Just some advice really. Afew years back myself and my father knocked a wall down in the small room of my house to make it bigger. The wall supported a purlin above via a few bricks and a wooden post (1930s style). We acro'd the few bricks and post above and then inserted a suitable galvanised RSJ from the builders merchants. (im afraid I didnt have any calculations but I recall the lintel did look overkill for the 6" span it was covering). This was about 4 years ago with no problems. Wanting to move to a bigger house we have recently had an offer on our property for sale. The question is this, will this affect the sale of the house or will an indemnity insurance be required? This was a fault on my part as I presumed a load bearing wall was considered a wall above what you are about to remove (or am I wrong on this?) As the purlin was sitting on the wall above I presumed the old 3"x3" post supporting this was there to eliminate sag in the beam. Will I need to restore the wall back?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you kindly.
