What Is Eminent Domain?

Eminent domain is a term used in the law to describe a situation in which the government takes private property, typically for a public use, such as for a road or government building.

The private property owner is entitled to be compensated by this taking. The ‘taking’ by the government can be physical (where the government actually seizes the land) or regulatory (where governmental regulations deprive the private property owner of the right to use the property for its highest and best use.)

Who Can Seize Property Via Eminent Domain?

There are many different entities that can exercise the power of eminent domain. Some of them include:

  • State, county and city governments
  • Electric and gas utility companies
  • School districts
  • Cemetaries

If you are engaged in a dispute over eminent domain, attorney Bryan Snyder can conduct a thorough analysis of the facts and relevant statutes to determine if the body seeking to use eminent domain law is authorized to do so.
