Eminent Domain & Condemnation

Eminent Domain & Condemnation in Nashville

The power of the government, local or federal, to take private property for public use is called eminent domain, or condemnation. Private corporations, such as gas and oil companies, can be granted eminent domain for projects that will benefit the public. Though the project for which eminent domain is used may be said to benefit the public, it doesn’t always benefit the owner whose property is at the base of the future project. Those armed with the power of eminent domain may take property even if the owner doesn’t wish to sell, and that is where a quality real estate attorney comes into play.
