We recommend that, as soon as possible after you move in (or before if your builder will allow a pre-completion inspection), you instruct a reputable snagging surveyor to inspect your home and prepare a report identifying all snags and defects.
There will be a cost associated with obtaining a professional survey report but we consider it likely there will be real value in doing so:
Expertise in snagging new build homes and a robust and professional attitude are important factors when choosing a snagging surveyor. So too is the surveyor's credibility to act as an expert witness should a dispute arise with your builder or warranty provider over defects identified in thier report: you need to be sure you can rely on your surveyor and the contents of their report.
The snagging surveyors listed below are ones whose report formats we are familiar with, and whom we consider to have the necessary expertise that you can rely on when seeking to agree remedial works with your builder. We do not receive payment from these surveyors for referrals. Our recommendations are based on our vetting of individual surveyors or our own clients having successfully relyied on their services in the context of disputes against builders and/or warranty providers.
