Inverse Condemnation

Inverse condemnation is a legal concept that an owner of property is constitutionally protected against the taking of, interference with, impact upon, or damage to his property by the government.  In the event the government takes your property without the payment of just compensation, you have the right to file a lawsuit to obtain damages for the taking or infringement upon your property.  In order to recover damages, the property owner “must show an actual interference with or disturbance of property rights resulting in injuries which are not merely consequential or incidental . . . .”  See Long v. City of Charlotte, 306 N.C. 187, 293 S.E.2d 101 (1982).
