There are four types of surveys you will choose from, they are listed below with some more information about each one:
This is a very standard and basic report which allows you to know the overall condition of the property, the report will also highlight any top-level issues without going into great detail.
This is one of the more popular options available, a homebuyer report offers you a detailed analysis of the condition of their property. It will usually include the value and areas of the property that doesn’t meet building regulations and may need repairing.
A building surveyor’s job is to give you a detailed structural report on any of the structural problems the property may have. We would suggest this even more if you are buying an old or run-down property, especially when you are looking to do a large amount of restoration work.
A Professional snagging inspector will help you identify smaller issues like cosmetic defects and can also identify bigger issues such as structural defects.
Who Needs a Snagging Report?
We would always suggest that anyone buying a brand new property whether that be a house or flat should consider a snagging inspection.
Snagging reports are also super beneficial for property investors too, it is much better for a snagging report to find out that your new buy-to-let property has significant faults than it is for your new tenant to find them out for themselves.
