A professional snagging survey can save your dream home from becoming a nightmare. When Jaggard Macland undertook a Snagging Survey of this fantastic new build property - a seven bedroom, 10,000 sq/ft Arts and Crafts style property - on one of Gerrards Cross's premier roads, it proved extremely useful. The homeowner commented, "The snagging survey helped us to appreciate the property's overall standard of finish whilst also allowing the minor faults found to be rectified prior to us moving in. It gave us great confidence that the house was perfectly ready when we moved in."

Despite the best efforts of your builder every property has minor or major issues, this is why we recommend a Snagging Survey is undertaken prior to the purchase of every new home. A professional snagging survey is designed to check for problems with a new-build home from minor issues, such as a door that doesn't close properly or a worktop with a bad finish, to more serious structural problems.

For this homeowner the Snagging Survey was extremely useful and enabled the client to fully understand the faults and defects of their home. These were reported to the property developer who returned to the site to complete the works prior to occupation.
