How Building Loans Work

construction loan results

When it comes to construction loans then the amount isn’t given in lump sum instead, it is given in portions as the construction works progress, which is known as progress payments or draw-downs.

With every stage of construction the next portion of the loan can be drawn down. Before, the progress payments, there has to be made a deposit or down payment to cover the initial cost of the material required to start constructions.

Post the deposit, there are 5 stages in which the progressive payments are received:

  • First Stage: Slab down or Base
  • Second Stage: Frame
  • Third Stage: Lock-up
  • Fourth Stage: Fixing or Fit-out (roof)
  • Fifth Stage: Completion (lock up)

The build process can be grouped into 4 steps:

  • Building contact
  • Building plan
  • Council approval
  • Quotation
