Guiding you through the eminent domain process

On Behalf of | Sep 26, 2019 | eminent domain

A government taking sounds like a very harsh and negative event. While it does entail the government taking some or all of your property against your will, it does not mean a property owner in Florida or elsewhere has no rights to take action. Thus, it is first important to understand the eminent domain process, as this information can help a property owner take steps to best protect their rights and options.

Going head to head with the government in an eminent domain process can feel like an intimidating and overwhelming process. However, at the Property Rights Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys believe that when property owners gain a full understanding of this process, they are able to reach a more favorable outcome. Our goal is not to only help property owners in the Lake Mary area understand their rights but also provide them a piece of mind.

In order for a taking to occur, the government must prove that the property in question will be used for public use. Thus, our law firm will take the time to establish whether a proper taking could occur. This can provide a wide range of opportunities to challenge the taking. Additionally, even if the government is successful at proving that a proper taking is occurring, the government must also provide a good faith estimate of the value of the property in question.

At this point, the property owner can provide documents and evidence that just compensation was not offered for the government taking. Additionally, the property owner can also assert any possible damages that may be recoverable due to the taking of their property. Our attorneys can help evaluate the situation, ensuring full compensation is awarded in the matter.
