A snag list on a new house or property will provide the home owner with a extensive report for presentation to the builder to correct the defects and snag issues.
Snag lists for a house has all the internal fixtures, fittings, heating, electrical & plumbing checks that are carried out during an apartment snag list. House snag lists also include external items such as the envelope of the building, roof, boundary walls, driveways and landscaping etc. This is not a ‘structural snag list’ as no such reporting exists, however if during the course of the snagging inspection a visual structural defect is found it is listed on our Snag list report.
Our top tips for snag list inspections:
Never accept pressure from the builder to snag the house prior to his actual completion of all works
Shortly before the completion date and snag list inspection call the builder to check if services such as gas and electricity are connected. In some instances the new homeowner has to contact there chosen service provider to request connection & fitting of the meter. A more thorough snag list inspection can be carried out if heating and electrical fittings can be tested during the snag list inspection.
If alterations from the standard home fit have been requested of the builder, make sure to advise our snag list inspector prior to the snag list inspection to ensure the report will take account of any extras or alterations.
