Snag List Inspections
Our Snagging Service
We provide professional new home snagging inspections throughout the Southern Cape. Our inspectors will produce a professional snagging list for your new home.
Our inspectors are accredited by an international home inspection company INTERNACHI. We have combined their professional knowledge to produce an effective snagging methodology which is under constant development. This is the first time that the knowledge of chartered surveyors, senior site managers, building surveyors, architects and developers has been combined to produce a ‘new home’ snagging methodology and we are extremely pleased with the results.
What is snagging
Snagging is an informal expression used within the construction industry. It is used to describe the process of defect identification and resolution.
Most newly built properties are now purchased off-plan exposing the buyers to the snagging process. Additionally, snagging is also a major source of conflict between the buyers of brand new homes and the house builders.
A snag list is the result of a visual inspection of a newly built home carried out by a qualified accredited professional.
It is advisable to get an independent, third party, professionally certified inspector, like the ipi inspectors, to create your snag list as they are qualified to find defects.
