custom build mortgages

If you’re a mortgage adviser, looking for the best mortgage for your client’s custom build home, look no further than BuildLoan.

With a custom build home, your clients are buying a new home and paying for it in stages as their build progresses. Your clients will work with professionals to design or customise a home that suits their individual lifestyle, which is delivered for them on a multiple plot site.  Their stage payments will be made at key milestones, usually three or four, determined by the developer. 

BuildLoan has a range of exclusive mortgages designed specifically for custom build homes in England, Wales and Scotland.
