Compulsory Purchase of residential property

Acquiring authorities have power under various acts to compulsory purchase property owners. Compulsory purchase powers may be used for a number of reasons such as road and rail improvement schemes, property clearance and property regeneration schemes.

The various Acts lay down a set of rules for compensating property owners who have had their legal interests compulsory purchased, based upon putting that individual into a similar position to that they were in before they lost their interest, either by compensating them in monetary terms and / or providing them with temporary accommodation.

If acting on your behalf we will value your claim under the various heads of claim and carry out negotiations with the acquiring authority or their agents.
