Compulsory purchase and acquisition is required to promote public interest in privately owned lands. Examples of such schemes include road widening schemes, road by-passes, sewerage improvements and Airport expansions. Northern Real Estate have a proven track record of success in completing compensation claims for clients who have been affected by compulsory purchase and acquisition schemes in the North West and beyond. On behalf of claimants we can provide advice on how best to protect their position if part of their land is included or adjacent to a potential compulsory purchase scheme. We also advise on negotiation and settlement of compensation claims to include appearance before the Lands Tribunal if necessary. Northern Real Estate offer a free consultation to advise those whose property may be subject to acquisition by statutory bodies.

Rating is an area often overlooked by occupiers due to its complex nature and lower impact than passing rents. Northern Real Estate provide advice on a wide range of Rating issues and offer a rates consultation and appeal service with respect to commercial property. In our experience this process can often generate substantial savings for our clients. Rates appeals are similar in nature to rent reviews involving extensive research with the aim of challenging the rateable value on which rates payable invoices are based.

Following the revaluation from 1 April 2015 of all Commercial properties we have already carried out a number of successful applications to amend the rating list with successful results.
