    LIFT criteria 13th Oct 18 at 7:53 AM
    I have a house rejected due to room size.
    For a room to count as an apartment is has to be 6 meters square.
    The room in question is 5.22.

    Has anyone got this problem and is there a way round it?

    Iím losing out on houses all the time... itís impossible to meet the number of apartments with house value.

    Are you posting from America? (Use of 'apartment' instead of 'flat').

    If so, I regret that we in the the UK will probably be unable to help you.

    I think the OP might be referring to the Low-cost Initiative for First Time Buyers (LIFT) scheme.

    Whatever's going on, more info is needed if this is going to be anything more than a spleen-vent for the OP.
