What is new build snagging?
When should snagging be done?
As a new build home owner you will have a warranty from your builder where you can report snagging items for the first 2 years. Certain developers will allow a snagging inspection before completion but failing this it is ideal to have it done as soon as possible. This way your builder will be able to rectify any defects caused or left from the build process quickly and cannot put the issues down as general wear and tear of the property.
Can I do my own snagging?
Anybody can conduct their own snagging survey. However, choosing to use a professional is always advised as they will have a wealth of knowledge from their experience knowing what to look for and specialist equipment such as thermal imaging camers, drones and borescope inspection cameras
