Spragins, Barnett & Cobb Eminent Domain attorneys will represent property owners who are losing their property to condemnation by a governmental entity, and governmental entities that are seeking to acquire properties through the process of Eminent Domain. As a former assistant attorney general, our lead attorney, Charles H. Barnett, III has handled hundreds of cases for the State and Local governments as well as property owners in Eminent Domain cases.
A Property Condemnation or Eminent Domain case involves a governmental entity taking possession of private property for the public good, which might be for a new road, school or military facility. Complex issues may arise in the Condemnation case including:
- Access to property issues
- Appraisal methods
- Environmental issues for property value
- Fair and just compensation
- Fair market value of the Property
- Inverse condemnation
- Payment for damages, lost income and business interruption
- Regulatory taking
- Relocation claims, moving expenses and re-establishment claims
