Top tips for a Cheam Home Buyers Survey


Cheam is a large suburban village in the London Borough of Sutton and consists of North Cheam and Cheam Village.

It has a number of listed buildings, including Lumley Chapel and the 16th-century Whitehall Gallery.

Cheam Village has historic buildings dating back several centuries, including Nonsuch Mansion, the gabled Whitehall and Lumley Chapel (see below) and a Georgian former Rectory.

Cheam survived as a rural village into the 20th century though by 1913 housing was advancing towards it from Sutton along the south side of Cheam Road. The First World War was a watershed and the whole character of the village changed in the 1920s. The buildings along the southern end of Malden Road were cleared, the road was widened and new — and very fine — mock Tudor shops were erected.

Only one period building survived — a small late medieval timber framed cottage which was dismantled and re-erected on a new site. The High Street and the area around the cross roads was also cleared and reconstructed along wider roads. The fields around the village changed even more dramatically as they were overrun with suburban streets and houses. By 1939 most of Cheam was built up and the place had assumed its modern form.

Building has continued in the latter part of the 20th century and new build develoipments include the detached houses in The Crescent, the flats in Upper Mulgrave Road and the flats of varying sizes in The Broadway.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Many properties in Cheam are built in an area of South London which is subject to flood alerts from time to time.

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).
Properties sometimes have issues with ground stability in certain locations in Cheam .

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Stonecot Hill, the report noted that there was a moderate potential for natural ground instability within 50m of the property.

This should not be taken to mean that the property in question actually suffered/suffers from subsidence however as "active subsidence will be dependent on local conditions, such as the proximity of trees or areas where trees have been removed, which require an inspection of the site to identify the nature of the ground on which the property is built."

Properties in some areas of Cheam may be affected by overhead power lines or mobile phone masts.

A recent environmental search carried out for a property in Stonecot Hill revealed that there were overhead power lines or mobile phone masts located within 250m of the dwelling.

Overhead power lines and phone masts can be contentious and additionally may have a visual impact on the surrounding area.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Cheam and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Level 2 HomeBuyer Report with a Valuation

A HomeBuyer Report, also known as a Home Buyers Survey, is generally suitable for:

  • Bungalows
  • Flats
  • Standard construction houses

The majority of Cheam's leasehold flats require only a RICS HomeBuyer Report but for any Victorian conversions, a Building Survey may well be required.
