North Carolina Eminent Domain Lawyers

What is the typical eminent domain process?

Before a property can be taken under eminent domain, it must be declared necessary for public use.

Procedures for eminent domain will vary by jurisdiction, but typically, the government will notify you that your property will be taken under eminent domain and will offer a purchase price. If you do not wish to sell, the government will file court action to move forward with the procedure.

Once you are notified that your property will be taken, you should contact a qualified eminent domain attorney to learn about your legal rights and get advice tailored to your specific situation.
