Choosing between snagging companies
Making the decision to choose between snagging companies is difficult at first glance as some companies replicate what we have achieved over the past 5 years developing our snagging survey process. The most important questions to ask yourself before booking a snagging company are the following:
The most common misconception when booking a snagging survey is that we all do the same thing and are all qualified surveyors. This is far from the truth. Even a RICS chartered surveyor cannot offer you the level of service that we provide. But the problem occurs when customers choose to employ certain snagging companies that are cheaper. At face value it seems that we are earning more money from the snagging survey than our cheaper counterparts but as a nationwide company we actually will earn less, in part because of VAT and insurance etc.
We want to ensure that you choose the best snagging company for your new build property so it is important that you choose the best service and not the best price. An un-qualified snagging inspector is quite frankly more likely to miss important issues. For more information about the service we provide, see our webpage why choose us.
