NS1

 

To move the following Schedule:—

 

‘Property purchase bond scheme

 

1          

The Secretary of State or the Promoter of the High Speed Rail Scheme (the

 

Promoter) will establish a market-based property purchase bond scheme (“the

 

Bond Scheme”).

 

2          

Bonds issued under the Bond Scheme are referred to as “Bonds”.

 

3          

All owners of blighted properties will be eligible for a Bond which will transfer

 

with a property affected by any High Speed Rail proposals or project whenever

 

said property is sold.

 

4          

Eligibility for the Bond will be determined by whether a property suffers or

 

might suffer loss in value due to the High Speed Rail proposals or project.

 

5          

The Bond will underpin the full market value of the property designated as

 

blighted so that the property can be the subject of a mortgage or charge and be

 

disposed of in the same fashion as if it had not been blighted.

 

6          

The Bond will be redeemed by the Promoter only after all relevant permissions

 

and consents for the high speed railway have been granted and if no purchaser

 

is forthcoming at the unblighted price (making the Promoter the purchaser of

 

last resort).
