    Sub-standard construction. 14th Oct 16 at 12:45 PM
    Hi MSE!

    We have fallen in love with a property, this is our first time buy so we are newbies with regards to this.

    The property is brick first floor and timber framed second floor.

    Apparently this makes it hard to get a mortgage. This there any mortgage companies that often lend on this type of property that we could approach or is it better to go to a whole market broker?

    Thanks for your help

    In what way is it sub-standard?

    Or is it just not a standard construction type?

    If your question relates to which mortgage lenders are more likely to lend on this type of construcion, post on the mortgage board here.
