For New Build Properties
When buying a brand new property that's just been built new homeowners wonder "Can anything go wrong?" but the answer is unfortunately, yes it can!
The average newly built property will typically have between 50 and 150 defects which can result in £1,000's of work. One in every 12 newly built properties have in excess of 200 defects which range from simple matters such as shoddy paint finishes to more serious issues such as faulty wiring and floors not being level.
With over 37 years experience in the Construction Industry we at Berry Party Wall Surveyors are in an extremely strong position to assist new-build homeowners and are determined to push for higher standards of new-build property handovers. Our aim is to supply buyers of new-build properties with a highly professional and extremely comprehensive snagging service.
We also offer a re-inspection service to check all the jobs on the Snagging Survey have been done after two months or, alternatively, why not take advantage of our Full Package which includes a follow up visit after 18 months ensuring that the works are completed before the National House Building Council warranty expires.
We supply a full written report with corresponding photographic evidence identifying all the faults found so that it is easy for a new-build property buyer to see exactly what snagging works need to be done to complete their new home to the high standard they deserve!
