A property might be affected by a project such as HS2 but the CPO order has not yet been made. The effect of this is that it may prove impossible to sell or let the property.
A property might be affected by a project such as HS2 but the CPO order has not yet been made. The effect of this is that it may prove impossible to sell or let the property. If this is the case, we can advise you on the merits serving a “Blight Notice” on the authority proposing the works. Once a Blight Notice has been accepted it has the same effect as if the CPO had been declared and we can negotiate full compensation on your behalf. A Blight notice can be served in respect of any type of property. It just needs to be established that it is “blighted” by the proposals.
Property owners can also find that the value of their property is affected by a scheme but their property is not being acquired by the authority e.g. A new road or rail line being built immediately to the rear of a housing estate can have a significant effect on property values. Compensation for loss of value can be claimed.
To discuss how we can help you obtain full compensation if you are affected by Blight or a CPO, please contact Ian Stanistreet at Scanlans:
