bit worried about the snag in early December for some people here.
my mortgage offer expires in December, so far the EA says that will be done by then, but to see some people having their snag booked to early December let me really worried, even though the EA guarantees that I'll snag the house around November 25th, but fingers crossed, not much I can do anyway..

Hello folks, I've silently read this thread for a while but this time, I'm one of the happy future owners of a Parkside house.

My solicitor emailed me the contracts for our chosen house at Walker Close.

Although I heard from the selling agent that the house should be ready for snagging in December (no clear dates), there is a clause in the building contract that states that they can take up to 3 years to complete the works. Did you folks had similar clauses in your contracts?

I found that weird because I went to the site 3 weeks ago and took pictures of my future house, and it looks basically ready (although the surroundings are a construction site).

Any toughs?

I think mine said the same but 1 year? I can't recall.

I imagine it's a protection due to COVID lockdowns but nothing yet for me to indicate we behind on timelines.

Oh - my solicitor didn't raise the completion clause with us. Better follow it up.

Houses are fenced off and ready for snagging it seems from today. Still waiting to hear on a time or day.

Hi All,

Our solicitor raised this with us clearly highlighting that the contract says 36 months for completion of the house. She did mention that this is a standard clause in most new build contracts these days as builders are not required to put in the closing date. However, she did query with us if we were aware of the progress on the construction and we did mention to her that we can see the estate is almost ready with EA indicating Dec 2020 as snag date. She did emphasize that legally we cannot do anything if the house is not ready for the next 36 months, however, she highlighted Cairn are very good at meeting their committed dates with her previous experience. I would not be too much concerned on this as Cairn have put in money and resources including extra hours to build the estate and would make good business sense to handover these houses as soon as possible to the buyers and collect money.

Yes bbehan202 you're right! Hopefully hear next week. I was up at the site this afternoon and they were power washing down everything and all looks ready to go so hopefully that's the case. I got that email too so all going well in by Christmas.

@bengtrj I actually haven't seen anyone yet buying on Walker Close. I'm on Parkside Gardens. Nice to meet you. theres a Parkside, Balgriffin page on Facebook that some of us in the new phase have joined that might be helpful to you!

Make sure you join the neighbourhood facebook group. Lots of helpful tips from neighbours who have been through the snagging phase etc. Best of luck to you all! You won't regret moving to Parkside. It's a great area with fantastic community spirit.
