Eminent Domain Lawyer in North Carolina
Maximize Your Just Compensation
Many property owners, both home and business, do not know this: the government can take away your land.
Under the fifth amendment to the United States constitution, as long as the land is taken for public use and the owner is provided with ‘just compensation’, then land seizure is perfectly acceptable.
If your land is being seized under eminent domain law, then you need the support of an experienced and skilled law firm to help you navigate the process and to maximize that compensation.
Minimize Your Losses and Maximize Your Value
However much land is being taken from you, it will have an impact. Firstly, while any work is going on you may be unable to get easy access to your home or workplace, and you may lose customers and other business opportunities. Secondly, when you come to sell your property in total, there will be less for you to sell – and it may now be a lot closer to a main road than when you bought it (for example).
The law recognizes that you need to be compensated for both of those financial impacts, which is why you will be offered just compensation. Frequently, the ‘offer’ that the government makes for your land is just not sufficient, and you will still stand to lose out, which is why you need the assistance of a legal team.
We can help you to get the maximum value for your land by obtaining the best valuations and ensuring that the compensation you receive is fair and full.
