Top tips for a Sutton Home Buyers Survey


Sutton's housing mainly consists of semi-detached properties built in the 1920s and 1930s however there are Edwardian houses in the Landseer conservation area off Cheam Road and a small number of Art Deco houses and flats in Grove Avenue also off Cheam Road. There are also larger detached properties in the roads around South Sutton near Belmont Village.

Sutton also has a garden suburb in the Benhilton area north of the town centre, with houses built just before the first world war, which have red-tile roofs. It also has a former council estate – the St Helier Estate – which has well-built standard construction homes built between 1928 and 1936.

New developments include Sutton Point in Sutton Court Road, which has 1 to 3 bedroomed flats in 2 tower blocks. Sutton Court in Sutton Court Road opposite Sutton Point offers shared ownership flats as does Seventeen, an L&Q development just next to Sutton Court.

Survey Tip 1

Survey Tip 3

The whole of Sutton is in an area where the Environment Agency has issued flood alerts from time to time, however the locale around the Pyl Brook (so including for example Hamilton Avenue) and also around its tributary further to the north and west (so for example Rutland Drive) are subject to occasional flood warnings.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
Sutton has a number of purpose built flats that were built around the 1960-70s.

In a recent HomeBuyer Report in Foxley Court, Christchurch Park, Sutton, SM2 5UE, the flat was a 2 bedroom flat positioned on the ground floor of a purpose built, 1960s block comprising similar properties. The property is demised a single garage, which required maintenance.
The grounds of the property will be inspected during the survey making reference to:

  • Tarmac;
  • Pathways;
  • Communal gardens;
  • Steps; and
  • Entrance ways.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, incredibly important when you are considering buying a home in Sutton.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

Confusion can arise regarding mortgage valuations and HomeBuyers Surveys. The unfortunate result is that property buyers can sometimes find themselves having to spend a great deal of money repairing faults and defects which might well have - and ideally would have - formed part of the bargaining process with the vendor when negotiations were taking place.

Lenders appoint surveyors to carry out valuations to estimate market values of properties but the survey has no concern with investigating structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey notes and reports on defects and has a full appraisal and valuation of a property, which, most importantly, is completely independent of the mortgage lender. You can use this information to get quotes for how much it would cost to fix any defects detected in your property in Sutton. More importantly, the survey can provide evidence which you can use to bargain with the seller about sharing repair costs. Book your HomeBuyers Survey for your property in Sutton by calling 0207 112 5388 and get yourself some well-earned peace of mind.
