A New-build snagging survey is an independent inspection to look for any issues with the property. Developers should fix faults highlighted before you move in.
A defects list and finishing schedule, often described as a ‘Snag List’ is the inspection and investigation of the construction and services of a newly built property in sufficient detail to allow us to compile a list of shortcomings, defects and irregularities with the built property. This gives the client an opportunity to furnish the developer with a detailed list of snagging items, which should be attended to before the finalisation of Contracts.
The purpose of the Snag List is to ensure that the newly built property demonstrates compliance with all current Building Regulations and Codes of Practice and meets all Health and Safety issues.
