Make your move into your new property a breeze with RentCityFlat.com's all-inclusive Snagging Service. We do more than just hand over the keys - we also identify any defects or imperfections, guaranteeing a stress-free experience from start to finish. Trust that your property is in capable hands. Our dedicated team will collect the keys on your behalf from either the Estate Agent or Property Developer and schedule a meticulous snagging inspection to ensure every detail meets your high standards.

  • Seamless Handover: We collect the keys to your new property on your behalf, eliminating the need for multiple appointments or rearranged plans.
  • Expert Snagging: Our meticulous snagging agents thoroughly inspect your property, identifying any defects or imperfections
  • Comprehensive Report: We provide a detailed written report of any issues, which is then shared with the developer for prompt remedial action.
  • Video Update: You'll receive a brief video update on your property's condition post-handover, keeping you informed and involved every step of the way.
Fee: The Handover & Snagging Service fee includes arranging the snagging inspection and providing access to your property. However, the cost of the Snagging Agent is excluded.
