According to the Heathrow Bulletin March 2016 states,
Q; When will I be able to approach Heathrow about selling my property,
Answer. We are expect to have a hardship scheme ready to open shortly after the government decision to proceed with expansion at Heathrow. People that are experiencing serious hardship as a result of not being able to sell their home may qualify for help under the scheme. Fore those who don't qualify for this kind of help but who live within the CPO zone (ie the area where properties will need to be demolished in order to build the runway), the first point at which you will be able to ask Heathrow buy your house will be after the Government designate their National Policy Statement for expansion at Heathrow. This means at the point which the Governments policy of airport expansion would become agreed by Parliament. We would expect this to be somewhere between summer 2017 and summer 2018. If people WAIT until a third runway planning consent is received to sell us their home, they will be eligible for terms of offer ie, unblighted market price plus 25%, stamp duty. legal and moving costs. We currently expect to receive planning consent in 2020...
So to sum up, if you want your entitled 25% you will have to wait until at least 2020 before we get our fair compensation, that in my eyes has just added another 4 years onto what is already a joke..
