Top tips for a Merton Home Buyers Survey


Merton experienced rapid population growth between 1811 and 1841, when the population doubled, and even more so between 1901 and 1911, when it trebled. It also more than doubled between 1921 and 1951.

These periods saw significant increases in housing and the architecture can be dated to these periods, so there are a fair number of Victorian properties, particularly terraced houses, and Edwardian properties. 

There were also many standard construction 3-bedroom semi-detached houses built in the interwar and immediate post-war periods.

There are Georgian properties, such as Merton Cottage and there are a significant number of Arts & Crafts-inspired properties built in the Merton Park Estate area. Many of the major housing associations have built shared ownership properties in Merton, including A2Dominion, Affinity Sutton, Amicus Horizon and Genesis. .

Modern developments include Morris Court, which has offered shared ownership.

Local Tip 1
Local Tip 2
Local Tip 3
Properties built in the vicinity of the River Wandle in Merton, such as in Morden Hall Road, are subject to flood warnings and 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 Merton.

In a recent environmental search, taken out for a property in Griffiths Road, Merton, SW19 1SS, 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."

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Merton area are highest around the main roads of Merton High Street/Abbey Parade/Kingston Road A238 and Merton Road/A219, particularly affecting nearby streets such as Hamilton Road Mews and Milner Road, where these main two roads cross.

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