Resumption & Compensation

Our Practice

As works for infrastructure increase across the State, so too does the resumption of land from private owners. We are able to assist you as a landowner or affected person by identifying and advising on your rights following notice that your land or part of it will be resumed.

We will give you practical legal advice to help make the resumption process less stressful and ensure you are fully compensated for the loss of your land and/or business.

Our Expertise

We are able to assist you by:

  • advising as to whether a proposed resumption is lawful
  • drafting an objection to the proposed resumption
  • advising you of your entitlements
  • preparing your claim for compensation
  • negotiating with the resuming authority
  • acting for you in proceedings in the Land Court of Queensland
  • advising on the implications of the resumption for your future use of your land
