The Snag List is produced by the purchaser prior to the final completion of a building to identify any building defects. It is advisable to engage a registered architect to compile a detailed snag list. Defects can be easily missed and architects are professionally trained to look at building details.

Typical building defects may include:

  • Poor workmanship and finishes
  • Faulty plumbing: leaking cisterns and WCs;
  • Poorly connected pipes
  • Plaster settlement cracks in walls or ceilings
  • Faulty electrics
  • Faulty heating
