Executive Forum: Just Terms - s. 56(3) - A Legal Perspective and Recent Cases (N180529)

Sydney, New South Wales 2000

The Land Acquisition (Just Terms Compensation) Amendment Act 2016 introduced for the first time the notion of replacement value for special lands which essentially cannot be replaced at their existing value. s. 56(3) requires that land used for a specific purpose such as a park or church (but not limited to such uses) is to be valued on the basis of replacing that land in the vicinity of its location (or nearby) at a value which is unrelated to the specific use purpose. This approach in the 2016 legislation introduces a change in the way in which compensable worth is assessed, away from the venerable Spencer case which has been the basis of valuation and compensation since the early part of last century.

The above and other matters are to be discussed by Peter Dempsey, Dempsey Valuation and Advisory and Nicola Targett, Norton Rose Fulbright with the session moderated by John Sheehan LFAPI AM.

Who should attend: Property developers, property financiers, property lawyers, valuers, asset managers, property researchers, development advisors, Local and State Government agencies, property advisors
