Eminent Domain & Condemnation is a complex aspect of law which involves the right of the government, either local or federal, to seize private land from an individual or company. They can do this without the consent of the owner of said land. However, the government can only take this land if it is for public use, such as road building or construction. Fighting back against these seizures can require the help of eminent domain attorneys, such as those employed by The Potts Law Firm.
Fair Value of Property
The fifth amendment to the constitution guarantees that you be paid a fair value for land seized by the government. However, the word ‘fair’ is highly variable and often determined by the government. Trained eminent domain attorneys will be able to help you get an actual fair market value for your home, property or business after it has been seized. This means that they will judge based on similar eminent domain & condemnation cases and the damages awarded to your neighbors in order to ascertain what a fair price for the land in question may be.
Another big thing that eminent domain attorneys can help you get is damages. This can be especially beneficial for people who have had their businesses seized by the government in an eminent domain & condemnation case. This can include multiple forms of damages. Severance damages may occur when only part of a parcel of land is condemned. The rest of the parcel can be damages by this process. Pre-condemnation damages can also arise from this type of case.

They will make sure that you are able to move into a new home, office or location without worrying about where the money is going to come from.
