NEW PRODUCT - HS2 Search
HS2 is the new high speed rail network currently in the planning stage which will link London and Birmingham. There are also plans to extend the connection with two more lines running from Birmingham to Manchester and Leeds separately. Although work is not due to start until 2017, with a planned completion date in 2026, property owners are already finding themselves stuck with their homes, which one lender has now deemeed un-mortgagable (please refer to our blog for more information).
The GroundSure HIGHSPEED 2 (HS2) search is a report that clearly identifies whether a property is near the proposed route of HS2 Phase 1 or Phase 2. It searches properties within a 5000m radius.
The report answers 3 essential questions:
-What is the nearest distance between the property and the rail link within a 5000m radius?
-What is the maximum speed of the train at the nearest point (the speed has quite an impact the noise pollution)?
-What is the distance to the nearest overland and below ground line location?
The search costs just £15+VAT and is usually turned around within a couple of hours.
If you would like more information on the report or to request a sample, please contact us.
If you are not sure whether or not the property you're acting on could be affected by HS2 please review the images below (click to enlarge).
