Snagging list surveys are for new build properties. They are an inventory of
things you are not happy with or that have not been finished by the
Our qualified surveyors visit your property and prepare a photographic schedule
of items which have not been completed satisfactorily by the building contractor.
This document should be submitted to the developer so they can conclude any remaining
items prior to the completion of your purchase.
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.
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.
Professional, efficient surveyors. Get the job done
in a timely manner, had our survey back within 5 days
of inspection. All team members I spoke with (Tiffany
and Billy) were really lovely. Highly recommend. :)
I have only just started working with Stephen and he
has already demonstrated the high levels of customer
attention and dedication that this company has. The
first impression he has caused is such that made me
write this review. I have no doubt that the continuous
service will be of same level. Looking forward to
working further with Stephen. Well done!
Lease extension - I found Daniel Grove very
professional and had an excellent understanding
of all aspects relating to this transaction.
Advice was invaluable, and it was nice to come
across someone who did exactly what they said
they were going to do.
Would not hesitate in recommending the firm
and Daniel to anyone who has a lease to extend.
Amazing job and fully professional treatment.
The surveyor went above and beyond to check for
everything, when he could have easily claim lack
of access. In addition he was more than happy to
answer questions over the phone and be there to
explain the steps.
Within 48 hours I received my detailed report
from Joe Arnold which enabled me to see the
property as it was and not through rose-tinted
glasses! The report highlighted areas where
money might need to be spent and provided
guidance on questions for my solicitor -
just what I needed. Overall, the survey
enabled me to re-assess my offer and in this
respect was invaluable. Thank you for a
friendly and professional service.
100% choose this company. As first time buyers
we had a mortgage valuation which said the house
was fine. The Arnold & Baldwin survey found over
£30,000 of problems. Holes in the roof with daylight
visible, damp, woodworm, broken sash windows and poor
electrics. This company helped us renegotiate and
save a fortune.
Arnold & Baldwin came recommended and I’ve got to say they were brilliant - not just in identifying issues with the property I was looking at but in the way they kept me informed and up to date (ie picking up the phone instead of just posting / emailing communications with you). After dealing with estate agents for so long, it’s nice to have someone who is genuinely on your side.
From my initial interaction with the firm I found them to be prompt, courteous and helpful. I received a detailed Homebuyers report within a week of instructing and was given the opportunity to talk it through with the attending surveyour. Overall excellent service all round, would certainly recommend this firm.
