Property Disputes

Property disputes, planning and compulsory acquisitions are the new battleground between ageing populations trying to retain proprietary wealth and the societal pressures on limited resources in a changing environmental landscape.

Our Property Disputes Team is well experienced in dealing professionally and sensibly with acquiring authorities, neighbours, councils and opposing lawyers. We are always prepared for the good fight and are not afraid to champion our clients when it is in their interests to do so.

In the event of your property being compulsorily acquired our compulsory acquisition team can help you to the best outcome.

Our property dispute lawyers are leading experts in their field and always strive to broaden and deepen their knowledge of property and real estate law, helping them to better deliver a comprehensive representation for clients from the business and private sectors.

We provide advice to parties subject to compulsory acquisition as well as those facing planning disputes (whether it is a high-rise development of just an extension), fencing issues, covenants or historic overlay.

Aitken Partners acts for, tenants, landowners and businesses affected by most major projects in Victoria as well as interstate and for many owners affected by minor road widening schemes and public acquisition overlays.
