Why get a snagging survey in Gateshead?
Gateshead is a popular place for developers as it is in close proximity to Newcastle, with some Gateshead new build houses even within walking distance to the neighbouring metropolitan city. The Bill Quay plots are a short walk from the quayside. What is striking about a lot of the new builds in Gateshead is their stylish, modern look at a more competitive price than those available in Newcastle.
The property prices may be more competitive than over the water, but that does not mean you should take any risks with the quality of the property you are buying. Your snagging survey will ensure you are buying a property at the high standards you would expect by identifying snags and consolidating them into a report for you to hand over to your developer.
You could check for snags yourself but like a mechanic, a professional surveyor has experience, knowledge and tools to produce the most accurate report to give to your developer.
With new build properties in Gateshead, it is unlikely there will be any major defects. However, on a typical snagging report it is not unusual for 70-100 minor defects to be identified. That is a lot of defects which could be expensive for you down the line if gone unnoticed.
Getting a new build snagging inspection from a professional like NES will not only give you peace of mind that your new home is in good standing order, but it is also presented in a clear report for your developer to action. You only have two years to report defects to your developer, or the costs fall on you, so act now.
How much does a snagging inspection cost?
