Merseytram Compulsory Purchase Order Compensation Claims

Are you a business/property owner, who because of the Merseytram development proposals was affected by a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO)?

You could be entitled to make a claim for compensation because of the restrictions placed over your property during the period it was placed under a CPO.

Claim criteria

  • You own an affected property
  • You were running a business from an affected property
  • You are the lease holder of an affected property (the lease must have been for one year)


EAD understand that the cost of commencing legal action may be off putting; we are aiming to form a group of those who were affected by the Merseytram proposals in order to reduce costs.

Once we have received sufficient interest we will be conducting seminars to identify what criteria people fall under and what they are entitled to claim.

If you have suffered financial loss due to the Compulsory Purchase Order, please email us at and one of our commercial litigation solicitors will contact you.
