4. Getting Finance

The basics of building

Getting finance to build your home can be quite stressful. One of the reasons for this anxiety is that most people think that getting pre-approval guarantees them the funds to build their home.

There are two problems with this as pre-approvals have limitations:

  • A 3 month life span
  • Not a guarantee for the funds

In order to get the final approval for your loan, you will need 3 important documents from your builder:

  • Approved house plans
  • The final tender
  • Signed contract

The bank will need all three documents before giving you final approval for your loan. Sometimes before you get these documents you will have to go on a 6-12 month journey with your builder.

It is very important that you only use the pre-approval as a guideline and a rough budget to what you can afford and be sure to plan ahead.
