Compulsory Purchase & Compensation

Compulsory Purchase is the process by which certain statutory bodies can acquire land from an owner. The land is generally required for major infrastructural projects such as motorways, railways and public utilities. Compulsory Purchase is a complex area and requires substantial expertise to ensure that all aspects of a claim are properly dealt with.

WK Nowlan has over thirty years’ experience in dealing with the assessment of owner compensation. We advise our clients from initial negotiations with an Acquiring Authority before a Compulsory Purchase Order (“CPO”) is made, to making, negotiating and settling a claim with the Acquiring Authority. We also have considerable experience in giving evidence at Property Arbitrations.
