Things to consider about the AMP Construction Loan

This loan is designed to finance new constructions on land you own or to help you buy land for building. This loan allows you to make progress payments at different stages of the building process, which can help you save interest, as you’re only charged interest on the amounts you’ve withdrawn.

You can also apply for this loan as a low doc loan or in the name of a company or a trust.

Features of the AMP Construction Loan

  • Loan amount. You can borrow between $40,000and $850,000 at 90% LVR with this loan.
