Whether it is for maintaining existing apparatus or routes, acquiring new rights or acquiring land for upcoming schemes, companies as well as private individuals do approach landowners and occupiers. In these circumstances our knowledge of the surrounding legislation enables us to provide you with specific advice tailored to your circumstances and to confirm any statutory rights you might have.

If you have been issued with a compulsory purchase notice and need advice or if you need a knowledgeable expert that understands the complex legislation to negotiate with the utility companies then our team can do this.

Whether it’s a highway scheme, road alteration, national grid pylon or collapse of a mine we make sure you understand your entitlements, prepare wayleave or consent documents, arrange and secure lease agreements and are committed to getting the compensation that our clients are entitled to.
