Snagging Surveys for Properties in Battle and Sussex
Snagging surveys are undertaken to determine whether there are any defects (both minor and major) or unfinished work on a new property. If you are buying a new build home, especially those off-plan, snagging is an important consideration. The current demands on property developers and builders means increasing pressure is placed upon companies meeting extremely tight and rigid deadlines. This can often result in defects that without a snagging survey would not be identified.
Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will make in your lifetime so it is important your investment is protected - a snagging inspection offers you additional reassurance and allows issues to be resolved without you having to bear the cost.

During a snagging inspection our surveyors use the latest equipment and technology to identify any faults or work that is incomplete.

Your report will also contain technical information on the construction of your property.
When should I have a Snagging Survey?
It is recommended that snagging surveys take place before completion, this simply means any defects identified can be rectified prior to you moving in. If this isn't possible then a snagging inspection can usually be undertaken within 2 years of the warranty date.
