    What is Property Snagging

    “Snagging” is a necessary process of identifying issues with your property. Snagging issues range from leaks, plumbing faults, un-level ceilings, floors and walls, damaged units, missing insulation, poor joinery and structural issues. For landlords, it is a notoriously stressful and time-consuming process.​ The importance of hiring a snagging company is that we are experts in identifying issues with specialist equipment, and provide one comprehensive snag list for your developer to easily follow.

    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

    FAQ

    We usually schedule it a week after confirmation. But depending on the availability and urgency, we can schedule it within the same week.

    5 working days after the inspection takes place. But for some clients like Emaar, we deliver within 3 working days.

    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.
