Can you claim HS2 compensation?

hs2Here at Lewis Nedas we can process your potential claim for a ‘Blight Notice’ with the High Speed Two Limited (HS2).

In accordance with current statutory powers, certain home owners in specifically designated zones next to the proposed HS2 line are entitled to statutory compensation should they serve a Blight Notice.

A Blight Notice can only be made in compliance with various criteria which we have expertise in reviewing and assisting with. If successful, a home owner is potentially eligible to make claim with HS2, a non-departmental body of the Department for Transport which would ultimately be for the sale value of their home at an agreed market price and an additional pay-out of statutory compensation including payment for home-moving expenses.

One purchaser, a banker, decided to reduce his offer on the date of exchange (which fell on the day after the referendum) by 25 percent, an offer which was abruptly rebuffed by our client, the vendor, and the sale fell through. However, the majority of all our property transactions completed normally during this period because our clients kept cool heads.

Our multi-lingual lawyers have stated that thanks to the pound being at its lowest level for over 30 years and record low mortgage deals on offer, that there has been renewed interest from foreign investors from the USA, Italy, France, China, South East Asia, Qatar and UAE, and they have dealt with a large number of such enquiries.

London Property Market - A Real Opportunity for European Buyers

housing squareThe majority decision of the British electorate on 23 June 2016 to leave the European Union heralds a new dawn in the property market.

The uncertainty created by ‘Brexit’ has created new pricing opportunities for buyers who may otherwise have been unable to afford their first property purchase and encouraged overseas buyers, attracted by the cheaper pound, to purchase an array of properties at the higher end of the market.

Moreover, those clients who are selling their main residence and buying a new one, are now exercising greater flexibility in their pricing strategy. By accepting in some cases a lower price on their sale and successfully negotiating a larger discount on their related purchase.
