Snagging List Examples

When it comes to purchasing a new build property, ensuring that everything is up to standard is crucial. This is where a snagging inspection comes into play. A snagging list is a vital tool that highlights defects and incomplete finishes in a new build property, which need to be rectified by the builder. To help potential clients understand the depth and kind of work involved, all professional snagging inspectors should showcase examples of their snagging lists on their website or social media platforms.

Displaying example snagging lists allows prospective clients to gauge the thoroughness and detail of an inspector’s work. However, it’s essential to keep in mind that these examples often showcase the worst cases to illustrate the inspector’s capability to identify significant issues. Therefore, viewing these examples gives an insight into the most severe problems that can be found, but it also underscores the importance of a meticulous inspection for every new build, no matter how flawless it might initially appear.

While sample reports are valuable, nothing beats a direct conversation with the inspection company. At New Build Inspections, we believe in transparent and open communication. We encourage you to call us to discuss your inspection needs and ask any questions you might have. This conversation ensures you get all the necessary information and feel confident about the service you are investing in. Be wary of companies that do not allow for this preliminary discussion, as it may indicate a lack of transparency or professionalism.

At New Build Inspections, we aim to make our service as clear and accessible as possible. To this end, we provide sample reports from previous inspections. These reports exemplify the level of detail and care we put into each inspection, demonstrating that no two reports are identical as each home has its unique issues.

To cater to different client needs, New Build Inspections offers two types of snagging reports:

Photo-Based Reports

This report type utilises photographs to clearly show the location and nature of issues. It is beneficial for both the homebuyer and the builder, as visual evidence can be more effective in identifying and rectifying problems. The commentary is usually concise, focusing on the visual evidence, which allows this report to be generated on-site, providing immediate feedback.

Pre-Completion PCI Reports

Since 2022, we have offered pre-completion snagging inspections in line with the New Homes Quality Code (NHQC) from the New Homes Quality Board (NHQB). This report is comprehensive and adheres to the latest industry standards, ensuring that the property meets all required criteria before completion.
