Construction Loan – A Complete Guide for Australian Home Buyers

What is a Construction Loan?
It is a short-term, interim loan for financing the cost of constructing your new dream home. Lenders/credit providers will secure a mortgage over the real estate property you are financing, and they will make periodic payments to your builder at periodic intervals as the work progresses.

The key features of a Construction Loan are:
• It is typically a short-term solution with a maximum of one year

• The borrowers will be expected to pay Interest Only payments during the construction period

• Interest is only calculated against the portion of the loan amount that has been drawn down

• Construction must commence within 12 months of loan settlement

• Construction must be completed within 12 months of the first progress drawdown payment

• Upon completion of the building project, your loan will roll over into a standard Principal and Interest home loan

When are Progress Payments Drawn Down?
• For the purchase of the vacant land
• After the laying of the flooring
• After the installation of the roof (including the frames)
• At lock-up stage, and
• At the completion stage

Additional Documents for Processing a Construction Loan:
• Fixed Price Building Contract
• Council approved plans and specifications
