Property Law Partner
Being told that a government authority intends to resume part of or all of your land can be very distressing.
Government authorities have powers to compulsorily acquire land and it is important to obtain professional advice from the outset to ensure you achieve just compensation.
We have experience in preparing objections, assisting landowners during the negotiation and acquisition process, lodging compensation claims and ultimately taking the matter to the Land Court if an agreement cannot be reached.
There are time limits on compensation claims. You should consult a lawyer immediately to protect your rights to compensation.
Connolly Suthers recently represented a national land developer in a claim for compensation under the Acquisition of Land Act, 1967 which arose from the compulsory acquisition of part of a residential master planned community at Townsville.
The claim was resolved at mediation.
