What is Snagging?

The Post-Construction stage is sometimes referred to as snagging. This stage has two important features;


The Building Standards inspector must inspect the finished building and issue a completion certificate. If the building is not constructed according the the approved Building Warrant drawings, an amendment to warrant must be applied for.


Snagging or correcting defects must be also be carried out. If you engaged capital A to use a JCT Construction Contract, this is a formal process. Part of the construction budget is retained and only paid to the builder three months after construction is complete, provided they fix any defects that emerged since building finished. This gives you time to test out the building over a period , to ensure you are totally satisfied with the work
