Our People

There are many chartered surveying practices across the country but few with expertise in the field of compulsory purchase.  At Roger Hannah & Co we have a dedicated team which specialises in compulsory purchase matters across the UK. 

Our team fully understand the procedures, statute, case law, how compensation is calculated and how a claim should be presented.  We are  accustomed to dealing with Acquiring Authorities and are fully acquainted with all the arguments and counter arguments that can be put forward in order to achieve the best possible result.


The Team comprises:

Stephen Lashmar BA (Hons) MRICS

Acting exclusively for claimants affected by HS2, Stephen is involved in a number of cases throughout the country, providing compensation advice, dealing with blight notices and undertaking negotiations. He is presently acting for a significant number of residents in Mexborough South Yorkshire as well as business in London and the North West.

Angela Juszczyk BA (Hons) MSc MRICS

As a Compulsory Purchase specialist Angela is experienced in acting on behalf of both claimants and acquiring authorities in transport, infrastructure and regeneration schemes.  Angela advises on all aspects of a claim from assessing market value, preparing budgets/claim documents to negotiating compensation.  She also has experience in formulating CPO’s and managing objections.    She has advised property owners affected by a number of high profile schemes including Paddington Basin redevelopment, Anfield regeneration and Leeds Eastgate development.  Angela has acted for a wide spectrum of clients including local authorities, national firms with large business disturbance or extinguishment claims, individual investors and residential owner occupiers.
