Why do I need a New Build or Snagging Survey from Lancaster Surveyors?

Buying a new home and wanting it to be perfect? Well unfortunately that isn’t always the case. Lancaster Surveyors will help find ‘snags’ which are defects that can be either minor or major faults. If not dealt with promptly they may lead to significant and costly issues.

Recently in the last few years house building companies have been under scrutiny for leaving new homes unfinished with several minor or major imperfections. These imperfections need to be drawn to the builders attention, by presenting them with a Snagging Survey, prior to a contract being completed or within the guarantee or warranty period.

It is because of this that Which? and all other public bodies are recommending snagging surveys for new build homes.

How can we help?

Here at Lancaster Surveyors, we will provide you with a snagging survey of the highest quality. Drawing out a ‘snag checklist’ and ensuring that the information passed over to you is clear and concise. The best time to have this survey is between the building construction being finished and before legal completion, so please bear this in mind.

The precise details vary from case to case, but our surveyor will maximise the chances that the developer will agree and get all or most of these snagging items completed prior to your moving in date. In some circumstances, the Surveyor’s Snagging Survey fees may even be covered by the developer.
