Q: I am in the process of buying a house and want to know where I can get a copy of the engineer's report for the extension built on to the house? The sellers say it was done 14 years ago and by previous owners before they bought the property. Are certificates/reports kept on file in the public domain? If not how can I access the report?

This report involves the consultant inspecting the property and assessing the condition. The report is usually a 'visual inspection' only, as the owner of the property may not grant permission to open up a section of the building, lifting floor boards or removing plaster, etc.
