This includes a person's education, occupation, number of dependents, current surveys, savings, insurance policies etc. Having more number of dependents or current liabilities means that the repayment capacity will be relatively low.

Age of the borrower
Age also plays an important role in the cancellation of loan applications. A young applicant may get a longer repayment period while if one is nearing retirement, then the bank only gives a short-term loan.
One should also keep in mind that good credit history is equally important for getting any loan. The better your credit score is, the greater is the chance of getting a loan. Another important factor for a home loan is the location of the property. Do check with the banks if they provide loan for the said location or not. If it is in the blacklist of the bank, you won't be able to get the loan.
