Top tips for a South West London Home Buyers Survey


Given the area which South West London covers and its sheer history, the type of housing and construction to be found there is incredibly architecturally diverse. Kensington Palace, one of many royal residences, was originally built in 1605 but has been extensively redeveloped and extended ever since, is one such excellent example as is Fulham Palace, which originally dates back as far as the 11th century.

More modern areas with standard construction 20th century properties, including council estates, include places like Feltham, whereas Wimbledon has many Victorian properties of various sizes, ranging from classic terraces to very large detached mansions.

The area in general is a relatively affluent one, however there are a fair few areas where modern apartments have been or are being built, some of which offer shared ownership or Help to Buy terms.
