Covid-19: Update


As we continue to monitor the scale and impact that Coronavirus (Covid-19) has on our daily lives, the well-being of our employees, customers, family and friends is our biggest priority, whilst continuing to do everything we can to meet your requirements for our services.
In light of recent UK and Scottish Government guidance we have unfortunately taken the decision to temporarily close our agency offices at Longtown and Dumfries Auction Mart.
All of our staff have full remote access to emails, documents and management systems from home so we will continue to support our clients remotely on a daily basis. Calls are still being answered via our normal landline on 01228 792299.
Stay Safe,

Compensation Claims for utility works

and Compulsory Purchase

When your land is subject to compulsory purchase or access is required by a utility company to carry out works, it is essential to get first rate professional advice as early as possible so that a pro-active approach can be taken to negotiations.

Professionally prepared objections can often reduce the impact of a scheme. We can assist with a range of compulsory purchase schemes including roads and transport, telecommunications and utilities.


As your professional advisors, we can work on your behalf to:

  • Prepare and submit any objection to the scheme.
  • Negotiate to mitigate the impact of works
  • Inspect the installation and execution of the works, as required – each scheme is different and requires it’s own solution.
  • Negotiate Compensation Claims including crop loss and disturbance, drainage damage, stock movements, loss of value, loss of land and time.
  • In most instances seek reimbursement of fees from the utility company or acquiring body.
