Many conveyancing transactions in East London are effected by the Crossrail Project as many Local Authority Searches reveal that the property being sold or purchased is within close proximity to the proposed Crossrail project. This should raise questions from those conducting conveyancing in East London where the project his highlighted in the searches as to whether the Crrossrail works will adversely affect the property structural or the use or enjoyment of the property. Crossrail passes through 19 Local Authority areas.
Specialists in conveyancing in London will be familiar with the Crossrail Search provided by Searchflow, which considers the impact of the project. The Crossrail conveyancing search will inform anyone with a property transaction pending as to whether or not the land falls on, or in close proximity to, the impending rail network.
Crossrail is the new high frequency, convenient and accessible railway for London and the South East. From 2017 Crossrail will travel from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east via new twin tunnels under central London. It will link Heathrow Airport, the West End, the City of London and Canary Wharf. It passes through much of East London and therefore is revealed in conveyancing Searches in East London.
Most recently, The Department for Transport (DFT) has published a consultation on devolving to Transport for London (TFL) its land acquisition and associated powers relating to the Crossrail project. When completed, Crossrail will provide a railway running from Maidenhead and Heathrow in west London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in east London. The main construction work is expected to start in 2010, with the line being operational from 2017.
