Land Condemnation and Eminent Domain

eminent domain lawyer in North Carolina

“. . . nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

— Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment V.

Land Condemnation, also known as Eminent Domain, is the legal process under the Constitution where private property is taken for a “public use” by government agencies, such as the NC Department of Transportation and other state agencies, municipalities, utilities, school districts, and airports. But these government agencies and large utility companies aren’t the only ones with land rights under the Constitution—you, the property owner, have the right to stand up against the government or utility companies that want to take your property. You have the right to receive fair treatment and just compensation.

North Carolina property owners need legal representation to research the law and the facts behind the property taking be certain the condemnation is justified and that the action is indeed in the public interest. Even in such cases, the price offered for the property by the government or utility company often is much lower than the true value of the property.
