When you are purchasing a new property, obtaining a Snagging List from an Independent Surveyor may be more appropriate than a Survey Report or obtained as a supplementary report.
The purpose of a Snagging List is to itemise any outstanding matters once the construction works are complete.
Before we can prepare a Snagging List, the developer or builder must have first fully completed all building works and prepared the property for handover. For this reason, Snagging Lists are often carried out at a late stage possibly a week or two before completion of the purchase.
The report should then be shown to the builder to make sure that he puts right all those matters identified.
Remember you are buying a new house and whilst it should be covered by a new build warranty such as NHBC, this only covers the more serious issues and a lot of minor issues can add up.
We offer a variety of surveys and valuations for properties, new and old – no matter the condition. Take a moment to browse our other services, below.
