Construction Loans

Assisting in the Purchase of Property and Construction of New Structures

There are generally two types of construction loans: a construction loan converted to permanent loan and a stand-alone construction loan. A construction to permanent loan is two loans in one. The loan pays for the construction of the home and is then converted to a permanent mortgage once construction is complete. A stand-alone construction loan finances the construction of the home, but after the completion of construction, the borrower must then obtain a mortgage to pay for the construction loan.

If you are building a home or commercial building in South Carolina, you will likely face a combination of risks and legal issues. It is important that you receive knowledgeable legal help as you navigate your construction loan. The attorneys at Weeks & Irvine, LLC, have provided construction loan and real estate legal services to clients throughout the state of South Carolina.

We can assist you in purchasing the lot, closing the construction loan and working with the bank throughout the disbursement period. Time requirements regarding construction loans are dictated by banks’ specifications: we can review lender documents, provide title updates and help you understand the responsibilities and obligations that will result from your loan.
