Can you get a mortgage on a flat roof property?

Can you please tell me what the difference is between a flat roof to a tiled roof? And can you get a mortgage?

  • Most houses have tiled roofs, they are pitched (triangular) and are tiled with slate or ceramic tiles. A flat roof is literally, flat and covered with felt and tar. A flat roof will usually need to be replaced every 15 years or so, a tiled roof will usually last longer. Mortgage companies will lend on a property with a flat roof (many blocks of flats have flat roofs for example) however you would need to check with your lender and they may for example insist on a roof inspection.
