Condemnation is the formal process whereby the government begins court proceedings to condemn or take certain property interests in land for a public project pursuant to its power of eminent domain.  

The taking may include real property, improvements, easements (both permanent and temporary) and damages to the remaining portion of the property.  In cases where the Government provides you an offer, request a copy of the appraisal and contact and expert in the area to determine if the offer of compensation is just.  At this early stage in the condemnation proceedings, we recommend that you seek a free consultation with a lawyer to fully understand your rights on the prospective taking.  The lawyers at Carolina Eminent Domain will provide you with a complimentary consultation for the purposes of better analyzing the government’s offer.  Call us today at 919-459-2192.
