Top tips for a Morden Home Buyers Survey


Morden has a small number of properties which predate the 19th century, such as an ex-coaching inn built in the 17th century, but the vast majority of properties were built in the 20th century, from 1926, when Morden Underground Station was opened.

The council built the St Helier Estate in the 1930s and it still survives today: it is mainly composed of terrace blocks such as in Winchcombe Road and Hexham Road. (Green Lane has low-rise flat blocks).

There are plenty of new build developments, such as the low-rise flat blocks of Pilgrim Close and Hillcross Avenue.

Properties built in the vicinity of the River Wandle, such as in Wandle 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 in some areas of Morden are built in designated smoke control areas.

A recent local authority search done for a dwelling in Stonecot Hill, Morden, SM3 9HU noted that the property was in such a smoke control area.

Under the terms of Section 20 of the Clean Air Act 1993, smoke emissions from all buildings are prohibited unless an exemption has been made by the Secretary of State under Section 21 of the Act.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Morden area are highest around the main roads London Road/A24 and Aberconway Road, affecting nearby streets such as Abbotsbury Road and Bardney Road.

Raised levels of noise pollution from railways centre around the railway line which passes through Morden South Station and affecting nearby streets such as Hillcross Avenue and Maycross Avenue.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Morden.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller.

A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are interested in buying in Morden and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects.

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender.

You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.

Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects.

Call us on 0207 112 5388 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Morden.
