FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I’m planning on building/altering my house, do I need an Engineer?
If your building site is steep, has a history of filling, instability and may be subject to flooding, or overland flow, you will need the specific input of Thurlow Engineers.
Most alterations and nearly all new houses need an Engineer to calculate large span supports and specific bracing. Contact our Engineers to determine your needs.
Should I buy that house?
The purchase of your house is the major investment of most peoples’ lives. Our Engineers can undertake a full and independent check of your property and provide an Engineers report as to the structural condition of the house you intend to purchase.
Often illegal and unsafe work has been undertaken which is by its nature not noted in any Lim report.
What is a Lim report?
This is a report your Solicitor will invariably advise you to obtain on the property you seek to purchase. It is prepared by and obtained for Council and shows their records on the property report.
Illegal works are not normally noted, should you suspect any unauthorised works you should contact our Engineers.
