Build it through our BUILD NOW PAY LATER All-in-One service. This is tailor-fitted to land (or uncompleted building) owners wanting to build or complete their house or commercial property today but lack the resources to do so.
We develop and/or construct your project for you with our own funds in record time, typically less than 3months for most residential projects (mostly less than 2 months) without compromising on quality, and you only pay in one-time payment or instalments up to 30 years.
By virtue of our target user groups, you're expected to be able to read, speak, write and understand basic english to follow simple user instructions, or seek independent financial and/or legal advice from a qualified professional before using our services - If you can't do either, then you can't use our services.
A. NO UPFRONT FEES
It is MANDATORY to comply with all our required Pre-Construction Searches & Reports but NOT COMPUSLORY to pay us to do those searches or get those reports for you as you can do them yourself.
In fact you can hand over your fully-qualified land or uncompleted project to us and get a fully completed move-in ready project to you in less than 3 months (after procuring a valid building permit) without paying a dime to us !!
B. ZERO DOWN-PAYMENT
There's no requirement for you to make any down-payment or periodic payment as the project progresses, as you may have it with other providers. We use our own funds to start and/or complete your approved project for you tied to pre-agreed repayment plans: one-time payment after delivery or instalment payment up to 30yrs for salaried workers (public or private sector) and registered business owners (or self-employed), but up to 10yrs repayment period for all commercial projects.
C. MANDATORY LAND OWNERSHIP
Without you owning land, free and clear (unencumbered), you cannot use this service.
If you have already bought your land and do not have the funds to construct and/or develop the property, you apply to us, and your application is almost always guaranteed so long as the land with the property to be constructed on is without any encumbrances and adequate as a collateral, together with the yet to be constructed property. In order words, this is like design & build plus financing in-situ.
The land for which the project is to be constructed on MUST be in the personal name(s) of the applicant or a registered business or company the applicant is a shareholder of and not third-parties.
The only acceptable Proof of Land Owner is a Registered Land Title Certificate or Indenture/ Deed and NOT receipts of your payment for the land.
Please don't apply or contact us if you don't have land in your own name(s).
D. NO 'DEAD CAPITAL' POLICY
We only start or take over a project to completion, and not stop mid-way, as it's expensive to start-stop-start and stop projects.

We always allocate enough funds to complete projects - we won't start if we can't complete it.
E. PROJECT AS COLLATERAL / SECURITY
No additional collateral required for this Development & Construction On Credit Service - Your land and yet-to-be constructed building will serve as the collateral. If customers refuse to honour their loan obligations, the property will be sold to offset outstanding loan balance, but not without exhausting our Repayment Assistance Programme already in place.
Please take note that, if you do not keep up with repayment agreements or avail of the provisions of our repayment assistance programmes, we will sell of your completed project to recoup our investments.
F. DETAILED PLAN OF THE PROJECT
