Compulsory Purchase

Olden Property Consulting provides specialist expert advice in relation to the compulsory purchase of land and property.

Compulsory purchase is a land assembly tool used to bring forward infrastructure and regeneration projects whereby land can be acquired without the agreement of the seller. Compulsory purchase is a complex area of surveying and can create uncertainty to those affected.

With extensive experience in working for both promoters and those affected by a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), Olden Property Consulting provide clear advice to clients to ensure they are fully informed from the outset of the CPO process.

It is important to take early advice once you become aware of the threat of compulsory purchase. Olden Property Consulting’s expert, timely advice will minimise the disruption caused by a CPO and protect a future claim for compensation.

We provide advice to residential and commercial property owners and occupiers from the date they become aware of the threat of compulsory purchase through to the final settlement of a compensation claim.
