While you may not be able to prevent the resumption taking place, the legislation requires you to be appropriately compensated.
Usually you’ll receive a “market value” for your property, but there are a few ways this can be calculated. Valuations can also be increased to take account of non-financial disadvantages, such as the inconvenience suffered by you, your age or the fact you may have been living in your residence for a long time.
If you can’t agree on the amount of compensation you’ve been offered by the Government body, you can apply to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for resolution, or to the Supreme Court.
Wherever you live in Victoria, we can help you through this process step by step, ensuring you get the compensation you deserve.
