    This sounds like our old house and I think is called Lang easy construction.
    Years ago nobosy would lend on them but with so many mortgage companies nowadays more will. The west brom and 1st national and gmac all will.
    If you let your brokers know upfront what the constuction so they should be able to check in advance to see if a company will lent on such a property.

    Well if you can't beat them A, join them!!! (not literally of course) will help burn off those last few pounds and probably give you cause to utilise that third bedroom in nine months!

    We moved yesterday, was a nightmare. will drop you a line and tell you about it, along with some photos of the new house

    Good to see you are still experiencing the humorous c-ck ups of the last derranged seller!

    Hi Millie,
    I looked at this type of house myself recently and did a bit of research, as I had fears over mortgages etc.
    Concrete with a brick skin - this could be concrete sectional of some type - Maybe Cornish, or Reema, type,that has been re-bricked.
    Other types are cast in situ concrete with cavity, Laing Easyform for example
    Some of these types are very difficult ot mortgage and others relatively easy.
    Probably best to find out what construction the house is ( ask the owners or look at the links I posted) and then ring round the b-socs- I found the Skipton to be very helpful.
    I decided against in the end as I was worrid about how easy it wouold be to sell on eventually !.
    Do you have a picture of the house ?

    I had a different problem with a non-brick commercial property. I was going to buy a paper shop, but it blew away!
