'Mainstream self-build sector' could encourage electrical course take-up

The popularity of electrical courses could be set to rise if the UK's self-build sector becomes mainstream, as one source has predicted.

Jason Orme, editor at Homebuilding & Renovating, suggested that a new model could appear in which people pay for land that is already serviced and ready to be developed.

He pointed out that such customers may not make the same sort of profit as traditional self-builders, but many of the complexities will be removed and it could mean more individuals consider it as an option.

Mr Orme said: "There are several things that need to happen before it becomes mainstream and the key one is for the process to be de-risked."

The industry expert explained that traditionally self-builders tend to be "up against it" in terms of finding land, negotiating with construction workers and dealing with finances.

Last week, housing minister Grant Shapps called on major stakeholders in the mortgage market to help promote self-build projects.
