Expropriation Act

Imagine that your local council announces plans for a new road, and that the road is to pass through your land. The council will ask you, if necessary with reference to the terms of the Expropriation Act (Onteigeningswet), to sell your land for a given price. You now have three options:

  1. you can accept the offer;
  2. you can try and negotiate a better price;
  3. you can reject the offer and go to court.

So what’s the best option? 

Your best option is to discuss the alternatives with our professionals. We can help you make the right choice!
