What is Property Snagging

Snags in residential or commercial real estate create a bad impression during a property transaction. If a property has major defects, its value is going to be way less than the well-maintained one.

This is where our property snagging, and inspections come into play! We do a complete property audit for finding snags or defects that you should know about before selling or buying real estate. 

Detailed Snagging Report

Our snagging team is equipped with state-of-the-art tools to ensure that all defects are identified and the owner will receive a detailed report on the full technical condition of the property.

RICS Certified Experts

With our RICS accreditation, we are uniquely placed to offer professional snagging services at a reasonable price.

Land Sterling is a trusted brand by the biggest developers in the region such as Emaar, DAMAC, Aldar, and other prominent local and international faculties.

Who Needs Snagging

Anyone buying a new build home or a home in the secondary market should consider a snagging inspection. You could argue that if you’re spending anything over AED 500,000 it’s crazy not to! A snagging inspection can also be useful for buying ready built homes or at the 11 month warranty period. Also, if you’ve already moved in and are having snagging issues with your developer then a professional snagging report can help give weight to your case.

Our snagging inspection consists of carrying out a thorough visual, non-disruptive inspection of your property. Our inspection includes taking photographs throughout the property and inspecting every aspect of both the structural and MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) components of the property as well as recommendations to rectify any flaws or defects that we find.

Our fee for a snagging inspection covers our first inspection of the property along with a detailed report of all issues found as well as recommended steps to be taken. This includes full civil and MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) checks. We also conduct a follow up ‘de-snagging’ inspection after the developer/contractor has rectified all highlighted defects to verify that the property is in good condition.

Hiring an inspection services company in uae ensures compliance with local regulations, quality assurance, and adherence to safety standards. It helps identify potential issues early, preventing costly delays and ensuring the overall integrity of projects or products.
