Project Costings

Lenders will require a detailed breakdown of the work and cost of your project split into its various stages. BuildStore will verify your costings to ensure that the property you wish to build is within your budget and construct the cashflow you require for your project.

Project Costings

How much will your project cost?
This will depend on a number of different factors, including the size of your new home, location, design, construction type and internal specification. There’s also a number of fees involved and a recommended contingency of 10-20% of your total budget to cover any unexpected costs – both of which should be factored into you overall costs.

A detailed breakdown of your build costs is required for your mortgage application, and is essential to make sure your plans are affordable, and can be completed on time and budget. For advice on project costings read our Build Cost Guide.

Remember to factor in the cost of your plot, as it’s likely to be the largest single purchase that you’ll make – typically around 30-40% of your overall budget.
