The impact of HS2 on Birmingham property

A high speed rail link between London and Scotland (HS2) is planned by the Government. Construction will be under way by 2017. HS2's affect on property values and the environment is of concern to many Birmingham inhabitants. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct a local authority search which will show if the Birmingham property is or will be within 200 metres of the proposed railway route. The exact distance between a residence and the proposed route will be difficult to ascertain reliably, as will be the impact on nearby property.

The HS2 Search

Only residences within 200 metres of HS2 construction work and the route itself will be identified during a local authority search. Furthermore building works will last for at least 8 years, meaning massive disruption for nearby residents just from the construction phase. A more exacting search is available called a HIGHSPEED 2 search, which includes clear mapping to the nearest point of the proposed route (within a 1, 000 metre radius of your proposed purchase and answers a number of questions). HS2 issues the search addresses:

  • In which ways will HS2's proximity affect the home? (e. g value, noise)
  • Is the nearby line through a tunnel, in a cutting, at ground level or on a viaduct?
  • Does the home line near the first stage of the route? (London to Birmingham)

The HS2 search also includes £ 10 million indemnity. We advise that you speak to your solicitor if you have any further questions.

Should you be worried if your home within 200m of HS2?

Construction work, traffic, noise pollution and vibration are all factors which could affect homes further than two hundred metres from HS2, but a local authority will not reveal this. An HS2 search will assist buyers of property close to the route to ascertain whether a home will be affected. In cases such as those arising from HS2, seeking compensation for noise and other factors is currently a lengthy process. Fridaysmove do not intend to comment on he merits of the scheme of the adequacy of compensation procedures.

Online Birmingham Conveyancing Quotes

Buyers, sellers and property investors who have chosen high street conveyancing solicitors may believe that discount fees marketed on a property legal website are indicative of poor communication.

Although it is true that there is wide variety in the quality of conveyancing from firm to firm, service levels, speed or cost have nothing to do with whether or not a conveyancing solicitor markets their services on the Internet.

Although some home buyers like the option of being able to visit their conveyancing lawyer, you do not need to do so. A proactive conveyancing solicitor will help to speed up your move more than one you need to visit in person.

Comparing conveyancing fees for Birmingham solicitors

Birmingham solicitors legal costs divide into two individual components, namely disbursements and legal fees.

Legal disbursements are extra fees incurred by the solicitor and passed on to the home mover for example environmental searches or a Homebuyers Report. Solicitors conveyancing fees are the sums that the client pays to the Birmingham conveyancer for the actual legal process.

The best approach comparing Birmingham solicitors fees is to always read the conveyancers official terms of business.

Additional fees can include conveyancing fees for stamp duty land tax form completion.

Conveyancing for New Build Houses and Flats

When acquiring a new build, purchasers can often be expected to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase before the building work is completed.

Conveyancing for a new build property can be an unusual experience, compared to buying an existing house or flat.
