We would strongly advise that all essential works recommended by a Structural Engineer should be inspected and certified to protect the long term insurance and saleability aspects of the property.
Your Structural Engineers Report and Completion of Works Certificate should then be stored with your deeds to provide an accurate record for the future. If your Structural Engineers report is required for mortgage purposes, your mortgage/insurance company are likely to insist that an Engineers Completion of Works Certificate is issued to cover the essential works recommended and will require sight of the documentation to release any monies / retentions due.
If you are unsure as to whether you require a Certificate for mortgage/insurance purposes, please contact your mortgage company / insurer direct.
The price of a certificate varies according to the extent of work to be inspected, prices start from £225 + VAT
People bought a certificate because:-
- Their mortgage lender required a certificate
- They wished to protect long term insurance and future saleability
