Professional Snagging in Bristol

Lively Professional Services carries out professional snagging in Bristol for new build home buyers. We are an independently and privately run Bristol snagging company. This means that we are available to provide an unbiased, honest review of your Bristol home and ensure that any defects are swiftly identified.

Why Bristol?

Often regarded as the capital of the South West, Bristol is a historic harbourside city that has plenty to offer those who live there. With a lively city centre and friendly residential areas, Bristol is popular with young professionals, couples, and families alike. 

As a result, the demand for housing in the city is increasing. With more new houses and apartments being built quickly to create supply for this demand, there comes the issue of quality. Fortunately, snagging services offer the solution.


New Build Professional Snagging in Bristol

Although many buyers expect their new build home to be free of flaws, unfortunately this is usually not the case. The majority of new builds have been constructed in a range of weather conditions, using numerous different materials and subcontractors.

As a result, there may be multiple defects that haven’t been picked up on, from damaged windows to poor plastering. The good news is these can easily be identified during a professional snagging inspection.

All new homeowners deserve quality houses. At Lively Professional Services we know how much an investment like this means to you and pride ourselves on being one of the UK’s leading professional snagging companies.

Our highly qualified Bristol snagging inspectors help eliminate the stress of having a potentially faulty home by identifying all flaws and creating a detailed defects report.


What we check when we visit your home

During our visual inspection of your Bristol 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.
