What is Eminent Domain?

Eminent domain is the government’s power to take private property for public use, provided that just compensation is paid to the property owner. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Public Use Requirement: To exercise eminent domain, the government must demonstrate that the property will be used for a public purpose, such as building roads, schools, or other public infrastructure projects.
  2. Just Compensation: Property owners are entitled to just compensation for the fair market value of the property being taken. Additionally, owners may be entitled to compensation for any damages resulting from the taking, such as loss of business or relocation expenses.
  3. Challenges and Protections: Property owners have the right to challenge eminent domain actions and seek fair compensation for their property. It’s essential to understand your rights and legal options when facing eminent domain proceedings.
