Snagging for new build properties

If you’re a first-time buyer using the Help to Buy scheme, you may want to consider a snagging list as you will most likely be purchasing a new build property with it.

Research by The Home Builders Federation shows that up to 16,000 new homes have been bought using this scheme, 81% being first-time buyers.

Stewart Baseley, executive chairman of the Home Builders Federation stated that “new build homes are proving to be the solution for hard-pressed households with an ambition to move into home ownership. Over a quarter of a million people are now living in new build homes purchased using the Help to Buy scheme, the vast majority of whom are first time buyers.”

Many first-time buyers are looking to this government scheme to help them onto the property ladder and so if you’re also using it, make sure you use a snagging list to inspect your new build home.

You should have already queried about the property’s condition by asking questions before buying. However, getting a snagging list will only further solidify that the home is stable and liveable.
