Builders Deposits

Builders Deposits

Builders Deposits - Builders deposits are a form of gifted deposit in which the construction company or individual that build a property fund the whole, or a proportion of the deposit in a mortgage purchase process. For those with limited cash funds or ability to capital raise, builders deposits can be the ideal solution in obtaining a mortgage. When lenders tighten their lending criteria, it is often the case that lower loan-to-value ratios are required to attain a mortgage. In these cases, a builders deposit can contribute towards an increased deposit amount, lessening the financial burden of a lump-sum payment at the start of a mortgage term.

However, some lenders may not accept builders deposits and other forms of gifted deposit as part of the deposit on a property. In some instances, builders deposits are seen by lenders as a reduction in the property’s value when assessing your mortgage application, not as a contribution towards a deposit down-payment.
