Under eminent domain, the government has the right to take possession of your property for its own use, if it gives you a fair payment in return. There are cases, however, in which the government uses or damages property and does not purchase it or compensate the owner for using it. This is where inverse condemnation comes in.
Through inverse condemnation, you can sue the government to take possession through eminent domain and pay you fair compensation. The attorneys of Jenkins, Bowen and Walker, P.C., can help you hold the government accountable.
There are many situations in which inverse condemnation is applicable, including:
- Noise from an airport or another facility has lowered your property value.
- You were not compensated for temporary use of your property.
- Government pollution has damaged your property.
- Regulatory taking-passing laws have damaged the property's value.
While these kinds of damages can sometimes seem small, they can take a massive toll on your property. Public transportation using your business's parking lot might seem harmless, but it can have a significant cost if it keeps business traffic from coming into your store.
