Land Resumptions, Compensation and Valuation

We provide a strategic approach to land resumption and compensation issues for our clients, which is essential to minimise the risk of litigation. We understand the procedures and processes prescribed under the various federal and state acts to avoid challenges to resumption notices, and have established appropriate structures to efficiently manage multiple land acquisitions.

We have gained our expertise by acting for both resuming entities and for landowners in compensation negotiations and litigation. We appreciate the impact that correct land valuation has on our clients’ assets and represent clients in various proceedings concerning the valuation of land. We also advise on fundamental issues concerning the application of valuation principles in determining compensation
