Building Survey (BS)

A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full or Structural Survey) is the highest level of non-invasive survey that surveyors usually carry out during the home-buying process. It is suitable for all properties but is often most applicable for older or more unusual properties, or properties where problems are suspected.

In most cases the buyer will be able to re-negotiate the asking price, redeeming their (BS) costs after being made aware of the true property condition. Also being assured the property has been inspected by a professional.

Snagging Survey for New-build homes

When buying a new-build property, you’d expect to avoid all of those structural and cosmetic issues you find in older homes. Everything should be pristine. This isn’t always the case, however. The speed and large sites at which homes are constructed today often leads to issues and defects throughout the property.

A must for any newly constructed home

  • The ONLY survey of its type based on industry-compatible standards
  • Identifies “snags” in finishing quality
  • Designed to help avoid buyer/developer conflict by impartially identifying incomplete or cosmetically unacceptable works
  • Focus on the parts of the property you see, touch and use every day.

What is a snagging survey?

A snagging survey is designed to check for problems with a new-build home.

The best time to have a snagging survey done is the period between building work being finished and your legal completion date, so the developer has time to fix any snags before you move in.

However, some developers won’t allow snagging inspections to be done before completion, and may deny access. If this is the case with your purchase, your conveyancer may be able to intervene with the developer and arrange access by invoking your legal interest in the property.

If this isn’t possible, you should book the snagging survey as soon as you can after you’ve moved in. That way, the developer is still likely to be onsite, building the other houses, and you’ll generally have a bit more leverage with them at this stage than further down the line.

That said, you can technically have a snagging survey done at any time during the first two years of living in a new-build home, and the developer must repair any defects reported during this period. It might just take a bit longer to get things sorted.

The report is produced by an accredited inspector/surveyor who will provide an opinion about the condition of the property which you, as the buyer, will be able to rely on and use.

 by David Barnes on Southern Preservations

Steve surveyed a property I was buying at auction and gave a cery reasonable quote for work. It was conducted a few months later by John who contacted me to arrange and carried out the work very efficiently. Would definitely recommend again.

 by David Goodall on Southern Preservations

These guys really helped me out as i was let down by another company Steve and John very were friendly ,carried out a wall tie replacement,would totally recommend them.First Class

 by Kim B on Southern Preservations

Pleased with the work, took a lot longer than I was expecting, would have been good to have heads up of a schedule of works as week taken off work and had to cancel a short break as work overrun after a delay on first day. In Hindsight and more knowledge before the works commenced we could have worked around everything a bit better. On the whole completed work good, John was great, good personality, polite and helpful. Would definitely use Southern Preservations again.

Steven has been really helpful and clearly knows his stuff when it comes to the damp problems in my house.
