Do you own a new build property? If so, it is vital that you assess the condition of the property with a critical eye. Even minor faults can lead to more serious issues in the future. The process of fixing such issues can be both expensive and time-consuming.
Developers will request a report to assess the condition of your property before they commence remedial work.
Ernest-Brooks International offer specialist snagging inspections. With expert knowledge and inspectors who hold NAEA and NFOPP qualifications, we leave no stone unturned. So if there any issues with your property, you can be sure we will find them and ensure defects are corrected.
We recommend that you arrange the snagging inspection as close to completion as possible if the developer allows for this.
During the snagging inspection, we will inspect as much of your property as safety will allow. This will include all accessible surface areas and floors. We will not assess areas which are unreachable or undercover.
As a result, we will not attempt to raise carpets, floorboards or move any furniture. However, we will lift loose coverings as long as we are sure that doing so will not cause any damage.
- The inspectors main objective is to give the Client professional advice which will enable the Client to agree with the Developer / Builders those works which are to be rectified as a condition of purchase.
- In the event of a post-purchase Snagging Inspection being carried out to provide the Client with a list of works that require remediation.
The services will be inspected visually and manually where possible, the inspector will not carry out further testing. Nor will he or she assess the efficiency of the gas, plumbing, heating, electric or drainage systems.
The developer should be able to provide a relevant Building Regulation and Compliance Certification in respect of these services.
We will provide you with a detailed report on our findings within 48 hours of the inspection. This will recommend the best course of action to fix any issues before you sell, let, or move into the property.
We will send you one copy of the report, and one to the developer where possible to do so. When the process of fixing any issues begins, we will be on hand to provide any support and advice that you need.
The fee you pay will depend on the size of the property.

Should you choose to make use of our agency services in order to sell or rent your property the inspection fee will be refunded on the successful completion of a sale of on the day that your tenant moves into the property.
