We know how scary it can be to buy a property, whether you’re buying your first property in Maida Vale or moving to a larger place, there’s no substitute for the peace of mind provided by a detailed report prepared by one of our experienced Chartered Surveyors. We offer RICS Level 2 & 3 surveys and are waiting to discuss which is best for you.
After moving in to your new Maida Vale property, we hope you’ll come back to us whether you require advice on extending a lease, are planning to extend and require assistance with party wall matters or need an experienced surveyor to manage the project for you.
All of our senior surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. In addition, the practice is regulated by the RICS so you can be sure that we adhere to the highest standards within the industry.
Being a sought-after area with high property values, many homeowners in Maida Vale are looking to add basements to their properties to increase living space rather than move. However, basement excavation and underpinning is at the upper end of the scale in terms of risk and disruption meaning that party wall surveyors will generally be appointed.
One such neighbouring owner contacted us, having been served with notices under section 2 (underpinning and chimney breast removal) and section 6 (excavation) of the Act pertaining to a large basement extension. The job was allocated to our surveyor Shaun Blake, with his assistant Bawor, handling day to day matters. They held an initial Zoom call with their appointing owners, explaining the role of the adjoining owners’ surveyor, security for expenses, the advising engineer and noting any concerns that they had.
The owners have been very pleased with not only their initial consultation, but the ongoing communication displayed by Shaun and Bawor.
