Stage 6: Disputes

Land and Environment Court

If you are not satisfied with the compensation the acquiring authority offers you based on the Valuer General’s determination, you can lodge an objection with the Land and Environment Court.

Court proceedings involving claims for compensation are between you and the acquiring authority. If there is a dispute over the amount, the acquiring authority must pay you 90% in advance.

You must lodge your objection within 90 days of receiving the acquiring authority’s compensation notice. If you do not lodge your objection within 90 days, the offer is deemed accepted. However, the Court may still consider your objection if you have a good reason for lodging late.
