In Sutton, the RICS Level 2 Survey was the most arranged survey among our users. We found that over 26% opted for this type of survey for a semi-detached property. Our research found that there was a number of cases of Japanese Knotweed and that subsidence was also a concern for the area.
Enlisting the services of a professional surveyor for the property you wish to purchase is an essential step when buying a home, giving you an understanding of the condition of the home prior to completion.
According to Compare My Move data, our users opted for a RICS Level 2 Survey far more often than a RICS Level 3 Survey. Over 26% of our users arranged a RICS Level 2 Survey for a semi-detached property, compared with just 15.36% of users opting for a RICS Level 3 Survey for the same type of home.
This was the case for terraced homes and flats, with 20.36% of users arranging a RICS Level 2 Survey for a terraced property compared to 8.93% who went with a RICS Level 3 Survey. Flats saw 15.71% of our users arranging a RICS Level 2 Survey, with just 2.50% opting for a RICS Level 3 Survey. The only exception was detached homes, with 5.36% of users opting for a RICS Level 2 Surveyand the same percentage choosing a RICS Level 3 Survey.
Although for the most part, the RICS Level 2 Survey proved to be the more popular choice among homebuyers in Sutton, perhaps in part due to the fact that it is also the cheaper option, it may not be the most suitable option for you and your property purchase.
Terraced homes which were built during the Victorian and Edwardian era, in addition to other period homes available in the area, would be better suited to a RICS Level 3 Survey. The RICS Level 3 Survey gives a far more detailed overview of a property and highlights any concerns or work which may be required.
Initially a village, Sutton was connecting to central London by rail in 1847 and grew and expanding into a town, with further growth throughout the 20th century. Today the town of Sutton has one Grade I listed building, Beddington Place, and 14 Grade II* listed buildings, according to British Listed Buildings.
The town also has four conservation areas, three of which are residential areas (Grove Avenue, Landseer Road and the Sutton Garden Suburb) and the fourth being Sutton town centre.

Subsidence is dreaded by any homeowner as the results of it can spell disaster for a home. Subsidence occurs when the ground beneath a property compresses or “sinks”, leading to an unbalanced foundation for the home. This can cause a whole host of problems and in some cases, causing a home to be deemed uninhabitable and condemned.
Clay soil, which is found throughout the country, is one of the main causes of subsidence as this type of soil shrinks, cracks and even shifts during changes in the weather. Subsidence is especially prevalent in large cities, and London is certainly no exception. With Sutton located in South London, the risk of subsidence will be higher than in other parts of the country.
Geobear’s UK Subsidence Map shows where the risks in the area are, with the instances of subsidence increasing the closer to central London you go. It is certainly a consideration when purchasing a home in Sutton, which is why arranging a property survey is so vital. Your survey results can provide you with peace of mind and allow you to make an educated decision on the property purchase prior to completion.
Japanese Knotweed is a destructive plant and ensuring it is not evident within the grounds of a property is a key part of the surveying process. It was initially brought to the UK to be housed in botanical gardens such as Kew Gardens and later sold to the public. However it has since been discovered that Japanese Knotweed can not only impact the property physically, it can also drastically affect the value of the home.
This hardy plant grows through concrete, property foundations, walls and drains. Some lenders have been known to refused mortgages for properties with a large infestation of the plant.
Environet’s Japanese Knotweed Heatmap revealed that with Sutton’s location in South London, cases of the plant are considerably higher than other areas in the country. Although not as severe as the infestations located in central London, both the town of Sutton and the London Borough of Sutton show around 121 cases throughout the area.
With this in mind, a property survey would be strongly advised to ensure that the home you are purchasing does not have an infestation of the land or the neighbouring grounds. Compare surveyors with Compare My Move to be matched with a professional and trusted surveyor in Sutton.
