How is LAP different from PL?
If you can spend a little more time in processing and documentation, a cheaper loan than Personal Loan (PL) is a Loan against Property (LAP).
LAP is a personal loan given by mortgaging your house property. The loan is given as a certain percentage of the property’s market value, usually around 40-60 per cent. LAP interest rates are cheaper by 3- 4 per cent compared to personal loan rates.
