Why get a snagging survey in Sunderland?
The council have proven a keen interest to improve economic growth in the city with the recent development of The Stackas the latest addition to improve tourism in the Seaburn coastal area. This has instigated new build developments across the sea front and other parts of Sunderland too.Popular areas close to the city centre including Pennywell and more rural areas near Penshaw Monument including Houghton-Le-Spring are all seeing new build estates jump up wanting a piece of this developing city.One of the most common observations people have about new build houses is that “they go up very quickly”, and they do because time is money. It’s great to have a new build you can move into as soon as possible, but this rush almost always means there are defects within the property.Thankfully, major defects are very rare in Sunderland. Minor defects, unfortunately, are not so rare and it’s important to get your developer to action these within the two-year time limit or it can be a long term cost to you.Getting a 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 we will also find any defects and present these to your developer in a snagging report. You only have two years to report defects to your developer, so act now.
