  • It would be dependent on the individual lenders criteria.

  • If you do a Google search you will find a few companies who will provide a mortgage on a ‘none standard construction home’. It would be a good idea to get quotes from as many lenders as possible to find the best deal.

  • It depends on who the lender is, however there are a large number of timber frame and cedar clad houses in Dumfries & Galloway, you need to also bare in mind most houses when built these days are timber frames and breeze block construction which are then rendered.
