What does traditional bricks and concrete construction mean?

I am hoping to buy an ex council flat on the Isle of Dogs built in the late 60s. It is described as being traditional bricks and concrete construction. Does this mean a standard concrete foundation with bricks and mortar on top or something else that is non standard?

  • It's a flat, so could be reinforced concrete frame with brick walls. You need a surveyor's opinion.

  • Hi, Surveyors usually refer to ‘brick and tile’ as standard, not concrete. You need ask them what they mean. Some lenders won’t lend on concrete. Good luck. Jeff.
