Support compensation estimates for property expropriation with independent valuations
When private property is expropriated by the government for public use, the property owner is entitled to compensation – which can include the market value, damages attributable to disturbance, damages for injurious affection or special challenges related to relocation.
One of the first steps in the process is to have the subject property or properties appraised to understand the market value, and in the case of a partial taking – how that remainder of the property’s market value would be impacted by the expropriation, i.e. typically a loss in market value.
Better defend your need for appropriate compensation
You or your client have received a notice of expropriation and need to take measures to validate the compensation you are being offered, and one of the most important steps you can take is to get your property valued by a professional appraiser.
Our valuation team has decades of experience appraising properties for expropriation and can provide you with their professional opinion on the market value and any damages resulting from a partial-taking, like an easement.
Our team of experienced professionals have completed thousands upon thousands of these specialized valuations. We have been hired on behalf of all parties – including government, lawyers and property owners, and are able to back-up our appraisals with expert reports and testimony during negotiations or in the case of arbitration or litigation.
We can provide:
- valuation to support estimating the compensation payable as a result of an expropriation
- estimate damages for injurious affection
- valuation support for right-of-way infrastructure projects requiring single or multi-property acquisitions
