    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is “snagging”?
    Snagging is an expression used within the building industry to describe the process of defect identification in a property
    When should the inspection be undertaken?

    Ideally prior to legal completion. That way the builder has the time and opportunity to remedy snags before you move in. If that is not possible then it should be done as soon as possible after completion

    However the snagging inspection can take place at any time during the first 2 years of occupation

    Will the house builder allow access for a snagging inspection before legal completion?

    Some house builders have a policy of not allowing snagging inspections prior to legal completion.

    In that event, the inspection can be undertaken immediately after legal completion or indeed at any time in the first 2 years and it doesn’t affect the house builders liability for snags / defects. It is just more difficult for them to repair as they then have to work around you and your furniture.

    What if new snags come to light after the initial snagging?
    The builder is liable to repair all defects identified in the first 2 years so there is no limit on the number of lists that can be submitted

    As new defects become identified the original list can simply be updated and reissued

    What is the NHBC / Premier / LABC warranty?
    A building warranty is, in effect, an insurance policy by the builder which is aimed at protecting the purchaser (and their successors in title) for a period of 10 years against latent defects to their homes

    The builder is responsible for the first 2 years and provides cover for every defect within the house during that period

    In years 3 – 10 the warranty provider covers only structural defects

    This means that purchasers have only 2 years to identify, report and have remedied any defects in their home
