When it comes to ensuring the quality and safety of new build properties, snagging inspections are an essential step. These detailed checks are designed to identify any issues or defects that need to be addressed by the developer before you move in. To guarantee the highest standards of inspection, it’s crucial that snagging inspectors are accredited by reputable bodies.
All of our snagging inspectors undertaking the New Homes Quality Board (NHQB) Pre-Completion Inspections are accredited by one of more of the following organisations: the Residential Property Surveyors Association (RPSA), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE).
Each of these accreditations signifies a commitment to excellence, professionalism, and ongoing learning in the field of building inspection and surveying.

This accreditation ensures that our inspectors are up to date with the latest industry standards and practices, offering peace of mind to both developers and homeowners.
