Top tips for a Mitcham Home Buyers Survey


Mitcham has a long history and is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book. Old buildings there include The Canons, a house originally built in 1680, Eagle House, which was built in 1705 and Mitcham Common Windmill, which dates from 1806.

Mitcham has a mix of properties: many Victorian and Edwardian, as well as even some Georgian. The majority of properties, however, consist of three bedroom semi-detached 1930s houses.

Various social housing schemes were built in the 1930s, including New Close. Post war, the areas of Eastfields, Phipps Bridge and Pollards Hill were rebuilt to provide cheaper more affordable housing and these were all expanded in the 1960s. The Phipps Bridge estate is the largest council housing project in the area.

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

Local Tip 1

Local Tip 3
All properties in Mitcham are built in an area where flood alerts are issued from time to time and those built in close proximity to the River Wandle, in streets such as Willow Lane and Wates Way, are in areas which are sometimes subject to flood warnings 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 in some areas of Mitcham are built in areas where there is a contamination risk from landfill and waste and other contaminants.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Lulworth Crescent, Mitcham, CR4 3RB revealed that it was built within 500m of landfill and waste sites.

Landfill and waste can have a detrimental effect on the surrounding environment, house value and health and where organic material is involved, odours and gas may be produced for many years.

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