Do I need planning consent?

In most instances you will require planning consent for you Wee House. The Wee House Company can assist you at all stages of the planning process. We can take care of everything- from preparing drawings to handling the building warrant.

Methods of payment/ when is payment due?

There is a stage payment process in place for puchasing a Wee House. In most cases those stages will be as follows:

- £2,000 reserves you home.

- The balance of 10% of the sales price is due when planning consent is granted and manufacture begins.

- 65% of the sales price is due when the house is completed at our manufacturing base.

-The final 25% is due when the house is completed on the plot.

Deposits are non-refundable and must be paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer - we cannot accept credit or debit cards.

Are your Wee Houses suitable for mortgage lending?

Yes. Every Wee House undergoes stringent assessment to ensure that it is built to comply with UK building regulations for new dwellings. Each house is also approved by an independent structural engineer and can be covered by a 10 year structural warranty from Premier Guarantee. All of the UK's major lenders accept Premier Guarantee's warranties as part of their lending criteria.

Due to the staged payment process in place for Wee Houses and the fact that they are built on the customer's own plot, they will require a self-build mortgage. We recommend seeking advice from independent mortgage adviser Louise Murphy at Murphy Scoular who has prior experience in this area.
