Fund construction in 6 separate stages

Common construction loan questions

To apply for this loan, you’ll need to have:
  • Finalised the purchase of your land
  • Selected a licensed Master Builder
  • Building plans
  • Copy of the fixed HIA/MBA Building contract
The rate is higher during construction due to the associated risks. Once construction has completed, your rate will roll over to a lower variable rate.
With the completion of each stage of your renovation or build, we’ll arrange an inspection of the property and then pay the builder directly for the completed work. Each progress payment is called a drawdown.

The number of drawdowns will depend on the agreement between you, your builders, and your lender. Loan repayments in constructions loan are interest-only but once the entire renovation is completed, the construction loan will revert to principal & interest repayments, unless you request to extend the interest-only period.
The 6 construction stages are:
  • Deposit
  • Slab down
  • Frame up complete
  • Lock-up
  • Fixing
  • Practical completion

A progress inspection will be carried out by an independent valuer for each building stage. Once your builder sends the invoice to us, a progress inspection will be ordered.
Yes, you may be eligible for our construction loan if you are completing extensive renovations to your existing property.
