Whether you are a private individual purchasing your first new or pre-owned apartment, a successful businessman buying your dream villa, or a large investment company taking delivery of a series of tower-blocks, ensuring that you are going to get what you have paid for can be a significant challenge.
It is a sad fact of life that in today’s world the commitment to quality and the attention to detail exhibited by some construction companies leaves much to be desired. Whether its sub-standard materials, poorly trained craftsmen, a lack of pride in their workmanship, or just inexperienced management, the result is the same, the purchaser does not get what they have paid for or even worse, they get faults that may not manifest themselves for years, and like a ticking time-bomb will suddenly appear with serious consequences.
A wise purchaser therefore will seek to protect their property investment by engaging the services of an independent, professional, internationally certified Inspection Company, to provide them with an accurate assessment of the status of their purchase prior to handover. Armed with such a report, the purchaser is in a much stronger position when approaching the construction company/sub-contractor to request that all necessary remedial work be carried out. Furthermore the same inspection company can act as the purchaser’s agent to oversee that the work required is carried out to a satisfactory standard.
Snag & Inspect is such a company and is the only inspection company in the United Arab Emirates certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors – InterNACHI.
