Condemnations / Government Takings of Real Property
Government and Municipalities have the power to condemn or take your real property / real estate through the power of "eminent domain." Government entities may take your property only when they pay you a fair or market value for the real estate that they are taking. Government agencies conducting these takings typically offer very little to a land or property owner who is unrepresented by a competent attorney. Our firm represents property owners whose real estate is subject to a government taking or condemnation. Our experience in this area of litigation allows us to obtain for you the highest amount of compensation available.
Our representation in condemnation actions is on a contingency basis only and will not require any out of pocket cost to you. Our fees are based upon a percentage of the amount obtained for you as measured against the most recent or highest offer of compensation.
There are strict deadlines and timelines associated with condemnations so it is very important to obtain counsel early in the taking process should you receive an offer letter or notice of taking from any government authority. Failure to respond to important legal deadlines could limit your recovery in takings / condemnation cases.
If your property is subject to a condemnation or taking, call Ben F. Windham, P.C. to represent you and obtain what is fair to you and not to the Government.
