WHAT IS EMINENT DOMAIN?
Eminent Domain is the power of the government to take private property for a public purpose. Under the Constitution (“nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation“) , the government is legally required to pay you a just and fair amount of compensation for the taking, including any damages to the remaining portion of the property.
If you receive either a notice of a government taking which affects your property or an offer to purchase all or part of your property, contact us now for a free case evaluation. We have expertise in evaluating the offer and exploring ways to maximize the value of the taking.
