Im in the process of buying a property.
There has obviously been a wall removed between the living room and hallway. There is what i assume to be a large RSJ running where the wall was, its been boarded and plastered over so i cannot confirm it is an RSJ.
Solicitor has advised the seller can take out an insurance policy to cover the event that the council try and enforce retrospective work.
But im more concerned with work that I want to do myself. I plan on taking out another wall and if the current RSJ is not up to code then thats another major bit of work that i will need to pay for in order to get my own completion certificate.
Any suggestions on what i should do here?
