undefinedInterstate 295 - Eminent Domain Attorney

Time is of the essence! Take action now to find out if NCDOT’s Condemnation Actions May Affect Your Real Property!

If you have property in the path of where the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) plans to build Interstate 295, you may have two different types of condemnation claims that will require the government to pay you money. The NCDOT has to tell you about the first type of claim. They do not have to tell you about the second type of claim.

The first claim is a conventional condemnation claim. You may be familiar with this type of claim, which involves the NCDOT paying you for the property it takes from you. At some point, a right-of-way agent will contact you about this claim. He will make you an offer. You can either accept the offer and settle, or reject the offer and demand more money. If you settle this claim, you will be asked to sign settlement paperwork. If you’re not careful, you could sign away your right to bring the second type of claim.

"Cost to settle landowner lawsuits could cost NCDOT more than $1 billion," as reported by The News & Observer

The second type of claim is known as an inverse condemnation claim. You have the right to bring an inverse condemnation claim if the NCDOT restricted what you could do with your property when it filed corridor maps that identified possible Interstate 295 routes. These types of inverse condemnation claims are often referred to as Map Act claims.

You may not even know whether you have the right to bring an inverse condemnation claim. The problem is that you must take specific steps to get compensated. If you do nothing, you will lose your compensation rights. Don’t let this happen. Your inverse condemnation claim may be worth more money to you than your conventional condemnation claim! This is the because the NCDOT must pay you interest from the date the map was filed, which was in 1992!
