Structural Engineers Reports
Why Do I Need a Structural Engineerís Report?
A structural engineer's report is an independent opinion by a qualified engineer and normally relates to an alleged defect that is potentially serious. The report will present background information and reasoning to justify the report's conclusions. The report will also outline what - if any - work is required to stabilise the property.
A report is normally requested when the buyer's bank have had an inconclusive valuation report. If a valuer feels that there may be a serious defect, he/she will decline to give a valuation until they have an expert's report. Many homeowners decide themselves to have an expert's report on an issue troubling them.
