others will not be covered by the new regime. Their customer may still be governed under old non transparent regime.
