Condemnation vs Eminent Domain

Condemnation, Eminent Domain, and Landowner Rights

The terms Condemnation and Eminent Domain are often used interchangeably, but the two words do not always mean the same thing. Simply stated, here is what they mean:

Eminent Domain – The power to take private property for a public purpose.

Condemnation – The court proceeding and legal process of using the purported power of Eminent Domain.

For over a decade, Trae Gray, though LandownerFirm, has been fighting for landowners under the premise that they are routinely taken advantage of and an under-protected group. LandownerFirm has represented thousands of landowners and is well known for doing so and achieving exemplary results.The attorneys at LandownerFirm provide protection in many ways, including but not limited to, maximizing "just compensation" for landowners and ensuring landowners don't give away more rights than they should when signing contracts and/or paperwork related to condemnation proceedings. Further, the attorneys at LandownerFirm have a unique understanding of landowner rights and the emotional challenges that arise during condemnation proceedings because we too are landowners.

Can a company take my land?

Yes! And for most Landowners the taking of their land is unwanted and seems to be an unjust process. The condemning company has certain legal rights to utilize and sometimes take the property. Companies know exactly what their rights are.

How can I get compensation?

Usually, the law provides you protection, but if one is not keenly aware of those protections, it can be extremely hard to bargain and get what you deserve. Essentially, you need a Landowner attorney to help you make informed decisions about your situation.

What questions should I ask?

  • Are you giving up or protecting valuable subsurface rights?
  • Are you protecting your water rights?
  • Will electricity access be above (poles) or below ground?
  • Are the terms clearly defined in the agreement?
