No. 59 of 106 Things We Do For Clients
Help you understand and negotiate condemnation proceedings.
Because of our expertise in appraising a wide variety of properties, we understand the dynamics of a property condemnation. A property condemnation occurs when a local, state, or federal government seizes private property and compensates the owner. The power of the government to do this is called eminent domain, which essentially means the government takes private property for public use. Condemnations are complex. When this happens to a property you own or rent, you need professional advice. We have routinely helped clients receive three times the original offer from the city, state, or federal government.
