|Self Build Mortgages Once
you have found your land the next thing that you need is a flexible self
build mortgage. There are now mortgages on the market that cater for self
building. The Accelerator
Self Build Mortgage allows you to borrow up to 95% of the land and the build costs.
This type of mortgage releases money at the start of each stage of the
build so therefore allows good cashflow during the build. So if you are
building with a timber frame, the accelerator mortgage releases funds when
you need to pay for the timber frame.
