How it works.

Designed for pre-built homes


Prebuilt is similar to a normal construction loan. The difference is, it covers prefabricated homes that are built in a factory and transported on to your site. This is why prefab homes are quicker and more cost-effective to build.

With a pre-built home, there are a few extra requirements to protect you financially. These include:

  • Additional insurance cover during the different stages of the construction (i.e. the initial build and transportation to site)
  • Some requirements for your builder to meet before construction begins.
