Buildstore are the UK’s leading self and custom build mortgage expert, with over 20 years’ experience and 25,000 homes built.

We’re delighted to be working with Graven Hill to give you expert mortgage advice to help make your dream home a reality.

Buildstore Finance Advice Workshop

Whether you wish to self-build, shape some of the features of your new home, or something in-between — they can help.

At Buildstore, we believe understanding your budget and borrowing options come first when looking to buy or build your home. The route you choose depends on your budget, and will influence the type of mortgage you need — so it’s important to speak to an expert mortgage adviser early on.

Stage Payment Mortgages

With the Self-Build and Mix and Match options currently available, your new home will be paid for in stages, rather than as a single amount. Your first payment will be for the land for your chosen serviced plot. The remainder of the payments will be staggered as the building commences. Rather than borrowing funds using a traditional mortgage, a stage payment mortgage is required. This releases funds in stages, throughout the build, either before or after each stage of the works.

Buildstore has developed a range of exclusive stage payment mortgages for self and custom build, offering higher lending percentages, competitive rates and guaranteed upfront stage payments. Not only will our mortgage advisers tailor your mortgage in line with specific stages and the payment schedule of your new home, Buildstore’s dedicated stage release team will be with you throughout the build process, facilitating your mortgage stage payments.
