Professional Snagging Inspections Crawley

If you are purchasing a new build property then it's worth considering a snagging inspection.These surveys are used to highlight any defects or unfinished work on new build residential properties. This is something that has become increasingly necessary with the ever-increasing speed at which new build properties are constructed. The pressure on developers and builders to finish developments within short timescales has led to many new build homes suffering from on-going issues. This is where a snagging survey is crucial.

A snagging survey is designed to identify potential defects or issues within a property, ranging from minor decorative concerns to more significant structural problems. When it comes to such a large investment such as purchasing a home a snagging survey is an essential step in the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Inspected in a Snagging Survey?

Our snagging surveys inspect all areas of your property, both the interior and exterior. Our surveyors will assess a range of minor and major faults.

Your Survey will assess the following:

  • Build quality
  • Brickwork
  • Loft space
  • Plastering, paintwork and tiling
  • Levelling of ceilings, walls and floors
  • Groundworks
  • Standard of finish of the property
  • Guttering and roofing
  • Doors and windows

When should a Snagging Survey be Carried out?

We always advise that a survey is undertaken prior to moving in as it allows you time to negotiate with the builder or developer. On many occasions a snagging survey can still be undertaken within 2 years of your warranty date, but it's always advisable to check this timeframe as it sometimes differs between developers.

Our snagging inspections are thorough and look for everything from costly subsidence to easily fixed leaking taps. Following the inspection a report will be produced within 5 days and this will include technical information regarding the construction of your property. We will happily send the report to your builder or developer if requested.
