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.

LondonGreater 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.

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 give you the salient facts when you are looking to buy your home in Maida Vale.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

When you get a mortgage your mortgage lender requires you to pay for a survey valuation of the property.

The aim of this survey is to give the mortgage lender reassurance that the property is worth what you are paying.

Although you pay for the mortgage valuation survey, it belongs to the mortgage lender and often you won't be allowed to see it.


It is paramount that when buying a property in Maida Vale, St John's Wood or Kilburn you get your own HomeBuyers Survey that reports on defects or potential issues with the property; either a HomeBuyers Report or a Building Survey.

Buying without a survey could leave you exposed to any repair costs or defects that you didn't spot. Defects such as subsidence can cost thousands to repair and would affect your future sale price if not repaired.

A HomeBuyer Survey will give you reassurance to buy your new home without worrying about what is in the closet.

If you aren't sure what you should do or which HomeBuyer Survey to get call us on 0207 112 5388 and we'll talk you through the options - this is what we do!

a mortgage valuation is not the same as a homebuyers survey, see an example from SAM Conveyancing
