Professional Snagging Manchester

Lively Professional services are an independent and privately run company specialising in providing a professional snagging service to new build home buyers in Manchester.  We ensure that any defects within your newly built home are discovered and handed over to the appropriate parties to fix.

New Build Snagging Services

We understand that your new home is your biggest investment to date. That is why we pride ourselves on being one of the leading professional snagging companies in the UK, helping new homeowners achieve the quality they deserve. 

You may be asking yourself; why do new builds need snagging? Well, the answer is simple. Your new home would have been constructed by many different people in all weathers and conditions. Because of this combination, all new builds must have a snagging inspection performed. 

What is Snagging and How Does it Work? 

Snagging is the process of checking new builds for minor faults that need to be rectified. Our snagging services in Lancashire ensure that all defaults are found and accounted for. 

A professional snagger will come to your home with a checklist and ensure that everything is up to standard. At 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.

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!

Alex Clegg

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.

Ivan Buckle

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.

Rebecca Hornby
