The team at Meyer Vandenberg has extensive experience in dealing with compulsory acquisition by Commonwealth, ACT and NSW government authorities.
Compulsory acquisition is a complex area of law, made more difficult by the fact that the onus is on the displaced owner to put together their claim for compensation. The claim must set out the amount of compensation sought and needs to be supported by evidence. Depending on the place of acquisition, and what is acquired, there are various heads of compensation available to a displaced owner and various ways of calculating that compensation.
If your property is compulsorily acquired, you need to act swiftly with expert advice to ensure you take advantage of all options open to you under the relevant Commonwealth, State or Territory compulsory acquisition legislation and get all the compensation you are entitled to.
At Meyer Vandenberg, we understand the nuances of the claim process and are experienced in compiling complex compensation claims. We will work with you to ensure you receive the highest compensation for what you have lost.
