Land Condemnation Lawyers
Eminent Domain & Land Condemnation Lawyers in S.C.
Federal, state and local governments have the power to buy your property for public use, even if you don’t want to sell it. However, the government must pay you “just compensation” for your land. In other words, a fair and reasonable price must be paid.
The government’s fundamental right to purchase private property to put to a public use is known as “eminent domain.” When a landowner and the government disagree about how much the property is worth, the government brings a “land condemnation” case in court.
