Compensation Claim

compensation claims &
Utility and renewable developments

The firm has acted for our farming and landowning clients in a variety of situations where compensation was due. This experience includes compensation for crop loss due to pipelines, water pipes and electricity cabling, wind turbine routes, compulsory purchase for roads and railways, disturbance, access routes and also profits foregone as a result of existing infrastructure affecting business performance, machinery failure and contractor negligence. Electricity wayleaves, servitudes, renewable energy land leases and telecom negotiations also form part of the services provided by the firm.

Recent projects we have been involved with include the AWPR, Network Rail Aberdeen to Inverness track widening, battery and solar sites, wind turbine access routes and ongoing SSE and SSET wayleave and servitude negotiations.

It is normal for the acquiring authority or developer to pay reasonable professional fees and expenses, resulting in added value for our clients at no cost to them.
