What is a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)?
A Local Authority or the National Roads Authority can decide to acquire land for the purpose of building new roads or similar projects. If such a project is to go ahead, a CPO notice must be served on the owners of the land concerned. This allows for:
- such projects to go ahead
- compensation to be paid to the land owner for having their land compulsorily removed or acquired.
When you are served with a CPO notice it can feel like an attack on your property and can be a source of worry. It is important to engage in the process at an early stage and at John A. Sinnott & Co. Solicitors, we can give you clear, professional advice in relation to all aspects of the process, including:
- Interpretation of the legislation
- Communicating with valuers
- Communicating with the Local Authority or NRA
- Dealing with arbitration where it arises
