Utilities & Compulsory Purchase

Howie, Kent & Co act for landowners and farmers in dealing with utility companies when water, gas or electricity companies require to carry out work on their land. We liaise with the utility company on your behalf to negotiate access provisions, wayleave or easement payments and crop loss claims. In most cases, professional fees are covered by the utility firm. We are also able to negotiate on your behalf or offer advice in respect of any area of compulsory purchase including new roads and other types of land take.
