What are listed buildings?
Listed buildings are those which have been designated as having special architectural or historical importance. If you plan to purchase a listed building, you have a duty to keep the character of the original building intact and to maintain it in good condition. 92% of all listed buildings in England are Grade 2 Listed, which means that if you are looking for a mortgage for a listed building it’s likely that it will fall into this category.
Mortgages for Grade II Listed Buildings – points to bear in mind
Get a full structural survey, preferably from a surveyor who has experience in historic buildings. Beautiful as they are, older buildings can also have more problems with existing structural damage or be made from unusual materials (such as thatch) which could make getting a mortgage more complicated. If it transpires that the building you want to buy needs extensive work doing to it, you may need to get a specialist self-build mortgage.
Because there are strict regulations on what you can and can’t do to listed buildings, you will also probably need to speak to a local conservation officer in order to make sure that any repairs or alterations you want to carry out are legal. Having this reassurance in place may help to convince potential mortgage lenders that you are a reliable borrower who has given through to the future sales potential of the property.
