Frequently Asked Questions
What is snagging?
At the time of or just before building work has been completed on a property, it is common for short comings and imperfections to occur. We call these a “Snag”.
An example of this could be a door incorrectly fitted, wall tiles not aligned, a scratch on a window or something more serious.
What is a snagging list?
Exactly as it sounds, a snagging list or “punch list” is compiled from all the defects found within a new build property. These “snags” could be minor or major issues.
During a house inspection, a snagger will write down anything they find not up to standards to give to the new homeowner.
What is a snagging inspection?
A snagging inspection is conducted to establish defects that need to be rectified within a house. It is the inspector’s duty to highlight anything that falls below a set benchmark of standards for workmanship, anything not completed to specification, and anything that breaches building regulations.
What is a snagging report?
Similar to a snagging list, a snagging report will show any defects present in the new build house for the construction team and the new homeowner.
The report is the last step in the process, finalising the issues found in the property and writing them up in document form.
I didn’t know what to expect we were told the inspector would be on site for a few hours; he was with us for over 4 hours and took the trouble to explain all the things that he found.
We were really concerned about antagonising our builder by asking too many questions. We used the report to give us an independent view of our property so that we did not need to fall out with the site manager. But got things done, and quickly.
