Compulsory Purchase Orders allow Government to obtain lands for projects that are funded for the purposes of benefiting the general public.

Compulsory Purchase Orders have been widely used in Ireland. The New Ross by-pass and Waterford City by-pass are just some examples of same. Property owners are often distressed when they receive a Compulsory Purchase Order and are uncertain as to what steps to take to deal with same.

It is our advice that the land the subject of the Compulsory Purchase Order to be assessed by a Chartered Valuation Surveyor. The Surveyor will assist in preparing a claim for compensation and accurately assess the value of the land in question.

It is also recommended to contact your Solicitor to seek their advice in relation to the Compensation Claim before it is submitted to the Local Authority.

Client Testimonial

MW Keller’s came highly recommended from a friend, and they didn’t disappoint. From the time we engaged them, to the close of our house sale, their advice was clear and concise. Once we appointed them we received a detailed email outlining all the various things we needed to do in order to be fully compliant with all the various bodies and authorities, including helpful links to websites to guide us through the process. Nothing appeared to phase them. They’d seen it all before and had almost immediate answers, no matter how complicated we thought an issue was. We would have no hesitation in recommending MW Keller & Son.
