Self Builder

There is a lot to be said for building your own home. The total cost can be significantly less than if you bought one of similar specifications from a developer. Also, within limits, you can build to meet your exact requirements. The Government is very keen on promoting self-build and they see it as one way of tackling the short-fall in housing numbers.

There are also co-operative groups whereby people share their skills in helping each other to build their homes.

This is all very positive but you will still need to find the land, meet the cost of its purchase and fund the construction.

LEA FS has connections with all the lenders who will provide funding for self-build projects. So, if this is something you would like to pursue, talk to us so we can advise on the right route for you.
