What is Compulsory Acquisition?
Compulsory acquisition is a statutory process under the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act 1991. The Act sets out the process that Government must follow when it is necessary to acquire property using a compulsory process. The statutory process also provides the means for resolving disputes about the amount of compensation that is payable to you.
Claims can be made for tenants as well as owners of land.
A business that trades from a premises will usually also have a separate claim for compensation. Flo has negotiated settlements ranging from $250,000 to $18 million.
FM Legal have acted in many compulsory acquisition cases and have consistently achieved far better outcomes and agreements that all initial offers. We have experience in projects such as Sydney Metro in the North where we acted for many commercial owners with businesses in the CBD, North Sydney and Crows Nest.
We acted for owners and tenants including for all the businesses in a shopping arcade in the Sydney CBD. We also acted for clients in Western Sydney for the upgrade of the Northern Road against the RMS. We have acted on the F6 project, Westconnex and the Beaches Link. Even in projects such as the Beaches Link that have not officially received the full Government approval, we have been able to bring forward acquisitions where owners sought to do so, and worked collectively, with 10 owners who were affected by the Beaches Link.
Flo Mitchell acted for 21 owners of homes in Randwick when Health Acquisition Authority acquired a total of 90 properties adjoining the Prince of Wales Hospital and had the largest number of clients than any other firm.
We also act against Councils including Liverpool, Blacktown Council and Cumberland Council for residents who were having their homes acquired.
