Best Advice

Whereas sourcing a mortgage for a client buying a house is generally quick, straightforward and typically rate driven, for someone wishing to build or renovate their own home - cashflow and a well-managed budget are the vital ingredients for a smooth project.

Unfortunately, sourcing systems offer nothing more than a tick box for self build. Where do you go next? Lowest rate or criteria, building system or cashflow requirements? A great rate is of little consequence, if the funds aren’t available when your client needs them to pay their bills at each stage of their project. Whose fault will it be when the project grinds to a halt with people to pay and the next release isn’t due?
