Snagging Survey in East Sussex

When purchasing a new build property, we would highly recommend considering a snagging survey. This detects any minor or major defects with the construction of the property.

It is wise to get this survey carried out as there could be numerous defects due to the possibility of things being missed during construction. There are enormous pressures put on builders and property developers to complete homes and meet strict deadlines, therefore during the construction process it is possible for faults to occur leading to potential issues or defects. A snagging report identifies any of these defects early, before they become a bigger issue or affect you once you completed the same and moved in.

Protect your financial investment with a snagging inspection. It provides peace of mind as you will know exactly what condition the property is in that you are buying. it also offers the opportunity for these issues to be resolved by the property developers before you complete on property and without you having to pay the cost.
