Snagging is the process of identifying defects or unfinished work, usually on new homes and new properties.
At Southdown Surveyors, we have many years of experience in inspecting new homes and an in-depth knowledge of the snagging process. New builds commonly suffer from defects with developers working to extremely tight deadlines, making snagging inspections increasingly worthwhile to help ensure home buyers receive the highest level of workmanship. As experienced Chartered Surveyors we are able to identify faults, both traditional in nature (like subsidence) to the more subtle faults (like leaking showers).
Snagging should ideally be carried out prior to legal completion, allowing the builder more time to rectify snags before your moving date. However, snagging can normally be carried out within the first 2 years of the warranty date, it simply means any issues that arise will need to be rectified around you and your furniture. Please check the warranty or developer’s terms and conditions as these may differ.
We will provide you with a professional Snagging Report which will highlight any minor or major defects, whilst outlining technical information on the construction of your property. Our Chartered Surveyors can undertake snagging inspections quickly and our reports are issued within 5 working days of the inspection. A copy of the report will be sent to you and another directly to the builder, if you wish. Following the report, our Chartered Surveyors will be available to provide ongoing advice and support when you need it.
