Our mission is to ensure my customers receive the best possible service that we can provide. Listening and working with you every step of the way before and after your inspection – we are here for you.

What is Snagging and How Does it Work?
Snagging is the process of checking new builds for minor faults and sometimes major defects that need to be rectified. Our snagging services in Cheshire ensure that all snags are found and accounted for.
A professional snagger will come to your home with a checklist and ensure that everything is up to standard. In the end, you will be given a full report which you can then hand to your builder.

Ian was phenomenal in providing us with snagging services. He was very accommodating with our schedule and circumstances and did a fabulous job. His report was clear and detailed and his decades of experience in the industry shone through in his findings. He spent time describing all findings and classifying issues in complexity and effort. He answered additional questions and continues to do so even though the job is done. I highly recommend Ian’s services.

Why Choose Lively Professional Services for Your Snagging Survey
Most new home buyers will question whether they need to use a professional snagger. After all, if you are buying a brand new house it should be snag-free and perfect.
We have yet to see a newly built house without any defects. We appreciate most new homeowners feel they can spot defects, and this is true. However, you are more likely to spot some superficial defects, missing the more serious ones that could cost you dearly if they are not reported to your builder and rectified.
Using a professional snagging company has a cost, but buying a newly built house is the most expensive purchase you are ever likely to make. Therefore, we advise investing in having a professional snagging survey carried out. As independent new build experts, our customers expect the best and that is why they hire us.
We are here to make sure this is exactly what you get. We have helped hundreds of my customers get the quality of new home they deserve. During our inspections, we thoroughly inspect all external and internal areas, using specialist equipment to aid in identifying defects.
Unlike some snagging companies, we guarantee our in-house reports are amongst the most comprehensive, using photos to clearly identify any defects, along with a clear description, and a trade assigned to rectify it. You will receive your report electronically the same day followed by hard copies in the first available post. This allows your builder to rectify the defects we have identified quickly, saving you time, money and minimise stress.
Professional Service all round.
Prompt, knowledgeable, and all-around professional service. We used LPS to snag our large new build home and we were very happy with the results. Would thoroughly recommend it for a quick, efficient, and value-for-money service.

Throughout the whole process Ian has been great. Keeping in contact at every stage, we have been aware of everything that has been going on. With the amount of attention to detail in the snagging report that we received that was also sent the same day. It was easy to understand and work from. Well worth his fee, could not recommend more on a new build home!
Ian is highly professional and knowledgeable in his field, this is evident in how he carries out the inspection and points out to you details that you would not have thought about or even noticed. The report is highly detailed with photographs and enabled us to provide our house builder with the list of snags at the earliest stage so that we can engage with them while trades are onsite. I would recommend Ian to provide a snagging report as my first choice.
Extremely professional, efficient and reassuring service: was nervous about buying a new-build, but Ian's expertise has made a huge difference. Also faultlessly helpful and polite and answered all my (possibly stupid) questions! Can't recommend him enough and the service is worth every penny.
Cannot recommended Ian enough.
Ian was amazing so helpful with great information and hints and tips!
Ian has amazing attention to detail, Ian sat with us after and explained everything, Within 2 hours of Ian leaving we had a full in-depth report.
Thank you so much Ian you was amazing and I will fully recommend you to friends & family.
