We are interested in a house purchase but have found out the 1990’s extension is timber frame that is not up to today’s standard. The main part of the house is 17th century and timber framed (this part is not a problem, how mad is that) but it is the extension that the mortgage companies do not like and will not pass the mortgage because of it.
My question is – can the timber framed 2 storey 1990’s extension be made up to today’s standard without pulling it down and rebuilding?
Should I walk away from this house??
Any thoughts would be appreciated
