Compulsory Purchase

Compulsory Purchase Orders enables certain acquiring authorities or government bodies through statute the power to acquire land or property without the consent of the owner whilst paying compensation to the owner.

Compulsory Purchase Schemes can be complex, contentious area of law and valuation. Legat Owen can advise on all aspects of compulsory purchase including where property is acquired, the value of the property, disturbance claims, severance and injurious affection claims, loss payments and Part 1 claims were no land is taken.

Legat Owen can act on behalf of individuals who may find their property, or part of their property the subject of a Compulsory Purchase Order, or companies who find their property the subject of a CPO scheme.  We can advise on both domestic and commercial property.

Our in house surveyor Liz Draycott has dealt with numerous CPO schemes on behalf of the acquiring authorities including dealing with the Part 1 Claims for the development of Jct 8 on the M62, land acquired for works along the M6 whilst working for HMRC, as well more recently at Legat Owen acting on behalf of a private client for land purchased due to the development of HS2.

In CPO schemes agent fees are normally met by the acquiring authority meaning there should be no cost to the client for seeking professional advice.
