Snag Lists

Residential Services - Snag Lists

Snag lists are carried out on newly built residential dwellings and should not be confused with a Pre-Purchase Survey. A snag list is a detailed report, itemising incomplete or poorly constructed work and any visible breaches in the Building Regulations.

Snag lists are normally undertaken when the purchaser has been notified by the builder/developer that their property is fully complete. It is our experience that the vast majority of newly built residential properties presented by builders/developers as complete, have numerous areas of incomplete or poorly finished work which, if left unnoticed prior to signing of final contracts, can cost the purchaser a substantial amount to remedy.

Following completion of our snag list on site, a report will be forwarded to the client and builder. A follow up inspection will be carried out when we have been notified that the findings in the initial list have been completed.

There are many individuals providing snagging services, often at very low prices. We have viewed a number of these snag lists and they fall well short of what we would consider an acceptable standard. Such snag lists often contain a dozen items or less whereas Kelleher & Associates lists often number one hundred or more items. Additionally, most snaggers are unqualified, uninsured and are frequently working informally.

If you want a snag list that will stand up to scrutiny with a firm of independent surveyors who will represent your interests, then contact Kelleher & Associates.
