Compensation Claims

Informed, evidenced and skilful negotiation for a wide variety of compensation claims and compulsory purchase

Compensation Claims

Land-owners frequently find that a third party causes damage or distress to their land, either purposefully or accidentally. Utility companies regularly require access to property for maintenance of existing equipment or installation of new infrastructure. Private individuals can cause considerable distress by not controlling pets and cars crashed into hedges are not an uncommon sight. You may be due compensation for a wide variety of reasons from disruption to farming practices or damage to crops to the change in crop rotation for long-term works.

Compulsory Purchase

Where land is required for Government infrastructure projects, landowners may be left with no option but to forfeit land. Our team have acted for farmers and landowners on a number of projects including A500 Crewe Bypass, A53 Hodnet Bypass, M6 Toll, M5 widening, Wrexham Bypass and HS2 to name but a few.
