Compulsory acquisitions can be a daunting and confusing experience. At SWS Lawyers, we advise on all aspects of negotiations with acquiring authorities in all types of compulsory acquisitions, and act in Class 3 Proceedings in circumstances where a landowner challenges the compensation determined by the Valuer-General.
Compulsory acquisition of land often occurs due to circumstances beyond the control of a landowner. Landowners are faced with a sophisticated and well-resourced acquiring authority in a government agency (including local Councils). Our lawyers have many years of expertise in acting for parties affected by compulsory acquisitions, and are well-versed in the process of acquisition, from the time of receipt of a notice until finalisation of the acquisition.
SWS Lawyers acts on behalf of individual landowners with varying interests in land (for example, lessees or benefited parties under an easement), farmers, property developers, owners corporations (and affected strata lot owners), large and small businesses from various industries and acquiring authorities.
