How It Works

The Compulsory Acquisition Process

The process may begin by you hearing about an intended new road or rail line.

Maybe the first time you hear about the compulsory acquisition of your land will be when you are provided with the Notice from the acquiring authority.

It can be stressful and daunting.

There is however a legal framework whereby the government will compensate those directly affected if they have certain proprietary rights over the land.

Getting the right legal advice early can help you avoid a lot of the stress and understand the process.

PCL Lawyers can start the dialogue with the Government for you and negotiate on your behalf.

The goal is to represent you to gain a level of compensation which is fair and reasonable – and as quickly as reasonably possible in your given circumstances.
