Construction Loan FAQs

Yes, we can accomodate a conditional approval for a construction advance with a fixed price quote from a licensed builder in lieu of a completed building contract.

This is a common issue, we would strongly suggest that you never ever start a building project without a formally approved loan to cover at the very least the full amount of your building contract. We can only assist with a loan to complete a partially completed property if the construction project is at fixing stage.

Typically, a construction loan will be based on whichever of the following is the lessor: hard costs (land value plus building contract sum inc gst) or the on completion value of the dwelling(s).

We can assist with a construction advance, but we are unable to finance any demolition or works that are not directly attributed to property improvements. This is because they do not directly relate to the security that is being financed therefore the land would need to be cleared at your own cost.

Depending on when you are looking at commencing construction after settlement, we can assist with both the land and construction advance within one loan application. Typically to complete this we would require that construction commence within 3 months of settlement. If you are not ready to construct this soon after purchasing your land, we can assist with vacant land finance in some instances.
