Compulsory Acquisition

Let us act for you to obtain the maximum compensation if your land or business is being acquired by the Government.

All persons who have an interest in land have a right to a claim – that includes owners, tenants and even those who have other interests such as an easement over land. In order to obtain the best outcome, it is essential to get advice before the acquisition happens.

Think of it like an agent coming in to force the sale of your home; it is prudent to ensure it is presented in the best possible way. That is what we will do for you – before the acquisition we will ensure we review your business and can assist you in working out what we can do before the acquisition. We will engage the best experts for your case and we have close working relationships with forensic accountants and barristers who specialise in this field.

Where appropriate we can also obtain assistance for you to engage a representative to locate new premises for you and claim their fees as part of the process.

Our legal fees are also covered and you will not have to incur the costs yourself.

Flo3  “I lost my business in North Sydney due to compulsory acquisition. Flo Mitchell fought hard for me every step of the way to achieve an excellent outcome significantly above the initial offer I was given for my business. I have no hesitation in recommending her.” – Business owner, North Sydney

“I lost my business in the CBD. Flo Mitchell was able to achieve a fantastic outcome and explained all the steps along the way. In what was a very stressful time, she was able to guide me and ensure that my case was presented in the best light, and she negotiated a very successful outcome for me that was three times more than the initial offer. I highly recommend her.” – Business owner, CBD
