    Fixing wrong financing plan

    Tax deductability of the interest of a loan depends on the PURPOSE of the loan. Not on the SECURITY. You can use the SECURITY of your existing house to get a loan for the PURPOSE of some other investment, this will be tax deductable.

    Building First Home

    I'm not saying you won't get useful answers here on somersoft, but I think you'll find a lot of really helpful in-depth answers over at the homeone forum. You'll also see a lot of members detailing their build process, which can give you a very useful heads-up.
