My Builder & Me

What do I need from my builder?

  • Contract for the purchase of the land, if you do not already own it.
  • Contract with a properly licensed general contractor. The general contractor will need to provide a sworn contractor’s statement to the bank.
  • The sworn contractor’s statement must include a listing of all subcontractors, their addresses, their portion of the contract, and the nature of the work they are responsible for completing.
  • Certificate of liability insurance for the builder and a Builders Risk Insurance policy during the construction phase of your new home.
  • Building permit
  • Plans(blueprints) and specifications for your new home.
  • Once the bank has received all these items, we will order an appraisal.

How Does the Construction Process Work?

  • The borrower will need to deposit the money necessary to complete the construction with HTNB that is not being provided by the construction loan
  • The borrower and the bank will close the loan. The loan documents are standard mortgage documents. All loan fees will be collected at the time of the closing.
  • The contractor will submit requests for payment to the bank or its designee. An inspection will be done to make sure the work is completed and then the funds will be disbursed.
  • Sometimes projects change. You, the builder, and the bank should discuss changes and the costs of those changes prior to making the change to make sure that the cost is covered in your contract,  your loan, or with other funds.

What Else Should I Know About The Construction Process?

  • You will need to pay the interest outstanding on the loan each month. This is calculated based on the amount of the funds that have actually been disbursed for the construction. You do not have to pay principal payments during the construction.
  • You may need to pay additional inspection fees if changes were made to the original plans that require additional payouts or inspections.
  • You will need to pay for hazard insurance during the construction period. The bank will not escrow insurance or real estate taxes during this time.
  • If your property is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area as defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we will set up an escrow account to collect flood insurance premiums. This is mandatory for all homes build in a Special Flood Hazard Area.
