Road and Rail

We provide

comprehensive assistance and advice to landowners, homeowners and businesses affected by road and rail schemes.

Our services include:

  • The negotiation of compensation where land is taken for new road and rail schemes and highway improvements. This includes all representations and securing advance compensation payments
  • The preparation of Part 1 claims. This is compensation that can be claimed where no land has been taken for a scheme, but owned or occupied property has been reduced in value due to physical factors caused by the use of a new or altered road
  • Dealing with access requests received by our clients from Network Rail. This includes situations where a railway bridge or other infrastructure is being repaired. We are experienced in ensuring that our clients enter into robust agreements that safeguard their property and secure appropriate remuneration and land restoration/compensation provisions
