Mortgageable construction?

My mum purchased a property in CO15 2SB 3 years ago. She was a cash buyer so didn't have a survey or any of the usual searches. She is wanting to sell the property to me in the coming years but I don't think it is mortgageable as I believe it is (or at least some of it) is single brick construction. Is there any way to find out?

  • This road is a mix of traditional construction, part traditional and some non traditional. If the suspected single skin wall has a window, opening it and measuring outside to in will indicated if single skin. It maybe possible to build an additional skin although this could prove cost prohibitive. CO15 is an area well known for non traditional and a cash buyer maybe the best alternative.

  • Hello - I also think another cash buyer would probably be the best option here as most lenders would not want to securitise against a single brick property. However, if you search "non-standard construction", there are a number of brokers that might be able to help.
