Even The Best Home Developers Can Sometimes Make Mistakes

If you have put down a deposit on a brand-new home that hasn’t yet been completed, there are many things that you need to do. Moving home is known to be one of the most stressful things that we ever do, and yet the average person in the UK moves every seven years. The list of people that you have to inform of your new address is almost endless, and then there is packing and moving to take into consideration, and a whole host of other things too.

However, looking forward to a brand-new home is also a pleasure, because once you have settled in. there is nothing else to do. But before you do actually move in, there is one thing that you really must do, and that is have the property checked over by a specialist. There is no legal requirement to do this, of course, but it is actually commonsense.

You may be asking yourself why this is, and the answer is that developers can make mistakes. They may even be one of the “big boys” – one of the ten well-known names rated as highest for build quality – but they can still make mistakes. Some of those mistakes can be shocking. From time to time, we see news in the papers about serious faults on a new housing estate that the builders say that they are working to correct.

Nobody Is Perfect

While it is technically the developer’s fault when mistakes are made, nobody is perfect in this world, and so a new build home can very often have problems. The point is that, if you are a buyer, you need to know what problems there are before you move in, so that the developer can deal with them. This is why you need a new build snagging survey to find any and all faults before you take over the keys.

Our skilled team of professionals at New Build Snagging Specialists can inspect your new home when it is completed, crucially, before you move in, so that any faults can be detected. We then provide you with a written report, including photos where necessary so that you can in turn advise the developers in order that they can carry out any necessary alterations.

By carrying out a new build snagging survey before you move in, it will mean that there are no issues that will come up in the future. Some faults develop slowly over the years, even though the original cause may be the developer’s fault, so it is better to be safe than sorry.
