Lateral restraint strap installation

Hi we had this on our structural survey of a 1930s property we are hoping to buy in Manchester:

'To eliminate further lateral movement affecting the front and rear elevation a series of lateral restraint straps need to be installed to tie the affected wall back to the first floor joists.' Any ideas of price for this job? And would it involve much disruption/need for redecorating to the inside of the property? Thanks

"It would cost between £3000-4500 and would recommend walls to be plastered and painted again"

"A lot would depend on the structural engineer design but it would involve some disruption and need remedial work doing ie plastering etc the price would would range from £2000 to £4000 Hopefully that is some help"

"Hi

There are several lateral restraints out there so price would depend upon what surveyor has specified and asked for
Standard lateral fix
Heli fix through joists
Sok fix depending on wall material
Or a mixture
As you could have a price have work done and still not be in right place with what’s been done
Some of the above works are intrusive to decor and some can be done from external works
Hope this helps
Kindest regards
