Professional Snagging Report East Sussex
If you are purchasing a new build home - then we would advise going ahead with a snagging report prior to purchase.
There is a huge demand for housing and this means developments are being completed as quickly as possible. As a result people are noticing unfinished work, defects of faults with their new build property. A snagging survey will identify any potential defects or issues with the property. All small, large defects and unfinished work will be highlighted within the report.
This report can be passed on to the builders of developers of your new build property so they can rectify the issues before you move in. Potential faults can range from small decorative issues to major structural problems. Buying a home is likely to be the biggest financial investment you make so a snagging survey is essential to protect that investment.

We advise that the inspection take place prior to completion and your move in date. However, you can have a snagging report carried out up to 2 years of the warranty date (these time frames may differ so it is always worth double checking with your developer). This makes it simpler if any issues are identified that need fixing prior to you moving in.
