Government, Gas or Mining want to acquire my home
Southern Queensland is currently experiencing a high level of development in the resource sector with Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and Coal Mining in the Surat Basin. There have been large infrastructure projects, such as Toowoomba’s Second Range Crossing, approved and funded for completion in areas. CSG, coal mining and government infrastructure projects often result in the compulsory acquisition of land directly affecting the interests of landholders.
Landholders who are affected by compulsory acquisition may be able to object and potentially claim significant compensation. Our team has handled compulsory acquisition matters at State and Local Government levels including for the Toowoomba Pipeline Project.
On your behalf we can handle compensation claims and draft, negotiate and advise on:
Easement and Acquisitions
Claims for Compensation under the Acquisition of Land Act
Representation in the Land Court
If you are affected or likely to be affected by compulsory acquisition we strongly encourage you to contact us. We will advise and guide you through the process to obtain the best possible outcome for you. Please contact our office on 07 4638 5541 to see how we can be of assistance to you.
