What is a Building Loan

Are you revamping or building from scratch and need extra finance? A Building Loan is a home financing solution that enables you to build a new home or carry out renovations on an existing property. A Building Loan is where a retention becomes applicable on the loan amount and the funds are advanced to the borrower in stages/ progress payments during the construction period of the dwelling and improvements. Once the home is built, the Building Loan reverts to a normal Home Loan.

The deposit will be based on the lower of the total package price, or FNB’s assessed market value on completion.
