why do lenders choose buildloan?

BuildLoan provides lenders with controlled distribution of quality self and custom build mortgage business, with a robust sales, packaging and risk mitigation process.  

We are the UK’s leading distributor of self and custom build finance.

 Few lenders are geared up to handle enquiries for self and custom build.  This type of specialist lending requires expert support on all sorts of issues including costings, cashflow and construction. 

Our broker desk is on hand to answer all of the questions you and your clients have when you receive an enquiry.  With 100% focus on homebuilding finance, you will find them an invaluable source of support and knowledge.

BuildLoan’s in-house underwriting team has an in-depth understanding of each lender’s lending policy and carefully checks and collates the information required by the lender. Our industry-experienced cost assessors ensure that the costings for each client are realistic so that there isn’t the worry of clients running into problems part way through their project.

A self build can take up to three years to complete.  At BuildLoan, we remain in close contact with your customer throughout their project and our build monitoring team regularly checks in with them to obtain an update and resolve any potential issues.  With a traditional self build mortgage lender, that level of support simply isn’t there for customers.    

Risk Mitigation 

Our processes and products have been designed to safeguard everyone involved.  We provide an unbeatable level of support to your customers and products that get the build done.
