Don't rely on your eye...

There is nothing more exciting that collecting the keys to your new home. However, no sooner than your first sniff of a freshly painted house (amazing), your eye will wander to all those things that aren’t quite right. On average our inspectors find 150+ so don’t be suprised.

Your developer is going to be asking you to sign to say you are happy and this is where you need our help.

Also, even if you decide to takle the job yourself, it’s what you can’t see that can be more worrying. Missing insulation behind walls or the loft or ill fitting doors and windows can make your new energy efficent home into something colder and more expensive to run that it should be.

The benefits of having a snagging report...

help to buy valuation lady

Hese are just a few of the benefits of having a snagging report.

  • We inspect the inside and outised of the property and any outbuildings.
  • We use a thermal imaging camera to deduct energy inefficency allowing you to get the developer back to seal your home to the proper standard, making your home warmer and cheaper to heat
  • The report is provided in an easy to use app that allows the developer to view the findings.
  • The developer can book dates for revisiting the property to carry out the work directly into the handy diary
  • You can make notes on the remedial work which is fed back to the developer until you are satisfied.
  • You can upload images and notes on issues that you are not happy with and add to our report
  • The report forms a property log which you can share with the next person who buys your property
  • Save £££'s in expensive lost energy.

What people ask our specialists

We love helping people and that’s why there is no question too big or too small. Of course, your mortgage provider or financial adviser will be helping you with the details surrounding remortgaging.

Whilst our main job is to identify faults, we go further than that by providing you with a report that the develper has access to which speeds up the process of repair, we can even revisit the property to make sure the work has been completed to the highest of standard.

If you have any questions, please email snagging@fpsurveying.co.uk or you can contact us at anytime for more information

It’s very similar to a mortgage valuation where come and visit your home before using our local market knowledge to put a value on your property. We will reasearch the values of similar property and take into account market conditions.

We like to visit Help to Buy valuations within 48 hours and sometimes sooner dependent on location and your availability. The report itself will take no more than 30 minutes and we send you a copy immediately.

Remember it is only valid for 3 months. After that, we will need to reconfirm the valuation and if after 6 months we may need to perform a new report. Also, the longer you leave it, your property may go up in value which will mean that your Help to Buy valuation will be higher.

Once you have successfully submitted a valid Help to Buy valuation report you will receive an estimated repayment quote. This will include details of any arrears and your daily interest payment rate to allow your solicitor to calculate an accurate final repayment sum.

Here is a handy guide from Target which explains everything.

All of our RICS Surveyors like a cup of Tea or Coffee. I’m sure they would all be very grateful to be asked that question! On a serious note, we are a friendly bunch that love helping people, we take an invitation into your home as a great honour.

A snagging survey from our perspective

When you bought your home, you had a valuation carried out by the mortgage lender to ensure that the property was worth what the developer was selling it for. The mortgage lender wanted to be 100% sure that the value was correct.

My job is to look at your new home on your behalf. From years of experience I know exactly what to look for and how to present it a factual way so that the builder knows what needs to be done in order to put problems right. It's not always what you can see either, I use thermal imaging to see where your home is leaking energy, somehting that is impossible to see with the naked eye.

What you cant see...

On first inspection of this downstairs fire alarm you can see some paint work that needs to be tidied. What is impossible to see is the lack of insulation which is higlighted in blue. The absence of this insulation will have an impact of the fuel costs of this home and the sound insulation between floors. In this case, we were able to provide the developer with evidence so that they could put this fault right.

What our inspectors find

Building a home is no easy task and from time to time little things get missed. However, these little things soon add up and before you know it you have a task ahead of you where you have to feed these faults back to your developer in order to get them fixed. This is where we step in by providing you with a comprehensive report that you can forward to the developer.

Keep organised with your property log book...

One thing you will notice is that you will be flooded with documentation which include valuable warrantys and guarantees amongst other reference items. We have designed a document store were you simply upload to your app.

When we moved in we couldn't belive the amount of documents we had to keep safe, some of which you have to give to the person who buys your home when you sell. We was able to scan and upload them where both my husband and I have access.

A new build home could save you £629 per year in heating...

According to Energy Performance Certificate data, more than 8 out of 10 new builds have the top A or B rating for energy efficiency compared to just 2.2% of existing properties. Government data shows that as a result, new homes are using on average 103kWh/m2 worth of energy compared to an average of 294kWh/M2 for existing homes.

This means that new build home owners will spend on average £443.30 a year (£276 heating / £108 hot water / £60 lighting), well under half of the £1,072 the owner of an older home can expect to spend – saving, on average, £52 a month, or £629 a year.  

Make sure your home is energy efficient or you could miss out!
