All these professionals have given you sound advice - you want someone who knows what they are doing to help you - you do not want to assume anything with an issue like this. Even though it looks major, it could be no big deal - or it could be evidence of serious mistakes during constructon that are only the "tip of the ice berg" so to speak for things to come.
I have significant experience diagnosing building structures for over 20 years, including specifying repairs for building defects alone and in conjunction with proven experts I work with such as structural and geotechnical engineers. I do not charge my real estate clients for any of the extra service I provide such as this type consulting. It could be worth moving forward with the right type of engineer based on conditions and causation, or it might be a blatantly serious and costly problem where my best advice to you would be to run from this property - obviouly I would have to see it to give you more insight.
