      Compulsory Purchase

      However a compulsory purchase order arises, an experienced, informed and coherent view is essential to understand your particular situation and ensure optimum compensation for any loss accrued during the process.

      Murthly and Strathbraan, Perthshire
      Murthly Estate

      A 15th century castle situated in an 11,000-acre Perthshire estate requires sensitive and progressive management

      Across the UK, infrastructure projects affect hundreds of landowners with the potential to alter the value of your land and its future use.

      Timing is critical to ensure your current (and future) land-use strategy is fully considered when the acquiring authorities come knocking. Whether your property has been earmarked for road, railway, energy or telecommunication infrastructure, we know how and when to act.

      Compulsory purchase orders can be complex, but we have years of experience to navigate the system for you. We’ll dig into the detail and manage the formal consultations, surveys and valuations while keeping an eye open for any resulting opportunities.

      Nobody likes having their land compulsory acquired but we work hard to broker the best deal for our clients, taking the sting out of the situation. We consider the wider impact on your property, understanding your expectations and long-term aspirations.

      Our clients all have different objectives, so it’s important we listen and understand your circumstances before deploying our deep technical knowledge and vast experience in this specialist field
