If your property or land is affected by a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) specialist advice should be obtained at the earliest possible date to confirm your rights and to ensure you are compensated correctly for any immediate or future loss.
We benefit from having represented landowners and acquiring authorities and understand the importance to both parties of claims arising from CPO action. The combined experience of our surveyors provides us with an insight and the necessary skills to manage negotiations effectively to ensure the correct outcome.
In many cases, the acquiring authority will pay the fees of the agent, enabling you to benefit from sound professional advice at no cost.
We are currently assisting land and property owners affected by the HS2 proposals – see more information on our dedicated page.
When acting for clients faced with compulsory purchase acquisition, we always seek ways in which clients can best protect their interests and, where possible, identify any opportunities by which clients may benefit.
When acting for acquiring authorities, we adopt a proactive approach which is in the client’s best interest. This can include negotiating the purchase of property interests by agreement, and advising on improvements and accommodation works in order to mitigate adverse effects.
