Will HS2 affect Westminster homes?

Development of High Speed 2, commonly known as HS2, is now underway, linking the Capital with Scotland. The first phase is between London and the West Midlands and could be up and running by 2026. However, construction works are due to begin as soon 2017. HS2's affect on property values and the environment is of concern to many Westminster inhabitants. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct a local authority search to confirm how close the HS2 line lies to your proposed purchase. The exact distance between a residence and the proposed route will be difficult to ascertain reliably, as will be the impact on nearby property.

Should you get a more accurate HS2 search?

Properties further than 200m away from the line, and therefore not covered by the relevant local authority search, will nevertheless be affected, and works will last for at least eight years. This may mean long-term and extensive disruption to the enjoyment of your property if you choose to buy in affected parts of Westminster. 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):

  • Is the property located near stage one of the line?
  • How will works affect the property?
  • How will the fully operational line affect the property in years to come?
  • Is the nearby route in a cutting, in a tunnel, or on a viaduct?

A £ 10 million indemnity insurance also protects homeowners receiving a HS2 search. We advise that you speak to your solicitor if you have any further questions.

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. This is primarily why a detailed search will be useful, offering more information as to HS2's impact on homes lying very close to the line. For affected residences, the government is launching new compensation measures by Autumn 2012. Fridaysmove do not intend to comment on the merits of the scheme, nevertheless, the UKs current planning system, and the time it takes to implement large infrastructure schemes.
