Compulsory Purchase

Compulsory purchase is when the government, council or a utility company has the legal right to buy or take rights over private property.

This is if it falls within a public or private construction project considered important for social and economic change. This can include airport expansion, electricity pylons and cables, housing developments and road and rail projects. Our Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) Consumer Guide is a good resource for more information, however if you need tailored advice you can reach out to any of the listed firms below for a free 30 minute initial consultation.
