Condemnation involves the government taking private property for public use. It may be for a highway, dam or power line. In recent years property has even been condemned for private use such as shopping center. If you have received notice of condemnation of your home, a real estate law lawyer in Phoenix can assist you in contesting the condemnation or at least getting fair compensation for your property.
The power of condemnation flows from the government's right of eminent domain. This is a right which dates back at least to William the Conqueror. In 1066 he crossed the English Channel to defeat the English king at the Battle of Hastings. Thereupon he seized the entire land of England to apportion among his knights. The founding fathers retained this right in the U.S. Constitution but, unlike the Conqueror, stated that "just compensation" must be given.
