Blight Notices

In the event that the scheme is years away and claimants are trapped and they are unable to plan for the future or are being held back then in certain circumstances Whitecroft can advise on and assist with the service of a blight notice which brings forward the compulsory purchase process and can secure the best terms for doing so.


scaleMaterial detriment

If only part of your land is being acquired but that the loss of it renders the rest of your land too difficult or expensive to use then you can potentially force the acquiring authority to buy the whole of your land.

Whitecroft can advise on this and assist with progressing this course of action and securing the best terms.


Injurious Affection and Severance

If only part of your land is being acquired (this can be part of the same land or, for example, one of your sites/depots/ premises) but that the loss of this land means that you incur extra costs as a result then these losses are potentially recoverable from the acquiring authority.

Whitecroft can advise on this and assist with progressing this course of action and securing the best terms.


Expert Witness

Whitecroft can act as Expert Witness preparing Expert Reports, Rebuttals and appearing at Public Inquiries and or Lands Chamber (Upper Tribunal) in the event of compensation dispute.


Need some land back?

If you have had land taken but it hasn’t been permanently used for the CPO then, if various conditions are met, then you can potentially get right of first refusal and get ownership back in the event that it is not ultimately required or was only used temporarily.

Whitecroft Property Services can assist with recording your interest in doing so, valuation and negotiation for securing the best terms.


Your land not being used for what it was compulsorily purchased?

If land is acquired by a CPO Authority for one purpose but potentially after being acquired then used for something else. If that use is more valuable than the one it was originally purchased for then, if various conditions are met and within the specified period of time, you can potentially recover that uplift in value.

Whitecroft can advise on this and assist with progressing a claim on this basis securing the best terms.
