Newly built or converted properties are known for minor defects or ‘snags’ caused by poor workmanship or equipment. A snagging survey is also known as snagging list or inspection. This report is prepared prior to completion. The purpose is to identify defects in your home for your housebuilder to fix.
Ian Hyman & Company are a team of Chartered surveyors offering many year of combined experience in snagging surveys and have inspected many properties over the years. We ensure that your move into your new home is coupled with peace of mind that the property has been checked by a qualified surveyor.
Having a snagging survey could save you thousands of pounds. A snag could be a small defects or problem that is still outstanding after the building work has been completed; for example something not fitted properly, or more major defects like faulty sockets, cracks or possibly a structural defect.
The property is inspected both internally and externally. We can either provide a snagging survey prior to or after purchase. Once we have prepared the snagging list we will provide you with ongoing support and advice.
