Snagging List Reporting by Woodward Chartered Surveyors
A Snagging List is a detailed report of items not finished to an acceptable standard in a total or partial new build.
We would all like to believe that a new build is perfect, or that a builder will be attentive to problems you find after you have moved in, but the best way of being sure is raising the points requiring attention BEFORE you complete and hand over all your money.
That is the job of a Snagging List. To give you the authority to require the proper finish whilst you still have leverage over the builder and before you are living in the property, so any damage can not be blamed on you.
Snagging lists are inexpensive and provide a professional's visual opinion on what is correct, or unacceptable practice.
If you are buying a new home, it is a good idea to arrange a Snagging List with us at least a week before completion.
