You never thought you’d find yourself here, but here you are. The city, state or federal government is using eminent domain to take your land. Here is why you may want to seek legal assistance when dealing with the land condemnation process.
Why can they do this?
Eminent domain laws give the government the right to take private land from its owners if it is for the public good. These laws are pretty powerful and can be difficult to fight. Stopping the land condemnation process from moving forward can prove very difficult.
How can legal counsel help?
In some cases, it may be possible to fight and stop the government from taking private land. If that fails, though, legal counsel can help you make sure procedure is followed correctly and even help you fight for maximum compensation for your property. The government authority taking your property does have to offer you just compensation, but what you think is fair may not be in line with what the government believes is fair market value.
Fight for what you deserve
Losing property to eminent domain can be a distressing thing for any property owner in Texas to go through, and it happens more often than many might think. Know you do not have to go through it alone. You have the right to fight it, and if that fails to work in your favor and land condemnation is imminent, you have the right to fight to receive maximum value for your land.
