WHAT CAN YOU DO?:

You should claim compensation for the value of the acquired land and its effect on the land. There may also be a monetary effect on any business operating from the land. Your compensation is governed by complex rules and valuations. You are not entitled to compensation for “pain and suffering” but there are many possible categories of loss which can be claimed.

Ultimately, it is up to you and your legal advisor and valuer to negotiate the best compensation possible when an Acquiring Authority takes your land.
