  1. The Importance of Professional Snagging on Your New Home Building a home is a huge process, which is why many opt to buy a newly built home that someone else has completed. This often comes with less work as you are not responsible with hiring builders, contractors, painters, etc. However, this clearly comes with a lower level of personalization as you will not be present during the build. This also comes with some small risks that you may not realize if you have never purchased a home in the past. When you decide to purchase a newly built home, you often expect everything to be up to date and modern. However, this is not always the case and at times, properties may not be entirely up to date on safety codes or high standards. The process of ensuring that the home is as quality as possible is referred to as snagging. In order to have this done properly and accurately, it is often best to have the process completed by a professional team who are trained in this area. Traditionally, homes are given a property survey, but these are more in depth and used on preowned homes. When purchasing a new build, a snagging survey is usually accurate enough and can be less expensive. Ideally, this is an easy and quick way to ensure that the home you are purchasing is at the highest standards possible. It truly protects you from hardships down the line that could have been avoided with changes before the purchase. Of course, before you pay for this survey, you will want to learn more about the process and what to expect throughout. Generally, these inspections are designed to check for any problems in a newly built home. In the perfect world, problems would be identified

  2. during the build process, but many can be missed. On average, these inspections will be carried out before you move into the new home so that any problems can be addressed and repaired before the final purchase. Once you move into a home, you can still complete this inspection, but the process is much more difficult. Repairing housing problems, both minor and major, is on average easier when no one inhabits the home. This is why most homeowners complete this process at some point in between purchasing the home and the move in date. Ideally, this should be completed before the legal completion of the sale. Before scheduling your snagging survey, there are some legal aspects that you should consider. For example, some builders before that any inspections take place after the completed sale, which is something you should always consider. In general, even if this is completed after moving in, the developer will still be responsible for any repairs or problems found with the build within the first two years. However, it is still easier to have the inspection completed as soon as possible. Each snagging survey will differ slightly, depending on which company you choose to work with. There are some key things that you should expect them to inspect and look over thoroughly. When you work with someone who is professional and experienced, you should expect them to check every detail. This should range from the most minor problems to major issues. Some minor details that they should assess are things like leaky taps, door closures, kitchen fixtures, and any missing items. Major structural problems should also be addressed, this will include broken windows, cracked tiles, bad finishes, etc. Also, since these homes have never been lived in before, cosmetic damages should also be addressed. This will involve minor things, such as paint chipping, and major things such as chipped countertops. About Us: MDR Home Inspections is a leading company in the construction world today.
