engineered hardwood around a bannister

The bannister is attached to the sub floor as it was carpeted before. Can we cut the bannisters and slide the engineered under?

Depending on the way the newells were installed, yes you can. You can detach them from the top rail and they will either pull out or unscrew from the floor. Drill holes in the new flooring to reseat them but make the holes 1/4 in larger to allow for 'floating'
