Snagging Survey London
A snagging survey can take a look for flaws with a new-build or recently refurbished or renovated home. Developers or renovation contractors really should fix the issues identified in snagging surveys quickly.
Compared to ordinary home surveys, snagging surveys will identify everything from small issues, for instance a door that neglects to close properly or a worktop with a dodgy finish to more severe, structural problems.
What is a Snagging Survey?
A snagging survey is effectively a cosmetic survey on the all round quality of finish with the goal of checking for faults (snags). Nevertheless, more proficient snagging inspectors, like those used by us, continually unearth more severe defects in newly renovated properties.
Snagging lists are the results of a snagging survey and are used to determine any flaws or repairs that should be made to a new build property or a property following refurbishment or renovation work. Snagging surveys should be undertaken between building work being finished and your legal completion date.
What is Inspected During a Snagging Survey?
In the course of a snagging survey the building is inspected internally and externally covering particulars such as : walls, roof, gutters, downpipe, doors, windows, fixtures, fittings, showers, baths, skirting, walls, ceilings and joinery. After the survey our surveyors will be able to create a snagging list of any repairs that need to be made which will then be passed over to the company carrying out the renovation or other construction works. Right after the repairs have been undertaken a second assessment will be conducted to be sure that the fixes have been carried out to a satisfactory standard.
What Does a Snagging Survey Cost?
Snagging surveys typically cost between £300 and £600. Assuming that you’re investing thousands, or possibly thousands upon thousands, of pounds in your residential or commercial property, and the survey can find major problems which would otherwise go unseen until your renovator is long gone, this is definitely money well spent.
