Why Gloucestershire?

Gloucestershire is a county that combines rural beauty and historical market towns. Home to part of the Cotswold Hills, its picturesque settings bring in hundreds of prospective new homebuyers, as well as tourists, each year.

With towns such as Tetbury, Stroud, and Cheltenham, as well as the cathedral city of Gloucester, Gloucestershire offers properties that are both close to modern amenities and just a stone’s throw from the countryside. It is no surprise that the county is popular with new housing developers.


New Build Professional Snagging in Gloucestershire

Purchasing a newly constructed home does not guarantee defect-free construction, but many buyers expect it to be that way. In recent years, the majority of new houses have been constructed with various materials and subcontractors in a range of weather conditions. 

Due to this, many faults, for example, damaged windows and insufficient plastering, may have gone undiscovered or simply disregarded. The results of snagging inspections can easily reveal these faults.

At Lively Professional Services, we want new homeowners to move into a safe, functioning home. As one of the country’s leading snagging firms, our team understands the significance of such an investment. We will eliminate your worries about buying a house with defects. 

Our snagging experts are always very thorough. At the end of every job, we make sure that we deliver a well executed snagging inspection. Doing so helps our clients understand what needs to be done.


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.
