Why Somerset?

Somerset is a rural county that boasts the Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills, and Exmoor National Park. Home to numerous fantastic towns, such as Frome, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet, and Taunton, buyers are realising that the county offers the best of both rural and town houses.

With many towns in the county expanding, prospective buyers in Somerset are confronted with more new build housing options. If you are looking to buy a new build property it is important to consider your options for local snagging services.


New Build Professional Snagging in Somerset

Many buyers anticipate their newly constructed home to be defect-free, but this is rarely the case. The bulk of new homes have been built in a variety of weather conditions and with a range of materials and subcontractors.

As a result, there could be a number of flaws that have gone unnoticed, ranging from broken windows to inadequate plastering. Luckily, these can easily be discovered during a professional snagging inspection.

Every new homeowner is entitled to a decent home. We at Lively Professional Services understand the importance of such an investment, and we are proud to be one of the UK’s leading professional snagging firms.

By finding all flaws and creating a complete defects report, our highly skilled snagging inspectors help to relieve the worry of possessing a potentially problematic house.

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.
