Compulsory Acquisition: 02 July 2021
Rail Projects Victoria (the Authority) has now commenced contacting landowners, tenants and business owners who are likely to be affected by the Melbourne Airport Rail Link (the Project).
Within the Authority's correspondence, representatives of the Authority are offering to meet with anyone who is likely to be affected by the Project to discuss the impact that the compulsory acquisition will have on them as a landowner, tenant or business owner.
It is important to understand your entitlements to compensation and have a clear understanding of how the compulsory acquisition process works.
We are therefore offering to discuss your situation with anyone who may have been contacted by the Authority and attend any meeting proposed by the Authority on a free, no-obligation basis.
We will continue to provide further updates as additional information about the Melbourne Airport Rail Link Project comes to hand.
Aitken Partners compulsory acquisition lawyers have more than two decades of combined experience in representing landowners, tenants and business owners in compulsory acquisition claims in most (if not all) of Victoria's major infrastructure projects.
If you are impacted by the Melbourne Airport Rail Link Project, it is imperative you engage lawyers experienced in compulsory acquisition matters to assist you in obtaining appropriate compensation. The compulsory acquisition process is covered by a unique legislative regime that does not follow standard property and conveyancing law practices.
If you are affected (or you may be affected) by the Melbourne Airport Rail Link Project, please contact Natalie O'Flynn on 03 8600 6046 to discuss the Project and your potential rights to compensation if your land is ultimately compulsorily acquired for the Project.
