New Build Homes & Snagging Surveys
Are you looking to purchase a new build property? We can provide you with a comprehensive survey specifically designed to identify defects and unfinished items in new build homes so that when you get your keys you can move straight in with confidence there are no outstanding issues to be sorted.
New build properties often have several tradespeople working on them to tight schedules, this means that some items can be missed or damaged during the build. Our snagging survey includes a thorough inspection of your new build home so that any items requiring attention can be put right before you move into your new home.
Common defects we see during snagging surveys in new build homes include: doors not fitting frames properly, integrated fittings not being fitted, poor detailing meaning dampness may be a future problem, we have even come across toilets which have not been connected to the plumbing!
A fully qualified Chartered Surveyor will undertake your snagging survey. You can therefore be confident that any major defects will also be identified. The snagging survey service includes a telephone call with your Chartered Surveyor on the day of the survey to discuss the property in detail with you with a written report sent to you shortly after.
Snagging surveys are most useful when carried out before exchange of contracts so that problems can be rectified before the sale is completed.
As our surveyors are all RICS Registered Valuers we can also provide you with a professional, independent Market Valuation so you can be confident you are paying the appropriate price for your new build property.
If you would like to find out more about our snagging survey service for new build properties please give us a call and one of our surveyors will be happy to discuss your own individual requirements.
