Helping you protect your property from condemnation and eminent domain.
Eminent domain, also referred to as condemnation, is the legal process by which a government entity, and sometimes a private company, is allowed to acquire property for development.
Eminent domain can involve displacing the property owner from their residential or business property in order to achieve the goals of the acquiring entity.
When can the government take land from private property owners?
Under state law, Tax Increment Financing (TIF) allows local governments to take individuals’ private property for private development. However, the Missouri Supreme Court handed down a ruling limiting the use of eminent domain to displace homeowners to further private development.
Eminent domain laws also give the city, county, and state condemning authority to acquire private land from property owners when it is deemed to have a public purpose or a public use, meaning it is in the best interest of the public.
Even when the government or businesses have a legitimate purpose in mind when taking your property, under the law, you are still entitled to just compensation.
