In Australia 3 out of 5 owner-builders will go significantly over budget when building or undergoing substantial home renovations. As a result, they have insufficient funds to complete their home.
The Banks know this and are reluctant to lend – even to trained, licensed and experienced builders – because of the high risks of budget blowouts.
Even if you do manage to obtain finance, your Bank will probably require a Bill of Quantities each month. This is a highly detailed breakdown of the costs associated with the construction project and includes the material costs as well as the labour costs.
It’s a time consuming activity that has rigorous requirements. Very often owner-builders discover the burden of completing and submitting the monthly Bill of Quantities is too much so they hire an expert to do it for them. This adds further pressures on the construction budget.
