Directions to property
Please note: If you require a mortgage, conventional high street lenders are currently mostly lending against standard construction only. However, we have confirmed with a local mortgage broker who has dealt successfully with similar types of build before that the property should be mortgageable, though the number of potential lenders could be more limited than usual. We are happy to provide the mortgage broker’s contact details prior to any viewings if requested.
