There is a lot happening in our area in regard to the NSW government acquiring land, including the Castlereagh Corridor and the Northern Road widening and the proposed M0 Orbital road.  For many people in Western Sydney their home is one of their biggest assets.  There has been a lot of talk about stopping the compulsory acquisition process in the media, but if all or part of your home is being acquired then it is important that you get the maximum compensation and that you understand the process.



We are hosting a free community seminar to provide information about the process and what you should do.  The seminar will be on Thursday 6 September 2018 at 6:30pm at Penrith Bowling Club in their McAuley Room.  The seminar is free to attend but you need to register.




Bruce Coode

Bruce Coode from Coode & Corry will talk about the legal process.  You are entitled to more than just the market value of your home.

Bruce Coode has extensive experience in all property matters, having acted during his career for many individuals purchasing or selling a house, applying to Council for various approvals, as well as assisting clients who are the subject of a compulsory acquisition.


Bruce Coode

In addition to working for individual clients in private practice as a solicitor for all that time, he was a legal advisor to three local councils for many years, and has lectured in real estate law at university.



Helena Crumpton

Helena Crumpton is a real estate agent at Property Central Penrith and she will talk to you about the process of moving, for instance should you buy a new place simultaneously with the sale of your current home or should you rent in between the two properties?



Terry Davis

Terry Davis is a valuer from T.J. Davis & Associates Pty Ltd will talk about the value of your home and how it is calculated, so you don't waste time fixing things that won't add value to your home.
