Engineer’s report cost

Recommended Posts

DH and I are looking at buying a property but need to get an engineer’s report on a part of the house after the building report noted a problem.

I expect this is a bit like how long is a piece of string, but does anyone know approximately how much this might cost? In hundreds or thousands?

depends what they are doing a report on and how much detail you have asked for in the report. 

DH is a structural engineer and most domestic/residential reports on structural inspections are in the vicinity of $500-$1500, depending on the scope of the inspection. If you are asking/expecting them to crawl into difficult roof spaces, or under buildings, it costs more. And a larger house costs more than a 1 bedroom flat, etc. It very much depends on structure of the building and age of the building.

Report will cost more if client has also requested engineer to include details on possible strategies/solutions to fix any problems.
