Will HS2 affect Oxford homes?
Development of High Speed 2, commonly known as HS2, is now underway, linking the Capital with Scotland. The first phase of construction will occur between London and the West Midlands. HS2's affect on property values and the environment is of concern to many Oxford inhabitants. To check whether your property is within 200 metres of the proposed HS2 route, your solicitor will carry out a local authority search. The exact distance between a residence and the proposed route will be difficult to ascertain reliably, as will be the impact on nearby property.
Getting a reliable HS2 search
Homes beyond the 200m threshold identified a local authority search will still be affected by issues such as noise, construction and road traffic. 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). The HS2 report is reinforced by a £ 10mil indemnity policy. Your solicitor can advise further if necessary.
My home is closer than 200m to HS2 - should I worry?
Local authorities will only provide information on the proposed HS2 development and route within a 200m radius of a property. It is obvious that properties further away will still be affected by issues such as noise pollution, vibration, construction work and increased traffic. The more detailed HS2 search will also provide you with more information. 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 the merits of the scheme, the UKs current planning system, and the time it takes to implement large infrastructure schemes.
Sellers and purchasers who have used high street solicitors previously might think the cheaper fees quoted on a solicitor's website are simply too good to be true.
Although it is correct that there is a broad range in conveyancing from solicitor to solicitor, fees, speed or quality of communication have nothing to do with whether or not a solicitor markets their services on the Internet.
Though some house buyers prefer to be able to meet their conveyancer face-to-face, this is not essential. A proactive conveyancing lawyer will help to move you faster than one you need to take time off work to meet in person.
