    Hi all,

    Can someone please answer the following question.

    If I have a construction loan of 700K, though total build cost is 770K, when would the bank expect me to put in the shortfall of 70K.

    Would it be straight off the bat, as in the deposit and part of 1st progress payment, or could it be delayed till the final payment?

    Most likely, bank would want your to put your money first .

    So 1st payment of 5% deposit
    And part of second payment stage.

    Generally they want you to put your money in first

    Has the bank just lent you the GST exclusive value of the contract?
    They know you can claim back the GST so let you pay that component and get it back from the ATO each month/quarter.

    No unfortunately the Val's didn't stack up, so I had to come up with the shortfall, but will refinance once complete.

    You contribute your money first - the bank ain't putting up a cent until your contribution has been met.

    Cheers

    Thanks Jamie, I had a feeling that would be the case, just wanted to find out if there was a way around it, but obviously not.
