Snagging Surveys in Lewes
Snagging inspections are used to identify any defects or unfinished work on new build residential properties. With the increasing push to build new homes, developers and builders are under more and more pressure to complete housing developments as quickly as possible. This has unfortunately led to new build homes suffering from issues and parts of the builds on occasions being unfinished. This is where a snagging survey comes in. It inspects all areas of your property, usually prior to you moving in, to identify any minor or major defects, allowing you to resolve these issues with the builder or developer.
Southdown Surveyors are a team of RICS accredited chartered surveyors. We work across Heathfield, Uckfield and the surrounding area of East Sussex. Highly experienced in building surveys and snagging inspections, our surveyors regularly inspect new build properties to identify defects that range from costly subsidence to easily fixed leaking taps.
Part of our service includes a thorough snagging report. This will be generated and provided to you within 5 days of the inspection. Outlined within this report will be a range of technical information regarding the construction of your property. If required, our report can also be sent to your builder or developer. Our service doesn't stop there and our surveyors will be available to run through the report and clarify any aspects which you require further information on.
Ideally a snagging survey is most effective when carried out prior to moving in your property. It allows a negotiation with the builders / developers and gives them time to resolve any issues prior to your moving date. The survey can however be undertaken within 2 years of your warranty date - always check this time frame with your developer as terms can vary.
