Compulsory Purchase Orders And Compensation

A solid understanding of compulsory purchase orders, blight notices and purchase notices can be one of the most powerful tools in a planning solicitor's arsenal. Knowing the best possible way to negotiate these orders and notices, which can become quite complex in certain situations, requires time, insight and intelligence. Kingsley Smith Solicitors can help you achieve the best possible outcome when dealing with compulsory purchase orders, blight notices, or purchase notices.

Compulsory purchase orders, blight notices and purchase notices are all related in the sense that they all relate to how and in what circumstances an authority will purchase your property from you. A compulsory purchase order allows the government to purchase land or property without the owner's consent; a blight notice allows you to force an authority to purchase 'blighted' land or property from you, generally associated with public works such as motorways or airports; and a purchase notice allows you to force an authority to purchase any land or property from you, provided that it is unusable because of certain requirements or refused permissions coming from that authority.

Blight notices and purchase notices can be very useful for property owners, while a properly-negotiated compulsory purchase order can result in the most satisfactory result possible.
