A Structural Engineers’ Report inspects the structural condition of a building. We offer two types of structural reports for our clients, lenders, and general surveyors, depending on their requirements.
A Structural Engineer’s report is more specialised than a surveyor’s report. Most structural engineering reports are commissioned when there are concerns about cracking or movement in a building as these could indicate a structural problem, such as damage to the foundations and should be inspected by a professional, fully qualified Structural Engineer.
Our reports are for clients buying a property but we are also instructed by homeowners who want a report before putting their house on the market, or simply need peace of mind.
We offer two types of structural reports. The first is a GENERAL MOVEMENT REPORT which is a comprehensive inspection of all the main loadbearing walls inside and out, to judge the overall structural soundness of the building from a cracking and movement point of view.
The second is a DEFECT INSPECTION REPORT. This is for assessing a specific issue and therefore costs less than a more extensive General Movement Report. This is also known as a Specific Structural Inspection or SSI for short
All our reports are carried out by one of our fully qualified, professional Chartered Structural Engineer C Eng MIStructE, which is required by institutional lenders and insurance companies.
