Compulsory Purchase

If your land/property is required for a new road, or if there have been road alterations which you feel have affected your property, a major redevelopment, or one of the utility suppliers wants to lay new pipes or wires across your land, the statutory powers the acquiring authorities possess are extensive. So too are your rights under legislation to fair compensation.

You may not be able to prevent the proposed works but have the right to make representations on them.

Our team is experienced in ensuring that the rules of compensation are correctly applied to each claim; that temporary as well as long term losses are compensated; and that the authority carries out reasonable works to help mitigate the impact of the works.

Our aim is to engage with the authority at an early stage to help ensure a satisfactory and amicable settlement. Where this is not possible we can advise on the merits, benefits and risks of taking your claim to the Lands Chamber of the Upper Tribunal.

If you would like to discuss this service further, please do not hesitate to contact us.
