I am the existing SBI Max gain loan borrower for my flat, I have just go through all the suggestion you had given in this forum, but my problem is different, I had borrowed loan from SBI on the name of Myself & Co-owner my brother for loan sanction eligibility, but now I am solely eligible for my outstanding loan & want to change the co-owner to my wife in place of my brother.

Please suggest me if it can be possible.

    Dear Prashk,

    If your brother is the co-owner of the property then he has to be the co-borrower of the loan. This is because all co-owners have to be co-borrowers but all co-borrowers need not be co-owners.

    However, adding your wife as a co-borrower to the loan would not be allowed now since the bank agreed to the risk of lending you after evaluating your brother and your credit worthiness.

    Dear Prash, are you asking to change loan applicant from Brother to Wife or property ownership from Brother to wife?
