Home Building Finance Ireland (HBFI) was incorporated in December 2018 to provide funding at market rates for commercially viable residential developments in the State. Its establishment was part of a wider response to Ireland’s housing supply shortage that, over recent years, has seen supply falling short of the estimated demand. Home Building Finance Ireland (Lending) DAC (HBFI(L)) is a wholly owned subsidiary of HBFI and is its operating (lending) entity.
HBFI offers a number of different funding products depending on the type of residential development being undertaken. Further information on the different product types is available here.
HBFI operates as a private company wholly owned by the Minister for Finance and was formed under the Companies Act 2014 and the Home Building Finance Ireland Act 2018. HBFI is an independent legal entity with its own Board and a commercial mandate, providing development funding to residential development projects. Its aim is to help address the shortfall of funding available in the open market.
