The NSW government is facing possible legal action over allegedly giving the wrong information to people who bought homes in or near the path of a proposed motorway in Sydney's south.

Law firm Slater and Gordon claims the government wrongly gave information about the new path of the F6 motorway extension in Sydney's south and the Werrington Arterial project which could affect property values.

The firm says that at least 200 home owners who purchased homes between June 27 and October 24 in the area were possibly given incorrect information about where the motorway would cut through, and could be entitled to compensation.

"If residents had known they were purchasing in the path of a future motorway or other large infrastructure project, they may not have bought the property in the first place," Slater and Gordon senior associate Jonathan Wertheim said.

AAP has contacted the NSW government for comment.
