Protect Your Rights as a Property Owner
Although the government has always been able to take residential or commercial
real estate for the good of the community - to seize private land for
public use - the definition of "public use" is changing.
A recent U.S. Supreme Court decision allowed a government entity to condemn
land for a future for-profit use. This ruling may mean that in the next
ten to fifteen years, the government could condemn and seize the land
of any property owner and turn it into a shopping center or strip mall
- if the government decides that is what is best for the community.
McDowell Wells, LLP has extensive experience dealing with the taking of
private property for:
