Resumption of Land and Compensation
Have you had your property take by the Crown?
Many residents are and will be adversely affected by the construction of the second M1 and the Coomera Connector between Loganholme and south to Nerang.
The Acquisition of Land Act 1967 (“the Act”) provides a regime whereby a person with an interest in land taken by a government instrumentality can claim compensation.
The Act sets out a process for the payment of compensation and referral to the Land Court of Queensland for the amount of compensation payable.
If you have received a Notice of Intention to Resume from a construction authority, you have the right to lodge a Notice of Objection in writing.
You have the right to claim compensation in respect of the taking of the land.
Under section 20 of the Act a variety of factors are taken into account when assessing compensation.
Owners and other parties with an interest in land including lessees and licensees have the right to compensation under the Act.
We have acted for a number of clients in respect of resumption of property concerning the Department of Main Roads.
We have access to qualified and experienced valuers in this area to assist with assessing the appropriate and adequate compensation payable for the land taken.
