  • Condominium formation, bylaws, disputes

Eminent Domain and Condemnation

The government has the power to take private land for redevelopment. This is called the power of eminent domain, and it is pursued through the process of condemnation. In order to take a private property, the government or a quasi-governmental body must prove that the development is reasonable and necessary. It is required to pay just compensation for the property. Generally you will need legal help to get just compensation.

There are so many issues with this uniquely powerful American right of property ownership. Ownership rights can involve minerals, oil, easements, rights of way, and the right to buy, sell, lease, farm, improve, destroy, mortgage, encumber or transfer property. These are called the bundle of rights. Our St. Louis eminent domain lawyers can protect these rights for our clients.
