Written for The Australian Newspaper – How to face a compulsory acquisition of your property
In this article I write about what to do if your property is facing compulsory acquisition. Is it a win fall or does it mean disaster.

It can be a stressful time if the Government wants to sell your house and knock it down to build a piece of infrastructure, so knowing your rights and understanding the process can go a long way to help relieve the pressure.
With so many infrastructure projects occurring in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, thousands of people are affected by compulsory acquisition (and it should be noted that rules are state based and differ), so the article was well received and I received positive feedback from people it assisted.
