Hamer Associates is a specialist property consultancy providing expert advice relating to easements & wayleaves for utilities infrastructure, and compulsory purchase & compensation.
Our expertise in valuation and negotiation together with our in depth knowledge of the statutory processes relating to utility company’s statutory rights, compulsory purchase processes and compensation ensures we are best placed to advise clients how to extract best value from their land.
We act for landowners and developers, negotiating compensation from utility companies to act as an offset to the cost of removing or diverting existing utility apparatus, enabling developments to be delivered. Our team has advised landowners and developers on a number of the leading utility infrastructure cases during recent years. We also compiled the textbook ‘Electricity Wayleaves, Easements and Consents’, seen as the number one authority in the country.
Our team are market-leaders in all matters relating to compulsory purchase and compensation. We act for local authorities and developers promoting regeneration, transport and energy projects, and for landowners affected by compulsory purchase throughout the UK. In 2013 we established a dedicated team to act for landowners affected by High Speed 2.
