What is a snagging survey, and why do I need one?

A snagging survey is a thorough inspection carried out on newly constructed or renovated properties. It's designed to identify and list defects or issues, both major and minor, that the builder should rectify before you move in.

Buying a new build home is a major financial commitment, and it's crucial to have as much information as possible about the property you're interested in. The survey can act as a investment with a very real return during negotiations if significant defects are found.
