Additional Guidelines

      • OWNER-BUILDER: Allowed. $300,000 general liability rider required on course of construction insurance. A letter of qualification required, stating by what means, contacts or experience qualifies the borrowers to build their own house.
      • APPRAISAL: Utah only – CCS will order the appraisal. CCS needs the cost breakdown, final set of plans, and payment at the time appraisal is ordered.
      • TERM: 6 – 9 months for builder projects only. 12 months for owner builder projects. 12 months for jumbo or canyon area projects.
      • EXTENSIONS: One 3 month extension can be granted for homes not finished within the original term. An extension fee of 0.50% of the original principal amount will be charged to the borrower.
      • MODIFICATION FEE: A 3% modification fee will be charged anytime a loan is paid off by someone other than the original borrower, or the property is offered for sale before the construction loan is paid off.
      • CURRENT HOME: The borrower’s current house payment will be included in ratio calculations. Can be omitted on a case-by-case basis, upon compensating factors and existing equity in current residence.
      • ELIGIBLE BORROWERS: Individuals only. Non-owner co-applicants not allowed.
      • ELIGIBLE PROPERTIES: Owner occupied, primary residences only. Second homes allowed.
      • CONTINGENCY: 5% minimum contingency fund required.
      • INTEREST RESERVE: Required interest reserve account is built into the soft costs of the loan. This account is calculated by the following formula:
          • Loan with lot payoff: (loan amount x 65% x rate x term/12)
          • Loan without lot payoff: (loan amount x 50% x rate x term/12)

        This account will pay the interest due during the term of the construction loan.

      • BUILDER PRE-SOLD (LOAN IN THE BUILDER’S NAME): Available on case by case basis.
