How do self-build mortgages work?

Self-build homes are built and paid for in stages, and you’re unlikely to be able to draw enough from the value of your plot alone to cover all of your costs. Self-build mortgages therefore release funds in stages as work progresses, rather than as a single payment.

There are two types of self-build mortgage: valuation-based and cost-based. The two types of deal have very different features so it’s really important that you understand how any mortgage you choose will work – particularly how the lender decides how much money they’ll give you at each stage of your build.

Valuation Based Mortgages

Valuation-based stage payment mortgages release funds after each stage of the building process is completed and a lender’s valuation shows an uplift in value. This means you won’t know how much money you’ll get after you’ve completed each stage so there is a real risk you won’t get what you need, which could bring your build to a standstill.

These mortgages may be more suitable for traditional building methods, where the build costs are more evenly spread across the build, where you already own your plot so already have some built-in value or where you have more cash of your own available to put into your build.

Cost Based Mortgages

Cost-based stage payment mortgages provide guaranteed stage payments based on your build costs. Funds can either be released before or after each build stage, depending on your payment schedule. There are no valuations during the build, so stage releases can be agreed as part of your mortgage application. This type of mortgage is exclusively available from BuildStore and works particularly well with a Rob Roy Homes timber frame home as you can get money from the lender towards the cost of your frame before it’s even on site.

How much can you borrow?

How much you can borrow depends on your financial circumstances. Like any mortgages, lenders will assess your income and outgoings to calculate what you can afford.

For a valuation-based self-build mortgage, the money your lender will release is typically restricted to 80% of their assessment of the value of your site at any time – you won’t know how much is available to you until you ask for more money.

With BuildStore’s higher lending percentages, you can borrow up to 95% of your costs, (100% if you already own your plot) with a maximum of up to 90% of the expected end value of your home. What’s more, you’ll be told as part of your mortgage application how much you’ll receive at each stage of your build guaranteed.
