Buying in Merton

The southwestern London Borough of Merton comprises Wimbledon, Mitcham and Morden, appealing to families and retired couples on account of the peaceful atmosphere, good schools, low crime rates and a wealth of family friendly housing. Wimbledon enjoys a more energetic choice of bars, pubs and restaurant, buoyed on by the influx of visitors for the annual tennis championships.

This is a relatively wealthy borough, with less unemployment than the London average and a spread of properties ranging from aspirational family homes in leafy Wimbledon village to cosy Victorian terraces in Colliers Wood and new builds in Southfields and Wimbledon.

Merton has an average overall property price of £644,959 according to recent Rightmove figures. This is more expensive than nearby Kingston-upon-Thames but cheaper than Wandsworth and Richmond-upon-Thames. House prices in Merton are up 10% on 2016.

FAQs

What is a Stock Condition Survey?

A Stock Condition Survey (SCS) is the assessment of the current and future repairs and maintenance liabilities of a property. If you are responsible for managing a large property portfolio, we are able to carry out SCSs tailored to meet your needs – from surveying individual elements (e.g. kitchens, bathrooms) to full block surveys.

What is the traffic light scheme employed in RICS surveys?

RICS surveys use jargon free, easy-to-understand condition ratings based on three colours:  Green refers to ‘Condition Rating 1’ indicating that no repairs are needed, Amber refers to ‘Condition Rating 2’ highlighting defects that need repairing or replacing but are not considered urgent or serious. Red refers to ‘Condition Rating 3’ highlighting urgent and/or serious building defects.

I can't say enough good things about Able - not just on the survey quality, but also on the excellent communication. They knew I was in a hurry, and they made sure they gave me the earliest possible slot (about a week after paying). On the day, the surveyor kindly called me and spent half an hour talking through what he found, to put my mind at ease. The next day, I got a summary of the survey. And a couple of days later, the full survey report. It was incredibly detailed, and answered all my questions. It also listed the costs of each repair. A few weeks later, and after the searches came back, I emailed Able with a list of questions. A couple of hours later, the surveyor personally called me and spent an hour going through each point step by step. At no point did I feel rushed, and he spent time reassuring me about each item I was worried about. All in all, dealing with Able was the best experience I have had in the home-buying process, and I would be delighted to use them again if I ever buy another place.

Jack did a great job for us and was available for any follow-up questions in a timely manner. We got a thorough and professional report at a much more reasonable cost than other firms. Thank you!

One of the best people you want to use when considering buying a property. Communication was second to none and the report provided was detailed and gave me the assurance I was looking for. Very reasonable price for a first time buyer.

I am happy with service they provided. I was in dark regarding a house that I am going to buy but they stepped in and shed some lights and gave me some insights about the condition of the property. They are resposive nd helpful. I am happy with their service and also I have to mention that their price was reasonable.

My second time using their services, this time with surveyor Jack. As always: professional report, prompt response with follow up call. Honest (refunded unnecessary part of the survey). Got returning customer discount. Absolutely nothing to complain. They are ABLE, as the name says.

I felt good because of the impeccable services i received. For keeping me in loop all the way is very professional even when you couldn't reach the agent. The report was very detailed and the attention to details was very impressive. The Initial report i first received was very commendable. Great job and keep it up.
