The importance of home inspections
Each new home / house or apartment has a myriad of trades involved in the the construction, a wide array of materials & oversight of he project by engineers & project managers – all in the employ of the builder of developer.
In 95% of builds all checks and balances are adhered to, however when either the market takes a down turn, or a dodgy builder is involved, lazy tradesmen, or over worked engineers ……… The Ball can be dropped quite easily.
Conspect engineering snag lists are your independent surveyor / snag list inspectors, and not to put to blunt a point on it………. our responsibility isn’t whether you buy the home or not, our job is to make sure it is 100 % ready for occupancy, fit for purpose & in a quality state.
No matter how hard a snag list item is to fix, that’s the builders issue, either do it right first time or find a qualified trade to carry out the work.
The old adage – measure twice and cut once has meaning in home building, So consider our surveyors the measuring tape!Mike Fleming
Record of snag list issues
When a snag list report is published it should be kept on file, as any hidden issues within walls / floors or issues we have highlighted and the builder has carried out a poor fix, the report serves as a reference point to approach the builder for correct rectification of the snag issue. If not, the report will serve in a legal proceeding. So keep a copy on file or in your email! Note a builders snag list isn’t the same as an independent professional snag list – the builder in most cases will cut corners.
