Compensation for Claimants 

At Ardent we focus on compulsory purchase. It is what we do. And we excel at it. We also understand that whether you are losing your business, home or investment,or are impacted by acquisition in some other way, living through compulsory purchase is not easy. It can be stressful, time consuming, and frustrating.

However, help is at hand. Our team of RICS qualified claimant surveyors can call upon their considerable experience of dealing with Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPOs) to help and guide affected parties, providing support and advice at all stages of the process.

Ardent’s unique integrated service and project promotion experience means our team is not only experienced in dealing with the complexities of the entire compulsory purchase process, but we also understand the thought processes of promoters and authorities looking to acquire your property. This enables us to provide industry leading advice and whatever your business or property, we have the necessary expertise to guide you.

  • Valuation
  • Formulation of compensation claims
  • Assistance with promoter engagement
  • Submitting and managing representations and objections
