Snagging Surveyors in Lewes
If you are in the process of purchasing a new build property it is advisable to have a professional surveyor complete a snagging survey (also know as new build inspection survey). A snagging survey is a thorough inspection of the internal and external construction of a new build property. We will produce an inspection report demonstrating any minor through to major faults with your new build property. New build inspection surveys are becoming progressively sort after due to the increasing pressure on builders and developers to build homes quickly - leading to poor or unfinished work. The report leaves you equipped with the necessary details of the issues needed to be resolved prior to moving in.
We recommend snagging surveys to be conducted before moving day, as it gives you the time to negotiate and discuss with the builders and developers on rectifying any issues found. However, they can often be completed within 2 years of the properties warranty date. Timescales can vary so this must be confirmed with your developer.
Your snagging report will be produced within 5 days of the snagging inspection. If requested, we can provide a copy of this report to the property builder or developer.
