When to Inspect
The ideal time to undertake the inspection is prior to legal completion once all the work has been completed. However a number of builders will not allow this citing “Company Policy”. The snagging inspection can, of course, be carried out post completion if this is the case.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is “snagging”?
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?
As new defects become identified the original list can simply be updated and reissued
What is the NHBC / Premier / LABC warranty?
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
