FAQs on Snagging

1. What should I do if I find a major defect?

Document the defect with photos and detailed notes, then contact your builder immediately to arrange for repairs.

2. How long does a snagging inspection typically take?

A thorough inspection can take several hours, depending on the size and complexity of the property.

3. Can I conduct a snagging inspection myself?

Yes, but it requires attention to detail and patience. A professional inspection may catch issues you might miss.

4. When is the best time to conduct a snagging inspection?

Ideally, conduct the inspection before finalizing the purchase and again after any major repairs or renovations.

5. What if my builder refuses to fix the snags?

Refer to your contract and any warranties. You may need to seek legal advice if issues remain unresolved.

6. Is it necessary to hire a professional for snagging?

While DIY snagging can be effective, a professional inspection ensures all issues, especially hidden ones, are identified and addressed.

7. How often should I conduct a snagging inspection?

Conduct an initial inspection before moving in and follow-up inspections after any significant repairs or changes to the property.

8. What tools do I need for a DIY snagging inspection?

A notebook, pen, camera, flashlight, spirit level, tape measure, electrical socket tester, and ladder are essential tools.
