Will HS2 affect Barnet 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 Barnet inhabitants. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct a local authority search which will show if the Barnet property is or will be within 200 metres of the proposed railway route. The search will not, however, tell you the exact distance or help you assess the likely impact on your home.

Getting a reliable HS2 search

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. Nearby residents will likely experience disruption as a result of HS2 construction, which could last upwards of 8 years. A thorough search is fortunately available, called a HIGHSPEED 2 search. 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.

If my Barnet purchase is within 200m, should I be concerned?

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. A more detailed search in these cases will also help you ascertain whether your new home will be affected. For homeowners whose properties are blighted, the government has announced that a new package of compensation. These measures to help those affected by the scheme are expected to be in place by Autumn 2012. Measures will include schemes to streamline statutory purchase and sale and rent back procedures, and to accelerate small claims arising from for construction damage. Note that Fridaysmove do not intend to comment on the merits of the HS2 scheme, or the impact felt by Barnet residents and home buyers.

Home movers and investors who have chosen high street conveyancers for a previous move may feel that discount fees offered by a solicitor they found using an online search engine indicates that the process will take longer.

In reality, speed or cost have nothing to do with whether or not a solicitor markets their services on the Internet.

Our nationwide panel of property lawyers deliver the benefits of both approaches, market-beating rates, and the convenience of a property lawyer you can meet in person.

Conveyancing for a New Build Home

When purchasing a new build home, buyers would generally have to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase, in some cases, before construction has even commenced! There are unique pros and cons when buying newly built houses and flats. Advantages include the property being a 'clean-slate' e.g. for DIY enthusiasts, whereas cons include mortgage difficulties, particularly if construction is delayed.

When buying a new build property be sure to check that the property will be sold with an NHBC (or equivalent) warranty. Given the complexity and tight time frame of newly built properties, instructing your Barnet conveyancing solicitor as early as possible is strongly advised.
