Why South Herefordshire?

South Herefordshire is in the West Midlands of England. It borders the Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the east and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south. Lively Professional Services can carry out snagging inspections in the cathedral city of Hereford and towns including Ross-on-Wye and Ledbury.

Over half of the population of Herefordshire live in rural areas. In many of these rural areas, new homes are being built to keep up with increasing demand. The majority of these properties will require snagging to identify any defects.


New Build Professional Snagging in South Herefordshire

Many buyers expect their new home to be defect-free, but that’s not always the case. New houses have been built with various materials and subcontractors in a range of unpredictable weather conditions in the last few years.

Many faults, such as faulty windows and insufficient plastering, may have gone undetected or neglected because of this. The results of snagging inspections can easily uncover these faults.

At Lively Professional Services, we are dedicated to helping new homeowners move into safe, issue free homes. Our team understands the significance of such an investment, and you won’t have to worry about living in a home with defects when you hire us to snag your home.

As part of our commitment to providing a thorough inspection of your home, we will provide you with a detailed snagging report that is easy to understand


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.
