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.

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.

LondonGreater 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.

What happens if your surveyor is does not inspect an area of the property?

There can be a number of reasons a surveyor might not inspect an area during their survey of a property.

Most commonly it is down to access (or lack thereof) to a certain part of the property (i.e. roof/garage) where a vendor may have forgotten to leave the key used to gain entry to the area in question. Additionally if your surveyor is physically unable to gain access to an area because, for example, there are objects in the way, they will equally be unable to inspect it in the normal way and report back on it.

Your surveyor may agree to return to a property to cover the areas that were missed in the original survey, assuming that steps have been taken to enable them to access the areas in question easily and once a date/time to return has been agreed with the vendor.
