11/21/2019 – Taking private property for a public purpose

The government has the power to take your property for a public purpose, but that power is limited by the requirement that it must pay full compensation.  Full compensation includes not only the value of the part of your property that is taken, but also any reduction in value to your remaining property caused by the taking.  It also includes your attorney’s fees and expert costs.

There can be a lot of disagreement about the value of your property and impacts to your remainder.  Our favorite part of practicing law is making sure our clients are treated fairly, and that they receive the “full compensation” they deserve.
