HS2 compensation claims

HS2 rail link compensation claims for Yorkshire homeowners

Homeowners in Yorkshire worried their house price may be affected by the controversial HS2 railway extension can contact PM Law solicitors for advice on compensation claims.

The proposals include a new station near Meadowhall on a high speed route from Birmingham to Leeds.

The new line would enter South Yorkshire at Killamarsh and make its way to West Yorkshire via Beighton, Orgreave, Treeton and Catcliffe, Meadowhall on to Chapeltown before skirting Barnsley through parts of the Dearne Valley.

It could result in years of falling property prices, closed roads and construction disruption, according to campaigners fighting the scheme.

Homeowners whose properties lie directly in the path or very close to the path of the high speed line may be able to claim compensation.

PM Law solicitors in Sheffield can offer advice to those concerned about the scheme and deal with any compensation claims.

Harvey Harding, head of private client services at PM Law, said: “There are hundreds of homeowners in the Yorkshire area who are worried about how the HS2 is going to affect them.

“The criteria for those eligible for compensation is quite complex but here at PM Law we can give straight-forward legal advice and assist with any claims.

“To speak with one of our experts, call PM Law at our Sheffield office on 0114 296 5444.”

A number of councils have registered their opposition to the scheme.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: “A key argument for HS2 is how it can bring the North and the Midlands closer, linking its cities to create a new hub that for the first time in Britain’s modern history can provide real competition for London.”

Plans for the scheme are expected to be finalised next year. For more information and to view the route visit http://www.hs2.org.uk/phase-two/leeds or https://www.gov.uk/hs2-phase-two-initial-preferred-route-plan-and-profile-maps
