You own a business on land that the government hopes to condemn for public works. Although you have owned and maintained your business for years, the eminent domain process may allow the government to quickly obtain your land and use it for city projects. Know that if you receive notice for eminent domain, you are not alone, and an attorney can help you in your quest for compensation.
Eminent domain exists to give the government an opportunity to condemn your property for public uses. Whether the government seeks to obtain your land, and subsequently your business, for electrical facilities, roadways, sewer systems or telephone pole sites, you want to receive compensation for your loss of property. A negotiation process exists to determine your business's worth, but you feel you deserve more than its face-value due to your new loss of income and career. Hiring an experienced property rights attorney may help you in obtaining these necessary funds and offer you peace of mind should the government condemn your property.
