Affected by HS2? What you should do, and why

Published on: 26th November 2018

Despite recent comments to the contrary, it is very unlikely that HS2 Phase 2B will be cancelled in the immediate future and even if it is there is no guarantee that it won’t come back in some form or another, in years to come. If you have a property inside the proposed corridor of development, then it is best to act now as it is certain that as a nation something must be done about our infrastructure.

Phase 1, the line from London to Birmingham has been approved and is due to complete in 2026 but progress of Phase 2b, Crewe to Manchester and the West Midlands to Leeds has now been thrown into question.

 I'm affected by HS2, what should I do?

    • Engage with HS2's information seeking exercise and provide them with all the information they ask for.
    • Proactively ensure that HS2 are aware of your presence. Check out where you lie on the route and make sure that HS2 know what your land/property means to you.
    • Continue to monitor the situation.
    • Explore the opportunities for schemes to relocate, there will be regular changes as HS2 focus on individual sections of track.
    • Engage professional help - HS2 will generally pay for this, particularly if you're already in active communications.
    • View the relocation as an opportunity for your business. Consider where the best relocation for your business, customers, workforce might be etc.
    • Do not ignore this, we strongly believe that HS2 will not go away.

 

If you are lucky enough to qualify, or given the opportunity, to relocate we would advise that you take advantage of it.

Why should I act now?

    • The longer you have to plan, the less impact it will have on you and your business in the long run.
    • The HS2 effect will undoubtedly cause a spike in demand for relocation properties in your vicinity. The earlier that you act, the more choice you will get.
    • The property you are in will become less and less attractive as a security for mortgage/loan purposes. We are already seeing some lenders expressing considerable concern over properties they have some form of charge over within the corridor, not just those with fixed term mortgages.
    • Your future property may require work and there will no doubt be an increase in demand for tradespeople, meaning that prices will go up.
    • As vacancy levels increase, quality of life within these areas will fall.
    • Local authorities will reduce investment in areas within the development corridor.
    • Unsetlled workforce due to uncertainty, more difficult to recruit.
    • Customer confidence at risk - no guarantee you can honour contracts.
    • Finally, and most importantly, it will save you unnecessary stress further down the line.

 

We have a specialist team of compulsory purchase surveyors working with owners and occupiers of affected sites along the HS2 route and if you feel you might be affected then please contact us to discuss your options.

Business as usual despite concerns over future of Phase 2 of HS2

Following Chris Grayling’s controversial announcement earlier this month that the Northern Leg of HS2 is “not in the bag”, Richard Farr, head of our compulsory purchase team shares his views on the future of HS2 North of Birmingham. Phase 1, the line from London to Birmingham has been approved and is due to complete in 2026 but progress of Phase 2b, Crewe to Manchester and the West Midlands to Leeds has now been thrown into question. Setting aside any commentary as to whether HS2 should occur, Richard commented:

“It is very unlikely that HS2 will be cancelled in the immediate future, and even if it is there is no guarantee that it won’t come back in some form or another, in years to come. If you have a property inside the proposed corridor of development, then it is best to act now as it is certain that as a nation something must be done about infrastructure.

“If you are lucky enough to qualify or are given the opportunity to relocate we would most definitely advise taking advantage of it, after all the longer you have to plan, the less impact it will have on you and your business. The HS2 effect will undoubtedly cause a spike in demand for properties in your vicinity so the earlier that you act, the more choice you will have when it comes to relocating.

“The best advice we can give is to be proactive, ensure that HS2 are aware of your presence, know what your land/property means to you and provide them with all the information they ask for. It’s also important to monitor the situation and explore the opportunities for relocation schemes as there will be regular changes as HS2 focus on individual sections of track. At this stage, you may also look at engaging professional help, generally speaking HS2 will bear this cost, especially if you’re in active communications with them.

“Finally, and perhaps most importantly, view the relocation as an opportunity for your business, take the positives from your situation and start planning for it. We do not believe that HS2 will go away, so please do not ignore!”

We have a team of compulsory purchase surveyors working with owners and occupiers of affected sites along the HS2 route.

