Part 1 claims Earl Shilton

Part 1 claims Earl Shilton

Do you live near the recently built A47 Earl Shilton bypass but not had any land taken for the scheme? The good news for many residents is that under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973, compensation is available for the reduction in value of a property, even if no land is compulsorily acquired.

The reduction in value must be as a direct result of the use of the road from the following physical factors:

  • noise
  • vibration
  • smell
  • fumes
  • smoke
  • artificial lighting
  • discharge onto the land of any solid or liquid substance

It has been approximately one year since the A47 Earl Shilton bypass was opened for traffic. The importance of this date is that 12 months after the road has been opened to traffic, property owners adjacent to the new road can now apply for compensation to reflect the decrease in value of their properties as a result of the physical factors above.

Fisher German acts across the country for many landowners, farming tenants, property and business owners who have land and property compulsorily acquired from them. We are therefore qualified and experienced to act on your behalf to ensure that you receive a fair level of compensation. Your property is often your most valuable asset and we want to help you protect its value.

The Highways Authority are obliged to pay reasonable surveyors' and legal fees incurred by the claimant for negotiation of a Part 1 claim, so it is well worth using the experience that an established firm such as Fisher German can provide.

Tenants as well as freehold owners may qualify for compensation if they have at least 3 years to run on the tenancy before the date when the road was open to public traffic.

If you think you may be eligible for compensation, please contact either Richard Broome email richard.broome@fishergerman.co.uk or John Ikin email john.ikin@fishergerman.co.uk at our Ashby de la Zouch office on 01530 412821.
