An authoritative and comprehensive examination of the principles of law governing the compulsory acquisition of land in Australia.

This text outlines the principles of one of the more difficult branches of law. It aims to digest the many judicial decisions into a form that reveals the essential elements and also seeks to summarise and abbreviate the critical statutory provisions in each jurisdiction.

The book is invaluable for:

  • Solicitors called upon to advise or act for owners of land which is acquired compulsorily;
  • Lawyers, administrators and valuers serving in a government or other authority that are involved in acquiring land compulsorily;
  • Primary judges who are called upon to determine just compensation to the owners of compulsorily acquired land;
  • Appellate judges who are called upon to determine whether the primary judge's determination is just according to law;
  • Students needing a textbook setting out the principles governing the compulsory acquisition of privately-owned land;
  • Valuers called upon to assess losses caused by the acquisition to owners of land.
Important Features:

  • Authoritative, well respected author
  • Currently the only book on the market in Australia on this topic
  • Comprehensive - covers federal, state and territory legislation and case law
