Compulsory Purchase and Compensation (CPO’s)

We Achieve the Best Deals Consistently

We have the qualifications, know-how & experience to get the best deals. We have successfully represented thousands of property owners over many years.

  • Compulsory Purchase is used in Ireland for many forms of infrastructure and development including roads and pipelines. Indeed Compulsory Purchase powers are utilised worldwide.
  • Compulsory Purchase is very complex and a specialised area. The laws and practice are complicated and vary depending the statutory body undertaking the Compulsory Purchase.
  • It is critically important that the property owner’s Consultant/Valuer is firstly properly qualified, and secondly, competent and familiar with the complex statute and case law and the various rules and practice involved.
  • For effected property owners we work right from the very initial stages of the scheme design through the planning phase and subsequently through the negotiation of the compensation and accommodation works.
  • Competent and skilful negotiations are critical to achieving the best possible outcomes.
  • Where necessary, we are highly experienced in the area of providing Expert Witness services for Court or Arbitration should it be necessary in any particular case.
  • All types of property are dealt with including farmland, forestry, house and residential cases and commercial property and amenities properties such as sports grounds.
  • We provide a service throughout Ireland and indeed have also worked in Northern Ireland.

Other Compensation Negotiations 

In many cases developers who do not possess compulsory purchase powers turn to voluntary negotiations with landowners. I have assisted in many cases like this including mining developments, broadband development and the installation of phone masts and the acquisition of land for access to development sites and so on.
