Special circumstances or atypical properties guidance and frequently asked questions

Details of an exceptional package of assistance to owner occupiers outside of the safeguarded areas.

The government recognises that there may be some residents and businesses near the HS2 route who need assistance despite not meeting the strict eligibility requirements of the HS2 property schemes. This assistance could include the government buying their property, making a payment, or providing some other form of support that would not normally be offered.

The government is willing to consider these types of cases, which involve ‘atypical’ or special circumstances, on their individual merits.
