A snagging survey is a vital step to purchasing a new build home

Snagging Surveys in East Dean

Snagging surveys should be undertaken if you are buying a new build property to detect whether there are any defects or unfinished work.

If you are going through the process of buying a newly built home, especially those off-plan - a snagging survey is vital to the process. Currently, there is a huge demand for property developers and builders to build houses quickly to reach tight and rigid deadlines. This means there is often many defects in the completed properties which can be identified via a snagging survey.

Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make so it is vital that your investment is protected. A snagging survey gives you the assurance that issues can be resolved without you having to bear the cost. We provide a full report which outlines issues in the exterior and interior of your property. This can be passed onto your property developers to be rectified.

When Will I Receive my Report?

We product a detailed report of our findings and a copy can be forwarded to your builder - all within 5 working days of the inspection. Your comprehensive report will also include all the technical information regarding the construction of your new property.

When Should I Have a Survey Carried Out?

We advise that a snagging survey is undertaken prior to completion, so that any defects can be identified and fixed before your move in date. If this is not possible then we can carry out a snagging inspection within 2 years of the warranty date, dependent on your builders T&Cs.

Should you desire a revisit from your dedicated building surveyor after your building developer has addressed and rectified any issues, we are more than happy to accommodate (a fixed fee will be applied).
