Self Build In Belfast

Recommended Posts


I posted previously about looking for a house in South East Belfast having recently got married. We have viewed about 10 houses, most of which were 3 bed semis, with a tiny box room. We were interested in one detached house that needed a fairly large amount of work, but it ended up going for nearly 50k over its asking price!

Due to the slightly underwhelming stock currently available, I am starting to look into self-build options. I'm a civil engineer, so have a bit of a grasp for what's involved, but would appreciate some advice from you lot. Specifically, I'd appreciate advice on:

- Availability of self-build mortgages from local lenders (Dankse, Ulster Bank, etc.).

- Reasonable price to pay for a reasonable plot of land in a decent area (seems to be a VERY wide range of asking prices about)

- Approximate build costs for a 3/4 bed detached house (~£1000/m2?)

- Any recommendations for Contractors to contact/ avoid.

Many thanks!
