For most people getting their finances in order is an important starting point for their self build project. If you need to borrow money then finding the right mortgage for your build project is crucial to ensuring the success of the project.

A mortgage for a self build differs from a mortgage you would use to buy a house because with a self build mortgage the money is released in stages as the build progresses. There are however different ways in which this money can be released and the advice we will give you will depend on your own particular circumstances. This is why it is important to discuss your options as early in your project as possible with one of our qualified Mortgage Advisors here at Watts.

Every self build project has identifiable stages from the initial digging of the foundations to the final fix and at each stage the value of the build increases. The following chart shows the typical stages in a traditional brick & block construction.



Brick & Block


Purchase of land


Preliminary costs & foundations


Wall plate level

First fix & plastering


Second fix to completion

For further information contact one of our team of specialists on 01270 620555 or email on .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), they will be more than happy to discuss the best options for your self build project.

Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Thank you for the great service that you provided for me in sorting my critical illness cover. Having a busy workload at this time of year, Barry came to my home at a time to suit me and gave me some advice on what would be best suited to my needs. From my first dealings through to the finished documents I felt at ease knowing that all the staff had one thing on their mind in getting me the best advice possible and trying to make it as stress free as possible. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommend Watts Mortgages services to any of our clients/family and friends. Thanks once again.
