PRE-OCCUPATION SURVEY

Experience shows that, if a property is snag-free at the point of occupation, the homeowner will be happy and, easier to manage. This is why After Build has developed the Pre-Occupation Survey. This service enables the developer to identify and resolve snags overlooked by the site team prior to handover.

After Build’s survey team quality-check each plot and ensure no snag has been overlooked. All snags are detailed in a photographic report which outlines everything. To arrange an appointment with a member of our team Email: enquiries@afterbuild.com

Each survey typically looks at:

  • Decoration checked for incomplete/imperfect finish
  • Glazing scrutinised for scratches
  • All electrical sockets and switch plates tested
  • Heating and hot water systems run
  • Fitted appliances run (washers, dyers etc)
  • TV aerial/dish signal strength measured
  • Windows and doors checked for actions and hardware for damage
  • Flooring condition checked
  • Sanitary ware checked for chips, stains and cracks
  • Tiles, grout and silicone checked (floors and walls)
  • Externals (checked if required)

PURCHASER DEMONSTRATION

Between exchange and legal completion, we meet your purchaser at their plot and carry out a full demonstration. We explain layout and design, appliances, heating and hot water and defect reporting procedure. Again a last opportunity to identify outstanding snags.

At this point we provide each purchaser with a copy of our booklet ‘Managing Your New Home’, which explains how our service works and helps set realistic expectations at an early stage in terms of ‘who is responsible for what’ in a new build.
