Knight Frank: Landowners need to act as northern leg of HS2 announced

By Spear's

Those farmers, estates and homeowners who could potentially be affected will naturally be very concerned

The government announced this morning the proposed route for Phase 2 of HS2, which will link Birmingham to Leeds and Manchester.
A number of cities along the route are disappointed that the high-speed rail line will not pass closer to their town centres, but those farmers, estates and homeowners who could potentially be affected will naturally be very concerned.

James Del Mar, Head of Knight Frank’s HS2 team, says: “Any land or property owners who think they may be affected by the second phase of HS2 linking Birmingham to Leeds and Manchester should take action now to find out the extent to which the proposed route will affect their property.

“Although actual construction of the line, if approved, may seem a very long was off, our experience working with clients along the initial London-to-Birmingham leg of the scheme shows the value of good preparation when it comes to putting people in the best position for any potential compensation claims.”
