A snagging list survey is an inspection of a new build home that can identify problems and defects with the property.
According to the New Homes Review, more than nine out of 10 new homeowners said that they experienced snags or defects in their new property once they moved in and half of these people were unhappy with the service the developer provided to rectify the fault.
With a snagging list survey prior to completion, these problems can be identified earlier in the process giving you the information you need to ensure that defects are dealt with before you pick up the keys.
FEATURES: WHAT'S IN A SNAGGING LIST SURVEY?
- Our qualified surveyors will inspect the property and prepare a photographic schedule of items which have not been completed satisfactorily.
- This document can then be submitted to the developer so they can conclude any remaining items prior to completion.
- As an additional service, this report can include a valuation of the finished property.
- In some circumstances, a snagging list survey might be able to help to renegotiate with the developer.
