Could you help?
My parents employed a builder roughly 15 years ago to remove a wall in their living room to open it up. The builder said that no forms or permissions were required, so being naive and trusting their builder, they left it at that. My dad did say that an RSJ was used. Does that indicate the wall was load bearing?
The issue is that my parents are part exchanging their house with a builder and they are worried that when the surveyor come to access the house, the wall will become an issue. Should the builder have organised the appropriate paperwork? Will this be an issue for the survey and the sale of the house?
They are getting older now and are really stressed about this wall!
Any advice, greatfully received!
