This survey is perfect for newly built homes


Buying a new build is exciting, but the joy can quickly fade if you move in to find a snaggy surprise behind every corner. Don't let minor (or major!) defects steal your shine – invest in a comprehensive snagging survey from South-East Surveyors and rest assured your dream home is truly move-in ready!

What is a Snagging Survey?
Snagging generally refers to faults or defects that exist in newly built homes after they have been signed off as ‘completed’ by the developer. Unfortunately, newly built homes often have issues that would not be obvious to a typical purchaser and require appropriate inspection by a suitably qualified professional.

A snagging survey is an investment that pays off. Don't settle for anything less than perfection. Choose South East Surveyors and enjoy the peace of mind knowing your new home is truly ready for you.

If purchasers do not highlight the relevant Snagging issues to the developer within the required period, they will be responsible of carrying out the necessary repairs and improvements themselves. Our professionally qualified Surveyors are here to help with this process by impartially and expertly identifying the necessary issues for the developer to rectify.

Snagging Surveys not only help to identify issues that the average purchaser would be likely to overlook, but also helps smooth the process by impartially providing a report to developers in an approved format for them action. The impartial nature of the report can help to eliminate any potential conflicts between the purchaser and the developer when reporting Snagging defects for rectification.
