Self build mortgages
Building your own home can be a very exciting time as you have put months of thought into size , design, energy rating etc. . But it can be confusing when it comes to getting your self build mortgages as there are so many variables – purchasing or getting gift of the site / how do I draw down the loan / do I pay for all the loan straight away / do I need to draw down the full amount that I am approved for etc.
At Mortgage Buddy we will meet you at a time that suits. You don’t have to limit your appointment to 9 – 5. We deal with a number of Irelands leading lenders which ensures that we get the mortgage that is the best fit for you.
We will take you through the mortgage process from beginning to end taking care of all paperwork, from initial application right through to drawing down our final stage payment.
Once you have your approval in Principal in place ( AIP) you can start to draw down your loan.
