Local Snagging Services
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 at which homes are constructed today often leads to issues and defects throughout the property.
At Fixiz we offers a comprehensive range of new-build inspection services. All work is carried out following NHBC guidelines and you’ll be provided with a detailed report with accompanying photos. We have one of the most detailed and comprehensive reporting services in the business and we’ll inspect every inch of your property, both inside and out.
All work is carried out by professional snagging teams with the latest in computer software and equipment.

Frequently asked questions:
A: This is a colloquial expression used within the construction industry throughout the UK. It denotes a process of inspection necessary to compile a list of minor defects or omissions in building works for the constructor to rectify. These so called minor defects can turn out to be a major source of conflict between developers and purchasers of new homes.
A: A snagging list is too important to get wrong. Even if you have an excellent eye for detail, inspecting the property yourself won’t turn up all of the issues. There are many issues that you won’t be able to spot without the specialist equipment our team uses.
Our team has years of knowledge and experience that allows them to find issues that may not be visible to the naked eye. We use cutting edge inspection technology to ensure that nothing is missed both internally or externally.
In our experience, an inspection of a typical new-build three-bedroom property can identify between 100 – 200 individual snagging items.
A: As part of our inspection process, our team uses a specialist thermal imaging camera. This is used to detect any issues with your windows, external doors, underfloor heating and central heating system.
It can determine if there are any areas leaking heat due to gaps around windows or badly sealed glazing.
A: In an ideal scenario, the best time to book a new-build inspection is as soon as you’ve moved into the property. Even if you’ve already moved in, it’s not too late. Your developer must fix all issues, faults and snags reported within the first two years.
In some cases, we may be able to complete the survey before the completion of the sale, before you take possession of the property. If there are any major issues, you can report these to the developer immediately.
Book your inspection before the two years are up to get a comprehensive snagging list.
Once we’ve completed the Snagging inspection, we aim to have the report compiled and delivered to you the next working day.
A: Yes, as legally until you have completed the property still belongs to the developer. However, many developers will work with us and grant access to snag pre-completion, in the interests of resolving issues prior to the property legally becoming yours.
