    Our developer is saying that the snagging is to be done after completion.

    They say this is normal.

    Is this right?

    In normal circumstances, I think it would be. Until you move in and live somewhere and start using things, you cannot detect the problems. I think it is totally unreasonable not to let the purchaser see their apartment BEFORE completion though, which I understand to be the case at Green Hills.! 😯

    Snagging is done always BEFORE completion so as to practice a retention at completion due to construction flaws until mended.

    I think it advisable to thoroughly snag the property before completion (we once found over 40 minor and major faults including missing specifications), delay completion until rectified, or, as Drakan says keep a large retention of funds back until they put right.

    Thank you very much for that, guys

    It seems the devious ways of this company at Green Hills is never-ending.

    I have now informed/warned the group of purchasers I am in touch with the content of your replies – much appreciated.
