Register for Compulsory Acquisition of Land - Compensation Master Class

Government Law Program

Under the compulsory acquisition statutory framework, a constructing authority must pay compensation to the land owner and other persons with an interest in land that has been compulsorily acquired.

Assessing the compensation payable is never as simple as determining the market value of the property. There are a range of other factors that affect the proper assessment of compensation in the compulsory acquisition context.

This workshop takes the opportunity to consider in detail some of the more complex principles of assessing and determining compensation payable under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967.

What we'll cover

  • When is a compensation claim properly made?
  • Who has an interest in the land and is entitled to claim compensation?
  • What is severance?
  • When does injurious affection arise?
  • The types of claims that are costs attributable to disturbance
  • Can a tenant claim the same relocation costs as an owner?
  • What does reasonable disturbance costs mean, particularly in the context of professional fees?
  • Topical issues such as deeds of grant in trust, relocation vs extinguishment of a business, special value, the Pointe Gourde / San Sebastian principles, highest and best use
  • Recent case law.

What you'll learn

You'll learn how to assess compensation claims in the land, interest in land and business valuation context.
