Utility Infrastructure

Acquiring rights in private land by compulsion can be demanding: which is why our chartered surveyors should be your first port of call. No matter where the approach has come from – road, river, rail or utility acquiring authorities – our experts can take the pressure off and guide you through the mandatory process with a focus on protecting your best interests.

The rights being acquired may be temporary or permanent. They may be for land purchase for new infrastructure, access, maintenance and repairs or for easements and wayleaves. Whatever the situation or the scale, if you’re an owner or an occupier, we can help. We’d be happy to hear from you, email us at property@reesrichards.co.uk
