Compulsory Purchase is defined as the Local Authority's or Government's legal right to buy or take rights over private property.
When acting for clients in cases of compulsory purchase, our prime duty is to ensure the Local Authority pays the market value for property, in addition to other claims and benefits, including Home Loss Payment, Basic Loss Payment and Disturbance Compensation.
We act for clients in the residential and commercial sectors. With commercial property, claims can not only account for the market value of the property. They must also account for loss of profits, re-location to new premises, adaptation of new premises, redundancies, stationery changes, etc.
All our fees are paid by the acquiring authority, so there will be no cost to the client for using our services and receiving independent expert advice.
