Specialists in Part 1 Compensation

Learn More

Under Part 1 of the Land Compensation Act 1973, residential property owners are eligible to claim compensation from the relevant Highway Authority where the value of the property concerned has been depreciated by the physical factors introduced following the development of a new road or as a result of alterations carried out to an existing highway.

Who we are:

Graham Shortt first established the company in 1991 as a sole practitioner specialising in claims under Part I of The Land Compensation Act 1973. Prior to this Graham worked in Local Government advising County Councils on all matters relating to compensation and he has been a Fellow member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors since 1992. His son Martin is a RICS student member whilst currently undertaking an MSc in Real Estate.

With over 25 years experience of dealing with Part 1 compensation claims we have built up extensive knowledge and case files in the field which are invaluable when discussing and negotiating claims with the relevant Highway Authority. We have successfully negotiated millions of pounds in total compensation payouts for thousands of our clients whilst dealing with hundreds of schemes.

How we work.

If appointed we work on a No win/No fee basis and strive to provide a friendly and efficient service whilst at all times ensuring that the highest levels of compensation are obtained for our clients.
