    Bank of Ireland - Structural Survey

    Bank of Ireland - Structural Survey 9th Jul 17 at 9:40 PM
    Hi everyone

    I'm in the process of buying an end terrace in Greater Belfast. House appears to be in generally good structural condition. However BOI have just carried out a valuation survey and require me to instruct a structural engineer to carry out a building survey as there's evidence of sloping floors on the first floor.

    This is all new to me and was just wondering if anyone can recommend a structural engineer, have looked for quotes but they all cost an absolute fortune. Possibly thinking of pulling out of the sale.

    I hope to hear from someone soon.

    Thanks

    You're probably looking at £500 plus.
