If you are intending to use a bridging loan or mortgage, make sure it’s suitable for the project ahead. Builders usually expect to be paid monthly, so a badly planned payment release schedule could cause unnecessary difficulties further down the line.
We suggest your first point of call when seeking a mortgage should be BuildStore Mortgage Services – the UK's self build and renovation finance experts. BuildStore offers a wide selection of mortgages and exclusive deals, including with the Ecology Building Society, which reward borrowers with lower interest rates for sustainable low-carbon designs – like our eco-friendly kit houses.
If you are looking to build a Hebhome or mutiple Hebhomes as a letting business then a house mortgage is usually not suitable. We would suggest a company such as RQ Capital that specialise in lending for development within the tourism industry. You could also contact Kintail Finance for commercial proposals.
To fund a HebHomes project you will likely require a ‘stage payment’ mortgage, which releases funds as your build progresses. There are two types, defined by when you get the money: a traditional arrears stage payment, in which money is released after each build phase is completed, or an advance stage payment, in which the money is released before the build phase takes place. Your cash flow and savings will determine the right solution for you.
BuildStore’s Accelerator mortgage is ideally suited to SIP house projects. Money is released at the beginning, rather than the end, of each build stage, plus you get cash to fund the early stages of your build, including the land purchase, and the purchase and erection of the kit:
With the correct mortgage you should have more money, enhanced cash flow and greater flexibility during your project. For expert advice on financing your HebHome, complete the enquiry form or call 0345 223 4888.
