Our structural engineer’s specific defect report is recommended where there is only one localised structural issue, such as a single crack in a wall or a bulging wall.
Our Chartered Structural Engineer will carry out an inspection and identify whether the defect is a structural problem and offer guidance on options for repairs and remedial works and the estimated cost of any repairs.
A specific defect report is suitable if you believe the rest of the property is sound, but you have concerns about one aspect, such as:
• Crack in a wall or ceiling
• Sagging roof timbers or floor
• A building regulations issue, often without certification paperwork – removal of a chimney breast or wall.
• Subsidence threat from trees or drainage problems
