However, the key point for those looking to purchase with secured finance is that will very likely require a specialist broker to explore any options. If there are such options available, they will likely be at higher than mainstream rates. The reason for this is that the property is located above commercial premises, and our experience dictates that this will not ''fit' criteria for high street lenders. Accordingly, this is why we have described the property as ''most suited to cash buyers. Prospective purchasers are advised to consult their own mortgage advisor at the earliest opportunity.ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE (EPC) - For the purpose of this sale, the property has been viewed as EPC exempt, given that it forms part of a Grade II Listed building.
