About us

New build snagging inspections (NBS inspections) was set up during the first lock-down of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

After spending 7 years as a site manager, Dean, the owner of NBS inspections decided to set up the company due to becoming increasingly frustrated with the new build industry as a whole.

Having spent the 13 years prior to becoming a site manager as a site carpenter, Dean knew he had the skills and technical knowledge to help home buyers who may not be able to recognise, or be aware of the types of problems that can be found in a new build home.

Since its inception, NBS inspections has grown to become one of the most trusted companies in the industry. Dean is no longer on his own, helped by a small, yet highly skilled and dedicated team, NBS inspections has gone from strength to strength.
