Hello I have a building block which was purchased in 2002 with the expressed purpose of building a new house. However I have noticed a distinct reluctance on behalf of the banks to fund owner builders. I am currently with the Nab and noticed it took a considerable long time to obtain a personnel loan with them last year. I currently own the home that I live in but will have to consider in the next couple of years addressing some major renovations, which I frankly cannot be bothered doing. I would rather build a new house and sell the old one. problem is finance. I don't want to sell to live in a rental property while I construct the new house. Does any one know of a bank/building society that will fund owner builders?
