Cost Savings

Our specialist surveyors are able to access hard to reach areas which typically present problems in the long run. The reason these areas lead to problems is the difficulty in accessing them, as well as the associated costs. Specialist Access Technicians employ rope access certified snagging inspectors that are able to reach these areas.

When buildings or properties are being built, there are often little bits that are either not completed, or completed inadequately or insufficiently. These defects often lead to problems down the line and should be addressed as soon as they are noticed.

New Building Inspections

Ensuring your new build is done correctly

All the inspectors at Specialist Access Technicians are passionate snagging inspectors with years of experience in identifying defects on new build properties and buildings. Many times, these defects are what would be classed as minor in nature. They are typically smaller and easily repaired. However, if they are not taken care off soon after they are identified, they can lead to larger problems later.

On high rise buildings and structures, these “minor” defects (if left unattended) can fall from significant heights. These “dropped objects” can cause severe damage or destruction to properties, the environment or people. That is why new build snagging inspections are highly recommended. Not only to prevent potential damages and financial impacts, but also for the cost of the property or building.

Legally they are entitled to as they still own the property/land. However, sometimes it is in their best interest to identify defects while they are still on site.

Pre-Purchase Snagging Inspection

Specialist Access Technicians have undertaken many pre-purchase snagging inspections on behalf of our clients. When you are ready to invest hundreds of thousands of pounds, you really want to make sure that you know what you are paying for.

For this reason, having pre-purchase snagging inspections conducted will allow you to fully understand the external condition of the building, roof and surrounding areas.

New Builds

Guidelines for determining what constitutes a defect can be a minefield. A defect identified by an inspector can be argued by the building contractor as to its validity. Sometimes it just means having to negotiate with the contractor and coming to an agreement.

However, building contractors are required to undertake all building work in accordance with relevant building codes and standards. It is in their best interest to put right defects that are in violation of these standards and codes.

Pre-Purchase Defects

These type of snagging inspections differ somewhat to new build inspections as they are existing properties or structured. There are times that defects are identified that are in violation of governing standards and codes. But most of the time, a snagging checklist from pre-purchase snagging inspections are typically due to age, wear and tear and poor maintenance.

These will impact the sale price of the seller as you the purchaser have a right to reject the price on the basis of its current condition. Unless these defects are rectified by the owner. Normally the purchaser will get their own quote and have that deducted from the sale price. This not always in the best interest of the seller.
