Good afternoon BC
I have been playing with the idea of buying land for an eco self-build for some time and have my eye on somewhere as a serious option for me. However, coming from ‘Generation Rent’ - I have little idea of the mortgage process and restrictions for self-built properties.
The ‘Eco Resource’ has some good recommendations for companies I can approach for further enquiries. But in the meantime, it would be great to get feedback here - can anyone let me know what they’ve built, who their mortgage was with, experience with cost and duration, and also - what type of buildings can be/might not be covered? I have an idea to include a yurt within my plans - would this be excluded?
And would a part-time residency (where I’d be split between a semi-detached house and the eco-residence) cause a problem for finding a mortgage - as a first time buyer or otherwise?
Fingers crossed you can help!
