The world of compulsory purchase, compensation and wayleaves can seem like an unnecessary distraction from the day-to-day tasks of running a farm. However, ensuring you have the right representation and appropriate level of compensation is important.
Whilst many statutory undertakers and service providers enjoy legal rights of access onto private land, they are required to compensate the owner or tenant and pay an agent to negotiate on their behalf.
At Bletsoes, we regularly negotiate with statutory undertakers once they have planned to access land for installation, repair, replacement and maintenance of pipelines, cables and fixtures, ensuring the correct compensation with relevant legislation.
“My farm was significantly impacted upon by the A14 construction works. The knowledge and negotiation skills of the Bletsoes team has ensured that I feel well represented, appropriately compensated and most importantly fully informed throughout the process. It is good to have them fighting my corner. ”
