The Borough of Merton is in the south west of London, the capital of England.
We have over 20 year surveying experience in and around the Merton area. Our surveyors are all members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Independent Surveyors and Valuers Association (ISVA). We pride ourselves on producing a quality survey report for you and being independent means we are not affiliated to any bank, building society or estate agents and therefore we work solely for your and your property needs.
Please see some of our testimonials
We have taken years to produce what we, and our clients, feel is a quality survey report, written in plain English with photographs and survey sketches. Our unique Good, Bad and Ugly section discusses any property problems we find and offers you solutions of how to solve these problems, together with an estimate of costs of works. We also point out the good things we find in the property! We like to encourage our clients to come along and meet our surveyors during the survey to discuss our findings, and get a full understanding of your property needs.
We carry out a range of surveying services, whether you are buying a home where we can offer you a home buyers report, or a structural survey, or if you are buying or leasing a commercial property we can offer you a commercial building survey, schedule of condition, dilapidations report.
If you already live in a property and have a particular persistent problem, i.e. dampness, cracking, etc, we can produce a defects report.

At 1stAssociated.co.uk we have spent years developing and perfecting our unique Building Surveys. We have carried out Structural Surveys on everything from flats to Victorian houses, both large and small. Whether you are a first time buyer, or seasoned house purchaser, or a last time purchaser, it is not worth taking the risk of buying a property without a Structural Survey.
We have many unique things that you won't find in other surveys, such as our property sketches that we have developed over the years; we now have thousands of these, which help us to clearly explain to you where and what a building problem is and how to resolve it and the sort of cost we would expect you to pay.

There are so many costs involved in buying a new house and moving that it is important to ensure you have control over the costs. One of the biggest costs is not the building survey but the problems with the property that could be found after you move in. We are more than happy to talk to you about the type of property you are looking to buy and we are sure we will be able to send you an example survey as we have surveyed nearly every type of building there is.
