We are a privately owned and operated, therefore, we can provide you with an accurate, impartial assessment of your property and let you know right away if there are any flaws.

Why Wiltshire?

Wiltshire is a county with a rich history. Stonehenge can be found to the far south of the county, a landmark that attracts many visitors throughout the year. Wiltshire’s most populous towns, Salisbury and Swindon, are popular with those moving to the area in the search of new job opportunities. Salisbury has strong military connections and Swindon is a fast growing business district.  

Located just 90 miles from London, Wiltshire is also becoming increasingly sought-after by homeowners who want to live in a relatively rural area with easy access to the capital or some of south England’s airports.


New Build Professional Snagging in Wiltshire

A newly constructed home rarely is defect-free, but many buyers expect it to be. The majority of new houses have been built in different weather conditions using various materials and subcontractors.

This could have led to a number of overlooked faults, such as damaged windows and inadequate plastering. Snagging inspections can easily identify these problems.

New homeowners deserve a safe, working home. As one of the UK’s leading snagging firms, Lively Professional Services understands the significance of such an investment.

With our highly skilled snagging inspectors, you will not have to worry about owning a house that might have problems, as they’ll find all flaws and create a comprehensive defects report.


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.
