Thinking About Self Build?

01/20/2017Jason Cadogan

The Benchmark Self Build Scheme


At Benchmark we really look after our customers and use a network of services to benefit our SME contractors. Recently we produced a recession survival kit, where our doors were open to assist and utilise the benefits of scale of our 1200 live trading accounts.

Customers were encouraged to use our resources in all matters of Debt Collection, Marketing, Tender Writing, Health and Safety and Human Resource facilities.


We can help you on the right track to finding a mortgage for you whether you are building your own house, renovating or simply looking for a better rate on your existing house while you plan your project


Accurate planning and managing your budget is of the utmost importance. The process should start before you even buy your plot of land and shouldn’t finish until you’ve paid the final contractor and reclaimed the VAT on your building materials

You’ll need to spend significant amounts of time planning everything down to the smallest detail – because today it is more difficult than ever to negotiate extra lending if you overspend in the early stages of the build


As a self builder or renovator, you’ll be investing significant time and money into building your dream home – doesn’t it make good sense to ensure that you’ve got adequate protection in place both during and after build.

Self Build

f you decide to self build you won’t be alone: up to 20,000 people build their own homes in the UK each year and many others will carry out a renovation project or conversion. From take off to product advise, we are able to take you hand in hand through the site procurement, giving scheduled deliveries on time and when the site requires them. Having tradesmen waiting is a crime and we realise that time is money.

Plot Search

With thousands of opportunities to choose from it won’t take you long to find your perfect plot of land or project and Benchmark will be with you every step of the way.

We save you time by only listing genuine building opportunities where planning permission has been granted and work closely with the local council.
