House Surveys & Snag Lists

Property Surveys

Defects analysis is an investigation into a specific problem or defect with a property. This process involves the identification of the defect with recommendations for repairs. In some cases, opening up works are required to determine the exact cause and our detailed report will provide the necessary course of action required to eliminate the problem with budget estimated costs for the necessary repairs.

Our Chartered Surveyors are specifically trained in the process of diagnosing and analysing a particular problem or defect and recommending detailed specific repairs where required. We can also act as an expert witness for legal proceedings and also prepare detailed reports for management companies and building agents. The most common defects which appear to be a causing significant problems in today’s modern buildings include condensation, mould growth, damp penetration, cracking and poor workmanship.

Snag Lists

A Snag List involves a detailed inspection of new properties to identify any specific problems or defects prior to purchasing or signing of contracts for closure of sale. This will also take into consideration all aspects of the property in relation to compliance with the Building Regulations. It is an ideal opportunity by the prospective purchaser to prepare a list of items that require repairs by the contractor. At K.V.Arthur Associates Ltd, we can if required, carry out re-inspections of the property to ensure that all the necessary work has been completed to our client’s satisfaction.
