Expropriation Law

Ackerman Law Office has extensive experience assisting landowners who face Expropriation. We do not act for Expropriating Authorities and therefore never find ourselves in a conflict of interest when representing the interests of property owners. We will ensure that you receive fair treatment and fair value for your land and we offer you the complete range of services which your case will require:

  • we will advise of your rights
  • we will force the Expropriating Authority to prove that your land is required at a Hearing of Necessity
  • if the Expropriation of your land is to proceed, we will negotiate fair compensation for your land
  • we will retain all necessary experts including the best appraisers, planners and engineers to prove the highest values for your land and interests affected by the Expropriation
  • if the Expropriating Authority does not make a satisfactory offer of compensation, we will bring Arbitration Proceedings under the Expropriations Act and the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (formerly Ontario Municipal Board) will decide your entitlement to fair compensation
  • we will force the Expropriating Authority to pay your legal, appraisal, planning and engineering costs.
