What is Eminent Domain?
Eminent domain is the power that the federal, state, and local governments have to take property for public purpose projects, such constructing buildings, widening or creating roads, and further developing mass transit. So long as the “taking” is for a public purpose and all laws have been complied with, the only right that property owners have is to receive “fair market value” for their property.
What is Fair Market Value?
Fair market value is highly subjective. The government often will “low-ball” property owners in determining fair market value because they know that most property owners will not object.
This is wrong.
At Dore Law Group, we are currently representing homeowners seeking fair market value for their property. We represent property owners on a contingent fee basis, meaning that we are only entitled to a fee from clients for a percentage of the amount that we are able to obtain that is above the value being offered by the government.
