    Breakdown of Fees

    Hi, Yes not cheap by the way the mortgage is areas as there was only one lender in Scotland that would do advance payment and they would not lend due to location.

    Yes I agree wish I never went with buildstore as they are not very good and very expensive with fees that were not mentioned.

    Site Insurance not Starting for 6 month

    We I have purchased it and got a good deal I think. Paid £342 for a 18 month cover and the insurance will convert to cover the build when I start. The will also take the £342 off the cost of the new insurance as long as I do not claim. This was through Self Build UK

    Checked with Mortgage company they want full site insurance

    Site Insurance not Starting for 6 month

    There is no liability insurance on the land at the minute so if someone wander on to the land and hurts themselves then most likely not insured. I have no issue in getting liability insurance but full site insurance seems overkill
  12. Hi Can any give advise please. I am due to complete on my land today and the mortgage company has asked for proof of site insurance. I have had a couple of quotes for 12 months and it is about £700 The issue I have is that I am not starting work for 12 month and do not want to insure a remote field in the middle of no where until I start work. Understand I need public liabilty insurance incase someone wonders onto the land and hurts themselves Can anyone advise how I can reduce this cost? thanks

    Hi Dave sorry to answer your questions How many properties? 1 Single or 3 phase supply requested? Single What rating (how many KVA) have you asked for or been offered? 20 KVA How far from the 3 phase overhead to your plot? I would say about 100 meters Is that going to be overhead or underground? if so who is doing the digging? Underground and I will do the civils Is the 11KV overhead being altered in any way or just a transformer and your connection? It may well require an upgraded pole or twin poles for the transformer) 11Kv work will require a partial network shutdown, that is not done live. they have not stated thanks
