Getting a large
deposit together
can be tough.

That’s why we’re so excited to partner with Squirrel mortgages to offer you a 5% deposit* deal, with no payments until you move in, so you can enjoy the building process.

*Some conditions apply.

Enjoy your home building adventure, without sweating about the cashflow.

Most building contracts require you to make progress payments throughout the build, and as you add these to your mortgage your interest repayments will increase. This can be tricky if you’re also paying rent or a mortgage on another property. Some banks also require you to get valuations throughout the build before they release funds for each stage, which can be a time consuming and costly process.

Here's the good news!

We’ve partnered with Squirrel HomeBuild, which allows you to:
