Why do I need a New Build Survey from Ripon Surveyors?

If you’re buying a new build home you want it to be perfect. Unfortunately that isn’t always the case. We can help, with a new build snagging survey.

Ripon Surveyors will help you to identify any ‘snags’ in the building. Snags are defects that can be either minor or major faults. If not dealt with promptly, these snags may in time lead to significant and costly issues.

House builders have been under scrutiny in the last few years, with reports of new build properties handed over with numerous minor or major imperfections or simply left unfinished. These imperfections must be drawn to the builder’s attention prior to the exchange of contracts or at least within the guarantee or warranty period.

It is because of this that Which? and other public bodies recommend a snagging survey for new build homes.

How Ripon Surveyors can help

Ripon Surveyors will provide you with a snagging survey of the highest quality. A ‘snag checklist’ will ensure that the information passed over to you is clear and concise. It is preferable for the snagging survey to take place after the building construction is finished but before legal completion takes place.

Our Chartered Surveyor will maximise the chances that the building developer will agree to rectify these snagging items prior to completion and your moving in date.

In some circumstances, the surveyor’s fees may even be covered by the developer.
