Hi Hendry

I have asked a couple of our recommended mortgage brokers to comment on this discussion thread.

There are plenty out there.
Some don't lend on the land but guess that won't worry you.
I have a list of 20 odd pinned to my board.
Norwich and Peterborough and BM solutions are two popular ones.
Just buy a copy of a self build magazine from the newsagents.
Can't wait to do another 'self build' myself

Thank you Hendry and Mark,

As always, best advice is to use your Mortgage Adviser. He or she will have access to the latest up to date deals along with a detailed knowledge of the criteria required. Different lenders will have different requirements regarding stage payments etc, so it is not an easy thing to do yourself.

If you would like to talk through your plans, please feel free to contact me via my profile. We (HD Consultants) have an existing business relationship with Property 118.

As above I would go through a broker. I have had two self build mortgages, both were arranged through Buildstore and were Advance Payment mortgages. The payment stages were Land, Damp, Roof Plate, Water Tight, first Fix, second fix, completion. I had to get an architect to sign off each stage, but I think some now send out their own assessor and can charge a few hundred pound per visit.

whatever route you take as Anth says Buildstore are a mine of information and specialists as this type of thing!!!
You will find a massive amount of info on their website and the homebuilding and renovation centre in Swindon is excellent.

I am in edinburgh Scotland and got mine approved last Nov 14 from the scottish building society.

As Anth Hubbard has stated above the payments are claimed after the work is done but you use your deposit to start the build after you buy the the land. The SBS will pay 75% of the land costs and you pay the other 25% with your deposit.

I did however have to have a £65,000 deposit so rules are strict!
