Our Snag Lists comprise of a fully comprehensive list of items that the developer/builder has not carried out, works which have not been completed correctly or works that have not been carried out to a satisfactory standard. The Snag List Report will include items of defective work and works required to ensure that a property is completed to Building Regulation Standard and to a standard and condition which a purchaser should expect, prior to moving in to their new property.
While pre-purchase surveys are carried out on second hand properties, a Snag List Inspection is carried out on newly built residential dwellings, in order to produce a Snag List Report.
Following receipt of the initial instruction we will contact the developer, builder or agent within 24hours, to arrange access and to check that the property is ready for snagging. A typical property will take 1.5 – 2hours of site survey to snag completely, with a detailed report of snags, often running in to hundreds of snagging items, recorded and produced in a simple and comprehensive, easy to follow format, outlining each remedial work required in an area by area and room by room layout.
On completion of the onsite inspection, the snag list is formatted in to a comprehensive Snag List Report and forwarded as a PDF document by email to you the purchaser. A copy of the Snag List Report can also be sent to the developers/builder’s office so that they can commence the undertaking of the remedial snagging work without delay.
A follow up inspection can be carried out if required, although our easy to follow Snag list report format will allow most purchasers to check that the snag items have been attended to. However our building surveyors and technical team are always on hand to answer any of your queries and to provide any relevant technical advise, as well as a follow-up snag service.
When you want a comprehensive Snag List Report on your new property, one which will ensure that all deficiencies, incomplete works and snags are recorded and brought to the developers/builders attention and a snag list prepared by a professional firm of independent surveyors, who will represent your interests, then contact Thornton Chartered Surveyors.
