A land loan is financing that allows you to purchase a plot of land. As with a home mortgage, you can obtain a land loan through a bank or a lender, who will evaluate your credit history and the value of the land to determine if you’re an eligible buyer. Individuals can apply for this loan on their own or collectively. The co-applicants for the plot loans must be the proposed owners of the plot. Co-applicants generally comprise of family members and need not be co-owners of the property.
