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 on compulsory acquisition 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 compulsory 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.
