Top tips for a Maida Vale Home Buyers Survey


Maida Vale, to the north of Paddington in west London, is an affluent area to the south of Kilburn and touches on the beautiful Little Venice part of the Grand Union Canal.

Its name derives from the Hero of Maida, a pub in Edgware Road, which opened in 1810: its name was a celebration of the battle of Maida in southern Italy, where British military commander John Stuart defeated Napoleon's forces.

You can find many period conversions there as well as large 2 and 3 bedroom mansion flats and large blocks of 1930s flats – there are many of the latter along Maida Vale itself.

There are white stucco houses on Clifton Gardens. Many of the roads around Little Venice, such as Randolph Road, Randolphy Crescent, Warwick Avenue, Maida Avenue and Blomfield Road, have either a canal view or communal gardens or both. There are also a number of sturdy council estates in the area, with large Victorian houses in terraces in between, the latter most often split into flats.

New build developments include Amberley Waterfront on Amberley Road, which offers 47 new flats overlooking the canal.

Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Maida Vale area accompany the main Maida Vale road thoroughfare, also affecting streets such as Abercorn Place and Elgin Avenue. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways in the area accompany the Great Western railway, which crosses Maida Vale (road) to the north of the area, where Kilburn High Road station is located, affecting streets such as Belsize Road and Coventry Close.
Properties in various parts of Maida Vale, including streets such as Andover Place and Kilburn Park Road, may well be affected by the Crossrail and HS2 schemes.

If you are buying a property in the area and this is of concern to you, you may well wish to consider purchasing an Energy & Infrastructure Report. or a report specific to either of the two rail schemes mentioned.
For Maida Vale, raised areas of noise pollution mainly affect the main thoroughfare – Maida Vale A5 – and nearby streets, such as Elgin Avenue and Lanark Road.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

What happens if the conveyancing falls through before the survey takes place will I get a full refund?

If you need to cancel the survey for any reason at all you need to ensure that you have given the surveyor 48 hours’ notice before the survey takes place. If the surveyor has 48 or more hours’ notice then you will be provided with a full refund.

If however you only give the surveyor 24 hours’ notice then there will be a penalty of £50 due to the fact that the surveyor will not be able to fill that slot in time.

If you cancel on the same day as the Survey Date, or any time after the surveyor has attended the property then no refund is due however the report will be delivered in accordance with the terms agreed with the surveyor.
