STEP 3.
Financing.
We prepare the documentation required by Banks to give construction loans on behalf of our clients.
The documentation include
1. Approved plans
2. Bills of Quantities
3. Feasibility study/Business plan

Basically, construction loans are designed to be long-term so that the monthly repayments are in small quantities which are equivalent to the rent. This way, the house owner is saved from having to raise the large amount of capital needed to put up a house hence a win-win situation between the house owner and the Bank.

Conclusion.

With these 3 easy steps, acquiring your dream house can never be easier.
www.a4architect.com takes you from the initial process of looking for suitable land [STEP 1] to choosing your house plans and designs [STEP 2] to applying for construction financing [STEP 3].