HS2 FAQs

My property is located on the HS2 route - what should I do? If your land or property is required for the construction or use of the railway, then it will be purchased from you, without choice. Both owners and occupiers of land and property on the route need to seek professional advice. The cost of your professional advice will be covered by the government. See paying for a specialist compensation surveyor for further information. The land for the route has already been safeguarded and you will shortly be contacted, if you haven’t been already, for some further information. You should aim to be as helpful as possible during this stage, as holding back information will not reduce the chance of a compulsory purchase, and may in fact hinder your case. What are my options if I’m served with a compulsory purchase order? You generally have two options when you are served with a compulsory purchase order; to relocate your business, or if this isn’t possible, to extinguish your business. For further details on the process see I’ve been served with a Compulsory Purchase Order on my business premises – what should I do? You should seek help from a specialist compensation surveyor, who will help quantify your claim. The aim of the compensation claim will be to leave you and your business no worse off, and also no better off, than if you hadn’t been served with an order. A specialist compensation surveyor will help you maximise your compensation, and ease the stress by liaising with the local authority on your behalf. What types of properties are eligible for compensation? All residential, commercial and agricultural properties are eligible for a claim. The claim is made for the open market value of the property not taking the HS2 scheme into account – plus for residential property a claim may also be made for home loss payment and reasonable moving expenses. In situations where all the commercial property or farm is required for the scheme then a claim can be made for the full value of the property – plus it is also possible to claim for business loss and disruption. However, a claim is unlikely to be successful for an entire farm or commercial site where only a small portion is required by HS2 for the railway. In these circumstances a claim in value for the area of land lost is made plus any potential reduction in value to the remainder of the site, disruption etc. How do I make a claim for compensation? Compulsory Purchase and Compensation of property is a highly specialist area and one where the burden of proof is on the claimant i.e. the property owner. You may receive an offer of Compensation from the Government but without seeking professional advice you may not receive everything you are entitled to or the full value for your property. Claims are open to negotiation, which is why it makes sense to seek professional advice from specialist Chartered Surveyors from the outset. What is the situation where my property isn’t required for HS2 but I still feel HS2 will affect me? The Government has an Exceptional Hardship Scheme (EHS) for owners who can prove they cannot sell their property because of the effect of the scheme. The Government will buy your house for its unaffected value. However, the EHS scheme will cease once the HS2 route is safeguarded, although the Government plans to introduce a discretionary hardship scheme thereafter. Where your property is not acquired, it is possible to claim compensation for the diminution in value caused by noise, pollution or vibrations from HS2. I wish to instruct a specialist compensation surveyor – but who pays the fees? All reasonable fees for advice relating to specific compensation claims and compulsory purchase issues will be reimbursed back to you by The Government. I’d like to make a claim or need more advice, can you help? Sanderson Weatherall has set up a dedicated HS2 team to help those affected. We have specialist Surveyors in all locations affected by HS2 and all have considerable experience in negotiating successful claims on behalf of property owners. With teams of property experts based along the HS2 route, we’re also able to provide businesses with relocation services, which include search and acquisition of new properties, as well as architectural, planning and building consultancy.

What is HS2?

High Speed 2 (HS2) is a planned high-speed railway proposed to link The Midlands and Northern England with London Euston and other destinations such as destinations Lille, Brussels, Paris, and London Heathrow Airport.

The aim of HS2 is to reduce journey times and increase the volume of seats available. It is argued that reduced journey time will help to stimulate economic growth in UK and also increase the country’s rail usage.

The project is being developed by High Speed Two Ltd, a company established by the UK Government. The line is to be built in two phases with the section between London and Birmingham being the first phase, and on to Manchester and Leeds for the second phase.

The route would take a complex form of a "Y", with a trunk between London Euston and Birmingham Curzon Street. The route would then split into two spurs, one continuing to Manchester Piccadilly via Crewe and Manchester Airport. The other route is proposed to Leeds via Sheffield Meadowhall and East Midlands.

Phase 1 - London to West Midlands

Phase 2 - West Midlands to Leeds

What are the timescales for HS2?

It is expected that the HS2 line will be operating by 2033.

The first phase, between London and Birmingham, was given Royal Assent in February 2017, giving the green light for work to begin on the route.

The second phase is expected to be given Royal Assent at a later date, but plans for the route are in their final stages and valuers will begin contacting land owners and occupiers during 2017.
