Hi all, We are also in the process of buying a BISF house and have found this to be an extremely useful website to gain information and make the process of purchasing a non traditional constructed house less scary.
Today the solicitor has come back saying the property doesn’t have a PRC certificate and seem to be trying to warn us off buying this house because of it, saying that we will struggle to sell it in the future!!
I have tried to do a bit of research and by what I can gather the PRC certificates were required for defective houses (Prefab?) and that a BISF house does not require this. Does anybody have experience of this or ahead this come up in their house purchase? It seems the Halifax isn’t requiring it, it is just the solicitor so it seems the mortgage will go through without it but I obviously don’t want to just go ahead if these houses needed them.
Any advice or experience will be greatly appreciated, we will be doing the seemingly common refurbishment but don’t want to be hit with structural problems as well.
Thanks in advance
