Self-build

Self-build provides opportunities for buyers to choose the type of home they want and make sure it meets their needs.

We have developed a guide to self-building a home to help people who are new to self-build understand what's involved and where to find out more.

We are working with all relevant organisations to:

  • review best practice and current self-build procedures and programmes
  • find out what the potential barriers are

This will help us to identify opportunities to encourage more people to build their own homes.

We offer a £4 million Self-Build Loan Fund that can provide loans up to £175,000 to eligible applicants unable to access standard bank lending. The loan is to help with construction fees for self-build projects. Find out more about the fund and apply online.
