What Does Eminent Domain Mean?

When the government takes property through eminent domain, it has to pay the property owner "just compensation." This means the government has to pay you full market value for the property it takes.

Land Condemnation for Highways in North Carolina

Sprawling municipal government centers. New schools. More airport runways. Public works positively impact your community, and your life, unless they are slated to run through your property. If so, your land could be subject to seizure through a condemnation proceeding. While you may not be able to stop the condemnation, you can challenge the government’s low-ball offer—and get what you’re due.

When you purchased your home, you couldn’t foresee that it would one day become designated as the site of an interstate highway. If a new right of way is approved to run through your property, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) can seize it through eminent domain. In such a case, you can be forced to give up your home or other property. Let us stand with you to make it a fair fight. Our carefully vetted, expert land appraisers will assess the value of your property by establishing comparables, profitable usages, and other estimates.

The Raleigh eminent domain attorney at Thorp Law understand the emotional trauma of losing your property, and we’re here to help you recover the real value of your land.

If the condemner is not willing to offer a fair settlement, we will storm the courthouse gates to fight for your rights.
