FAQ - SNAGGING

The Answers You Need

WILL I HAVE TO PAY FOR A SNAGGING REPORT?

The homebuyer has employed a independent and third party for inspection on behalf of him/herself. That's why the homebuyer has to pay for a professional snagging inspection.

WON’T THE NEW BUILD PROPERTY ALREADY BE CHECKED?

You may say, it is your housebuilder’s responsibility to check and fix any cosmetic defects before you complete on the sale. However, they rarely pick up on everything.  
A snagging report is more thorough and independent. It helps to reduce your expenses due to fix those defects on your own costs later.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER ADVANTAGES TO A SNAGGING REPORT?

In addition to inspecting the property and compiling a report, we can liaise with your housebuilder on your behalf and push for the defects to be fixed, this means you don’t have to get personally involved.


On top of the first inspection and reporting services, we can re-check the corrective work to ensure it is completed to a satisfactory level and to make sure more damage hasn’t been caused.

WHAT IF MY BUILDER REFUSES TO FIX THE SNAGS?

Housebuilders are responsible for putting right any defect caused by their failure to build – as set out by their warranty and insurance provider.

If you think something is a flaw that should be fixed, and your builder does not, your warranty provider can offer a free resolution service. Our report with photos will be the suitable record for any further action.

I’VE ALREADY MOVED IN TO MY NEW BUILD HOME, DO I STILL NEED A SNAGGING REPORT?

In order to avoid your house builder to argue that you have caused the damage after you moved in, it is preferable to get a snagging report completed prior to moving into your new home.
But don't worry, a snagging report is still useful for up to 10 years after moving into a new build property, as this is how long your property’s warranty will typically last. Builders are legally obliged to fix these flaws as part of your warranty.

DO I NEED TO PAY BEFORE THE SNAGGING?

Once the order is confirmed, it is required to pay the snagging service in full.
