Have any questions?

When Home Snaglist Dublin is commissioned to do a snag list, it commissions a detailed report that records any defects, or snags, plus incomplete, insufficient or sub-standard work. This identifies remedial work that may need to be commissioned before the buyer completes the purchase of the property, and also provides a record of evidence for the buyer. That way, if any further issues occur post-sale the buyer has documentation to pursue recourse against the developer or builder.

If you want complete peace of mind before you buy a new build property, and before you complete your purchase, a snag list will ensure that your new build truly is fit for purpose. This is vital because some developers miss work that they originally contracted to do, or fail to deliver work to the necessary standard. Why? Because sub-contractors are usually working to speed rather than quality standards.

Research suggests that the cost of finishing a snag list for a new build averages around €3000. As a potential buyer, you want to ensure that this cost is borne by your developer or builder, rather than passed onto you once you are the property owner.

The best time is pre-purchase and certainly before you move in. However, in most instances, developers remain liable for repairs for up to one year after your moving-in date. For further information, please contact Home Snaglist who can advise.
