Compulsory Acquisition NSW

We act for numerous applicants and acquiring authorities in relation to the acquisition of land, leasehold interests, businesses, public open spaces, parklands and easements.


The compulsory acquisition process is covered by its own legislative regime. Each state has its own unique compulsory acquisition framework outside the standard property and conveyancing practices. These unique legislative regimes provide assistance to future urban planning and delivery of infrastructure across the country.

Our team of lawyers have extensive experience advising government and private clients on the compulsory acquisition process and application of the Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Act 1991 (NSW).

Given the dynamic nature of acquisition, the complexity of issues involved, and the constant evolution of common law principles, our lawyers are regularly called upon to provide detailed advice on issues relating to heads of compensation and disturbance.

We pride ourselves on being a market leader in this niche area of law with a proven track record of achieving the best possible results for our clients.
