Professional Snagging in Berkshire

Lively Professional Services carries out professional snagging in Berkshire. This snagging check service provides quality assurance for new build homeowners. This is an independently owned and operated company. Our Berkshire home inspections are unbiased, honest, and we ensure that any flaws are quickly identified.

Why Berkshire?

Berkshire is located in the South of England. With great links to London from Reading, two airports, and plenty to see and visit (from Newbury and Ascot Racecourse, to the famous Windsor Castle) it is no surprise that so many people want to make the historic county their home.

Many new homes have been built in Bracknell in recent years to keep up with increasing demand. Most of these homes have been built in Wokingham that, along with Bracknell and Maidenhead, is one of the county’s larger towns. With more new homes popping up, there comes the issue of ensuring that these properties are safe and issue free.


New Build Professional Snagging in Berkshire

The majority of buyers expect their new build home to be free of flaws, but this is usually not true. Those who have constructed new homes have done so in a range of weather conditions and have used different materials and subcontractors.

This can lead to multiple defects that aren’t picked up, from broken windows to poor plastering. An inspection by a professional can easily identify these snags.

At Lively Professional Services, we believe that all new homeowners are entitled to quality places to live. We understand how important the investment of a new house is to you and are proud to be one of the UK’s top snagging companies that work to make sure your property is up to standard.

By spotting all flaws and compiling a detailed report of all issues, our Berkshire snagging inspectors eliminate the stress of having a potentially defective home.


What we check when we visit your home

During our visual inspection of your new home, it is our aim to identify and itemise any defects both internally and externally including any garden areas, drives and garage if applicable. The areas that we cannot inspect will be detailed in the report. Following our visual inspection, a detailed defects report will be produced and sent to you. Our inspector will report upon the main aspects of the property to an accepted benchmark quality standard, normally the NHBC standard both internally and externally.

This can then be handed to your builder to rectify, usually within 14 days, however this may differ depending on their defects warranty period/ procedures.

When should we be called in?

More Info
Prior to legal completion of your new home your builder will invite you for a home demonstration. At this meeting the builder will show you around your new home and demonstrate how the systems and appliances work. During the inspection the builder will give you the opportunity to identify any snags / defects within the property.

If the builder will allow access prior to you legally completing your property then this is the ideal time to call us in. However some builders will not allow this so once you have legally completed your property and received your keys is the time to call us in to inspect your property.
