The Federal or State Government has the authority to compulsorily acquire private land regardless of whether or not you want to sell. Under Section 51 of the Constitution of Australia they can do so for a variety of purposes such as building a new motorway, other infrastructure, public safety or if they can’t get hold of you for any reason. When the government acquires your land you may be eligible for compensation depending on the property’s value so it’s worth getting your property valued to ensure you get fair compensation.
It is very rare that you will be able to contest the compulsory acquisition so the best you can hope for is compensation. The amount of compensation that you may be eligible for will depend on the value of the land so it’s worth getting a compensation valuation from an independent and reputable property valuer.
Getting compensation can be a lengthy process and the government will require a property valuation so they pay the correct amount of compensation.
