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.

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 RICS Home Buyers Survey identifies many different defects or potential risks that can be found within a property and is an essential part of any home buying process.

The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is completed by a Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) registered surveyor so they are fully trained to provide you with the detail you need to buy your home.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Mitcham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Can I be present during my Building Survey?

As standard, surveyors do not allow clients on site with them for several reasons.

Most importantly, surveyors have a third party liability insurance that covers them whilst they are on the property in the unlikely event of any damages, this does not extend to the client and as such the surveyor would be liable in the event of any damages to the property.

The other reason is that the surveyor is there to do a job and has a long list of defects to look out for which requires their full attention.

The presence of the client will understandably cause distractions and may cause the surveyor to miss something, not only could this lead the client to seeking restitution, it would ultimately affect the quality of the survey the client had paid for.
