So this is the situation at the moment, We received an email from the estate agent that the water supply will be connected this Wednesday, tomorrow, and we can do the snagging thursday 16th January.
I informed our solicitor about the email, he advised us to wait for the builder's solicitor to confirm the snagging date, because they cancelled it 4 times already.
However, I spoke with the engineer that will do the snagging for us, she stated that we don't have to confirm the snagging through the builder's solicitor - i know she want to get paid as well.
She spoke with the foreman to find out what was the delay about and she explained to me that before the Christmas holidays the water board have detected a contamination with the water supply coming through the pipes that is why they had to close the connection, the water board said the pipes were old but the foreman argued that the pipes were newly installed.
Now the water board is going to open the connection this Wednesday and test the water. The engineer want us to do the snagging because she believes that the house is already complete and there will be no trouble to do the snagging.
Part of me want to do the snagging just to get started and find what faults there are and rectify it immediately. However, another part of me is saying to wait until we get a reply from our solicitor.
What you guys think? Should we go ahead and do the snag anyway I want to see the house and find faults as soon as possible this is dragging long enough.
