North Carolina Land Condemnation Attorneys
Eminent Domain & Land Condemnation
As an American, it is strange to think that the government has the right to take away your private property for public use. Under eminent domain, however, the U.S. government, state governments, county and city governments, and their agents often attempt to expropriate this land from its owner. When a government uses its power to take or damage private property for public use, Crumley Roberts is here to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
As a property owner, it can be overwhelming to think of going up against the government as you attempt to protect your land. The government and large utility companies (which may also have the right to erect power lines or build utility facilities on or across private property) have considerable resources to carry out land condemnation. Using the protection and power afforded by eminent domain, they may seize property and “compensate” the owner for its use.
At Crumley Roberts, our land condemnation lawyers are here for property owners across North Carolina. Land condemnation cases can be exceedingly complex, often dealing not only with eminent domain laws but also with environmental issues, zoning, real estate appraisal, and the involvement of land planners, engineers, and developers. Our team can work closely with you to make sure your property is properly valued or is protected entirely from condemnation, depending on the scenario and your wishes.
Protecting Property Owners’ Rights & Interests
If your land has been threatened with condemnation by a government entity or utility company, Crumley Roberts can work to protect your rights and interests. Your property should be accurately valued if you are willing to sell. Your rights should be protected if eminent domain does not apply in your case. Depending on the scenario and your specific goals and concerns, our land condemnation attorneys can work with you to seek the best outcome.
