Professional Snagging in Oxfordshire

Lively Professional Services carries out professional snagging in Oxfordshire for new build home buyers. Due to the fact that we are a privately owned company, you can be sure you will get an unbiased, honest assessment of your Oxfordshire home and flaws will be identified quickly.

Why Oxfordshire?

Oxfordshire is full of beautiful Cotswolds villages, lively market-towns, and of course, the historic university city of Oxford. This has made the county a popular choice for those wanting to experience life in the countryside while still being close to the city.  

Located less than 60 miles from London, many are looking to relocate to Oxfordshire, and towns are becoming popular with commuters. As a result of this demand, house prices in the Cotswolds are increasing and more new builds are being built.


New Build Professional Snagging in Oxfordshire

It is rare for new construction to be defect-free, despite what many buyers think. Most new homes were built in varied weather conditions and with a range of materials and subcontractors.

As a result, numerous flaws may have gone unnoticed, from broken windows to inadequate plastering. Fortunately, snags can be found easily during a snagging inspection.

As one of the UK’s leading professional snagging firms, we at Lively Professional Services understand the importance of a decent home for every new homeowner.

Our highly skilled snagging inspectors find and report every flaw in a home, helping to alleviate the stress associated with owning a home that may have problems.


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.
