Condemnation & Eminent Domain

Eminent domain laws or condemnation laws allow governments across the United States to seize private property for public use in exchange for just compensation paid to the property owner. Condemned property obtained under federal or local eminent domain laws is typically property that is deteriorated or improperly used, and stands in the way of important government development. Any landowner facing or seeking to block an eminent domain or condemnation action should contact an eminent domain lawyer for assistance in either fighting the decision, or ensuring just compensation be paid.
