Low-cost housing grants?
Question from Thom updated on 28th November 2012:
I have a two house, five lot subdivision with resource consent in Fairfield , Hamilton City. I am interested in developing by completing subdivision and building or placing three three bedroom homes on the additional sections. These will be in the $320,000 to $340,000 range. Are there any grants or help available to help with low cost homes construction in Hamilton?
Our expert Hamish Firth responded:
Generally there are no grants available to individual land owners. If you are intending to sell the properties and are having trouble financing the whole project there are a number of companies who help put new homes buyers together with land owners and house builders.
