    Development Loan

    Hey!

    I have my own home plus 2 btl properties. The end goal is to design and build our own home.

    I’m at the early stages of research - checking land price in the area we like and looking at finance options. Because of the level of stamp duty ideally we’d like to purchase land with very little already on!

    The actual building side of things we have covered. I’m just wondering if anyone has done this with a development loan rather than a self-build mortgage? And if you’d mind letting me know a bit about how it worked etc. There isn’t really a lot about it online.

    my understanding is that some lenders will lend the full building costs subject to evidence that there’s an exit plan in place? For example evidence we have x savings plus the ability to get a mortgage on a residential property of that value.

    There are indeed Specialist short term lenders who will assist with development projects, but in the main only once Planning Consent has been obtained. Each lender has its own maximum level of development finance geared against the Gross Development value of the project. Interest can be rolled up or serviced on a monthly basis , it will however be of equal importance that you establish the ability of securing long term finance as the guaranteed exit strategy.
    Depending on the percentage loan involved interest rates are in the region of 0.7% per month with all the associated fees which normally incur a 2% Completion Fee, Specialist Valuation Fee and legal costs.
    I suggest that a timeline is created to show when funds against validated works are required , this will be important to avoid stress of overruns which seems to occur with most development projects.

      Thank you loanarranger that’s really helpful.

      I think I will need to have a hypothetical plan outline first with a timeline then think about the land etc. Working out if it’s a financially viable idea is really tricky.

          CassieC,

          I suggest you visit a large WH Smiths Store and buy a monthly magazine for self - building homes etc. You probably need to find a mortgage lender which makes advances by stages based on the height of the building.

            To qualify further my previous comments , I believe your mortgage may be held by Jasper Mortgages, a subsidiary of Topaz Home Loans.
            I am presently handling a substantial mortgage portfolio wherethe borrower sadly died unexpectedly and Jasper Mortgages ( Mortgage Express ) is one of the 16 lenders,...

            Hello, I've been trying to sort out my structure for a while and keep hitting dead ends and so i thought i would see if anybody on here has any suggestions. I have a number of properties held jointly with my brother and a number held in a limited company. I want to transfer the personally held properties...

            It the lender acquired the MX mortgage book , then there will be no amendments allowed , so far as they are concerned they want their money back sooner rather than the mortgage term,and will not permit any variation to the current position. This is standard practice for any close mortgage lender including...

            The mechanism of moving properties into a partnership and then into a company is offered by companies as a solution to the problem of incorporating personally owned property into a business without paying a whole shedload of CGT.

            That would solve a number of issues for me and I have looked...

            by Jammy99
            Hi all, so I'm weighing up whether to go down the Ltd Company BTL route vs. the Personal BTL route. However, I'm struggling to find descent mortgage interest rates. I'm aware that personal BTL interest rates are lower eg 2.3% vs Ltd company at 4.71%. So, my question is what is the best Company BTL interest...

            That's a huge advantage.
            It's a business - it's just an investment business rather than a build/buy and sell business.

            Loanarranger is right, that your particular situation will be unique and so the right route isn't necessarily right for anyone but you.
            And things don't stay...

            I'm pretty sure that ^ is not correct, as are some other parts. In the first place, your brother is the person initially getting rid of assets - the fact that you are incorporating has no relevance to his tax liability. Second even if you could persuade HMRC that what you are doing is reasonable (if...

            Hello, thanks for the answers. I’ve tried about 5 different accountants and none of them were very sure about anything which is why I have done quite a bit of looking at this myself. It was the mortgage company I was talking to about transfer of equity but they weren’t sure. They bought the mortgage...

            No problems, your question had validity and justified every assistance. In terms of updated rates as and when you need them just let us know.
            Important to note that not all lenders offer loyalty rates , I know for a fact that as many of the relative newbies to this sector have warranty agreements...

            Taking on-board your replies jpkeates and loanarranger.

            My going in point was to compare overall mortgage costs between Company and Personal BTL mortgages (not just going for the lowest rate). I was just taken back a bit by the seemingly significant difference and wanted to check if the...
