I'm building my own home, can I get a mortgage on it?

Hello. I purchased an old semi detached home and have no mortgage. I knocked the property down and have re-built on the same plot. It is almost finished. Is it likely I can get a mortgage on the property once all is signed off? Is it possible prior to sign off? Lastly, with little credit rating and being self employed, I suspect it to be unlikely though am hoping with the property as security, I may have options? Thanks


Without knowing what your credit profile is like, what level of income you can demonstrate being self employed, and how much you are looking to borrow, it's difficult to say whether we can get you a mortgage or not.

However, as an Independent, Whole of Market broker that's been going nearly 40 years, there are very few cases that we really can't place.

If you'd like to see what we can / can't do for you, then please let me know and I'll arrange for one of our consultants to contact you.
