Self build mortgages differ from standard mortgages because unlike standard mortgages which release funds in one lump sum, the self build mortgage releases the funds in phases. Usually there are up to 6-8 stages. These include purchase of land, laying of foundation, build to eaves level, roofing stage, plastering stage and finally the completion.
What types of self build mortgage are available?
There are two main types of mortgage options available. The first is the arrears – based mortgage, which releases the funds on completion of each stage. The second is the advance payment mortgage which releases the funds at the beginning of each stage.
Before a lender will consider your application for a mortgage you will need to provide detailed plans and costings for land, professional fees, building work and materials plus any project management costs.
