Eminent Domain Disputes
Indianapolis Eminent Domain Attorneys
The government has a right to require you to sell your commercial or residential property for a public purpose. The government must, however, pay you just compensation for your property. This is known as eminent domain, and the attorneys at Clapp Ferrucci have vast experience representing both property owners and the government. We understand the complicated eminent domain procedure and work to ensure our clients receive the best results possible.
Property Rights in the Condemnation Process
The State of Indiana and local governments are to follow the legal process of condemnation (another name for eminent domain) to take landowners’ property for a public purpose such as:
- Road expansion
- Construction of a public building
- Building a new bridge, interstate or toll road
Although the government has the right to take property that can be used for a greater good in the community, the property owner does have Constitutional rights that must be protected. The property owners has the right to be compensated fairly for the land and improvements taken. Our real estate attorneys are highly skilled at making sure our clients, whether the condemning authority or the property owners have their rights fully protected.
