Common Questions

Help to buy is an equity loan from the government for up to 20% of the cost of a new build home enabling buyers to only raise 5% deposit and giving buyers better mortgage rates as the lenders will accept the government loan as an additional deposit meaning the loan to value is only 75%. If you are a developer who is not registered with help to buy we can advise you on the process of achieving a help to buy status.

There are many ways to appraise potential opportunities but fundamentally an appraisal needs to be able to produce a net return after all costs, at complete when we appraise any opportunity we always take in to consideration GDV – Gross development value, rental yields and investment potential. We have built our own start of the art appraisal process which we are happy to share with customers insuring the opportunity is right for them. Under new planning legislation more and more local authorities are encouraging and in some instances insisting on large developments that custom or self-build pots re being provided.
A custom build plot is bought by a self-builder but with a custom build contract built into the transaction
A self-build, the plot is bought and developed by the self-builder themselves. Having acquired and deposed of many self and custom built plots we would be delighted to advise on all areas relating to either of the above.
