Reliable Snagging Inspections
A snagging survey is an inspection undertaken by a qualified professional which aims to identify defects within new constructions. It is predominantly used for new build properties, particularly those purchasing off-plan. It inspects any defects or unfinished work which could be caused by the demand of housing going up and property investors having to keep to strict deadlines. Things can be missed and defects can occur. A snagging survey has become an essential aspect of buying a new home so that buyers are protected when making such an investment.
