What is eminent domain?

Eminent domain is a power granted to the government, which allows them to take the private property of citizens and businesses for public use. The U.S. Constitution requires that the land be for public purposes and that the government pay adequate or just compensation to the landowner for their property.

Common public uses in the state of Texas can include:

  • Highways
  • Drainage projects
  • Pipelines
  • Water treatment plants
  • Electric transmission lines
  • Schools
  • Parking lots
  • Renewable energy zones

What am I owed for my property?

Landowners, by law, are owed just compensation for what they own. This is determined by the market value of the property and what a willing buyer and seller would agree on for your property in the marketplace. You are allowed to put forth evidence of what you believe the price should be in front of a court-appointed panel of three Special Commissioners.

If you believe the government’s offer for your property was unfair or you are unwilling to sell your property, Murr Law, PLLC can challenge the government in court and argue that they are not offering just compensation.

If you have questions about eminent domain or need a professional legal team to defend you, call Murr Law today.
