This type of loan allows funds to be withdrawn in stages, as you receive progress payment requests from your builder and tradespeople. The added benefit is that you only pay interest on the funds drawn down. There is also the added benefit of offset if you wish to take advantage of further interest savings. Please note an establishment fee of $600 applies. Interest only repayments for the construction period* and principal and interest repayments for the remainder of the loan term.

Frequently Asked Questions

  How is the loan drawn down?

The loan funds will be released progressively in line with your building contract and its payment schedule. These payments are known as “progress payments.” All progress payments will be paid directly to your builder upon your approval.

If you’re contributing funds to the construction, these funds will also need to paid in line with your building contract and its payment schedule.

  What documents do I need to supply Qudos Bank?

You’ll need to provide us with the following documents:

  • Copy of the Builder’s insurance policy
  • Copy of the Builder’s licence
  • Copy of the executed Fixed Price HIA/MBA Building Contract, which must include all components of construction
  • Copy of Council approved plans and specifications

It’s important you supply these as soon as possible to ensure processing your first progress payment isn’t delayed.

  What do I need to do to arrange a progress payment?

Before we can make a payment to your builder, you’ll need to provide us with:

  • Confirmation that your cash contribution towards the construction costs have been utilised (if applicable)
  • An invoice from your builder, signed by all borrowers stating that you authorise payment.

When the invoice is received, we’ll:

  • Have the property inspected (if required) and then if all is in order;
  • Draw the progress payment from the loan account and pay your builder directly.

We’re required to have your property inspected, so please be aware it could take up to 5 business days to process the payment. Cost of the inspection will need to be paid by you at the time an inspection is ordered.

  What do I need to do prior to the final payment being made?

Once construction is complete, you’ll need to provide us with:

  • A copy of the Council Occupancy Certificate or equivalent
  • A copy of your home building insurance.

If all items are satisfactory, your final payment will be processed and we’ll let you know what your repayments will be.
