Helping you secure a special home
Some people love a period property, but for others, there’s nothing to compare with owning a home that’s brand-new. If that’s you, it’s worth considering specialist help to guide you through the complexities of new-build home ownership.
With new-builds, you may find the interest rate you’re offered is higher than for other properties. That’s because lenders often think of new-builds as riskier and more likely to lose value early on. Our experts can help you navigate this and find the right deal.
Your questions, answered
What classifies as a “new-build”?
The generally accepted definition of a new-build home is that it must have been built in the last two years, and never owned or lived in. They’re popular among people who prefer a more modern look to their house and want to avoid inheriting long-standing maintenance issues, which sometimes come with older properties.
Some lenders have different definitions of “new-build”, though, so it’s important to check with your chosen provider before going ahead with any application.
Do I need to buy from a developer?
In theory, you can arrange to have a property built yourself, but in practice, most people buy from a developer. Either way, unless you’re paying for your new home in cash, you’ll need to secure a construction loan. You’re strongly advised to get specialist help before going ahead with any application.
Some lenders may offer you a loan that’s interest-only to begin with, and converts to a mortgage once the build is complete. The advantage of this is that you only pay closing costs once. With our expert help, you’ll be supported through every step of the process.
How much deposit should I save?
When it comes to applying for a mortgage, every lender has different products on offer and criteria to be met. As a rule of thumb, though, for a new-build home, you should be looking to save a deposit amount between 10% and 30% of your intended purchase price.
