Property Snagging

Whether you’re a home buyer or a house builder, we perform property snagging inspections that save you time, money, hassle and stress.

HouseScan is a property snagging company with extensive experience in working with house builders to ensure your property is of the quality you expect. With our survey reports, your developers will take the report seriously from identifying our reputation and organisation in this field.

What is Property Snagging?

Property snagging is the process of picking up defects (snags) within a property. This generally refers to new build homes. HouseScan is a building inspection and property snagging company, creating an easy to read, professionally made report, detailing defects and inconsistencies on every aspect of your house. We concentrate on delivering new homeowners with the product, quality and attention to detail you were both promised and expected. Whilst you may think that property developers are at fault, this process is in place to ensure standards and regulatory requirements are met in the private sector.

Demand for new homes is huge and quality can sometimes take a back seat. This can be a result of high workload, cheap materials, bad workmanship and lack of subcontractor or site management experience. Luckily, we can offer a property snagging service to give new homeowners the maximum value for their money. The developer is obliged to meet the full specification of the advertised property that you have purchased, and by using our services we can make this happen for you.

Why does your home need a Property Snagging company?

  • You can guarantee the quality of your home both now and for the future when you sell.
  • You can ensure your home is structural, technically, cosmetically and thermally to a good standard.
  • A property snagging survey could save you thousands on repair costs if defects were not picked up within the warranty period.
  • When house builders receive list after list of defects, you get put to the bottom of the priorities pile. One list means no excuses!

Specialist Property Snagging Equipment

With our high-tech equipment combining with our technical knowledge, you can be confident that if anyone can make your house a home, it’s us.

In our property snagging inspections, we use various pieces of equipment to inform our reports, including a thermal imaging camera, borescopes, EME, laser levels and much more. This means that we can identify any thermal, structural and technical faults within the property which the naked eye may overlook until it’s too late.

Our inspectors have vast amounts of hands-on experience when it comes new property developments. All of our team either has 20 years house building experience or a 1st class degree in residential construction.

Start your Property Snagging Inspection

As a property snagging company we use our knowledge, experience and equipment to ensure your home is professionally inspected, looking at all parts of the property to help ensure you are getting exactly what you paid for from your developer. Technical practices and regulatory standards can be difficult to identify to the common eye, especially if a builder has overlooked some snags or omissions.

Unlike other property snagging companies who use generic snagging software such as site audit pro, word and other basic applications we have created our very own inspection software. This is to ensure our reports are the most comprehensive and clear-cut.
