What can be wrong with my New Home?
When buying a new property, it is advisable to arrange for a snag list to be produced. This should be carried out just prior to the completion by the builder and is the one opportunity for the purchaser to get any remaining or sub-standard work completed to the required level of finish. If this inspection is not carried out it makes any subsequent claim more difficult, once the house is occupied and become your new home.
