New builds in London, typically, have 60 to 120 snags!


Snagging surveys are essential when investing in a new build in the greater London area because no apartment or home is snag free so having your property independently snagged will greatly improve the quality and finish of your new build.

When it comes to snagging surveys, unfortunately, there are a number of developers, in the London area, that are adverse to new home buyers engaging the services of a snagging inspector before a handover or completion. The developer will often try to persuade the client to undertake the inspection themselves during the actual handover. A typical handover slot for a two bedroom apartment is one hour, considering the client is purchasing a new build and therefore requires the handover to familiarise themselves with their new: appliances, fixture and fittings, home entry system, heating system; air-conditioning unit, underfloor heating, thermostat controls and also the property layout, we firmily believe, it is totally unreasonable to ask the client to also snag the property for defects and issues within in that timescale. 

It takes a professional snagging inspector 3-4 hours to complete a snagging survey for a two bedroom new build in  London therefore how can a developer expect a non-professional to inspect a property for defects within the hour handover slot?


When a trained snagging inspector inspects a property they will work from a template that is based on the floor plans. A professional snagging inspector will be trained to look out for common  snags and defects, bad workmanship, as well spotting major structural defects and plumbing issues. Of course the initial snagging inspection is curcial for indentifying what are genuine defects, snags and issues, however reporting and presenting the findings, in a professional annotated format, is equally important in order for the developer and their contractors to easily indentify and locate the defects, so they can then crack on and rectify the issues in a timely manner. Professional snagging surveys conducted in the greater London are an important tool for the home purchaser to help maintain and improve the standard of the new build.
