BuildLoan running IFA seminars

BuildLoan is hosting a series of roadshows designed to help intermediaries better deal with their clients in the market self-build mortgage market.

The specialist provider of self-build mortgages via intermediaries says it has designed the roadshows to enable IFAs to learn about the self-build market and the opportunities it presents.

It will also cover how BuildLoan can help intermediaries deal with these clients more efficiently and will finish with a Q&A session with experts in self-build finance.

The seminars are at: Huddersfield on October 25, Bristol on November 21 and Basingstoke on December 13. Advisers wishing to attend should call BuildLoan on 0870 870 9499 or email

BuildLoan head Stewart Cooper says: “Many intermediaries find that because they only get self build enquiries irregularly, the products and expertise BuildLoan provides is proving to be extremely valuable in helping them deal effectively with these clients.”

Key to the BuildLoan proposition is the fact that the self build mortgages they arrange allow for stage payments throughout the self-build process to be paid at the start of the stage meaning clients stay cash positive throughout their build.

Cooper concluded:
“These seminars in Huddersfield on 25th October, Bristol on 21st November, Basingstoke on 13th December are the first of a UK-wide roll out programme.”
