Charlotte Eminent Domain Attorneys

Monroe Condemnation Attorneys

Under the law of eminent domain, the government has the right to seize your property. While the government may be able to take your land, you still have property rights. At the law offices of Baucom, Claytor, Benton, Morgan and Wood, our Charlotte eminent domain lawyers can help you fight back and maximize the compensation you receive for your home.

The moment you receive notice of the government's intention to use its power of eminent domain, you should speak to an experienced condemnation attorney. The government has to follow specific steps before they can seize your land, and our firm can help you protect your interests at the proceedings that follow.

Your Rights As a Property Owner

You must know your rights in order to protect them against eminent domain. Property owners have important rights. Here are examples of some of the most important rights you have to protect:

  • Fair market value: The government must pay the fair market value of any property they seize under eminent domain.
  • Full diminution of the value: The amount of money the government pays you should reflect the full diminution of the value of your property.
  • Representation: The government has lawyers on its side. You have the right to a condemnation attorney during the eminent domain proceeding as well.

Property Valuation

The value of your property is based on a wide range of factors. The government will always offer you a lower value on your property. The process of determining the value of your property is complicated. We can help you maximize the appropriate value of your property to ensure you receive the just compensation for any government taking.

If the government is threatening to take your land, we will make sure you get the full and fair compensation you deserve. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more.
