From time to time, a state body such as Transport Infrastructure Ireland (previously National Road Authority), ESB, Irish Water, and County Councils may issue what is known as a Compulsory Purchase Order. This gives them the legal function to obtain/take property without the consent of the landowner.The landowner is then entitled tofinancial compensation. This compensation comes under many titles such as the value of property acquired, disturbance (permanent & temporary), and injurious affection to name a few. These valuations are extremely specialised, and our valuers have represented landowners affected by many forms of CPOs. The good news is that these valuation services are FREE – the valuer's fees are paid for by the authority issuing the CPO to not incur any cost on the landowner. This is also true of the landowner’s solicitor.
