In the United States Constitution, it states that the government may seize private property for public use but must give "just compensation." This often occurs when a government is seeking to put in a freeway or dam which will encroach of considerable private property. In some cases it is not too intrusive such as the seizure of a right to put an underground power line through your property. Recently, however, there have been instances of the government using its power help private developers set up shopping malls and other redevelopment. Eminent domain issues are complicated and when you resist them you are up against powerful forces. You will need strong representation to protect your interests. You are urged to contact a Phoenix real estate law attorney from the legal team of Schern Richardson Finter to assist you.
If it has been determined that your property is needed for a freeway or other development, you will be contacted by an agency seeking to buy your property. You may of course be willing to sell and proceed to work out a suitable price. On the other hand, you may not want to move or not think the price is fair. If nothing is resolved the agency may bring legal action for condemnation of your property. You will need legal representation to resist this action. In court, the judge will rule on the matter. If the judge agrees to the agency's suit, the judge will then entertain testimony as to your just compensation. You will need to be ready with expert testimony as to your property's value and costs of moving.
