My daughter has a house which she bought 5 years ago which the survey says was traditional construction.  She has sold the house but the buyers mortgage company says it is Non Standard Construction.  It is a terrace house and the adjacent property is listed by Birmingham City Council as BHAM_LRISE.  

Can anyone tell me what this means please.  We believe it is standard construction but with warm air heating, which may be why the council list it as none standard

My guess is that this property is most likely to be of PRC construction such as BISON or any other number of systems, as low-rise flats or terraces were common construction types for many 60's and 70's developers. Crosswall properties can also be described as low-rise. It's a shame that Birmingham Council didn't publish the actual construction name, instead of the blanket low-rise label.
