Representing Landowners Who Want To Keep What Is Theirs
Texas landowners facing condemnation proceedings are seldom happy to give up their property, even when a high price tag is attached to it. But eminent domain law is powerful. It gives government entities and private parties acting under government authority broad powers in taking land. The fact is, in most cases, there is little a landowner can do to stop a condemnation.
This does not mean landowners are powerless in these conflicts. In fact, they are far from it, as the attorneys at McFarland PLLC well know. Our law firm stands up for the rights of landowners facing condemnation actions throughout Texas. While eminent domain law is powerful, landowners have rights, too. Our attorneys are here to help you exercise those rights to their absolute maximum potential.
Is The Condemnation Action Legal?
If the condemnation is not legal, we can take urgent and decisive action to stop it. An unlawful condemnation occurs when:
- The party attempting to take your land is not a government entity or a private entity acting under government authority.
- The party does not intend to use the acquired land for public use.
- The party does not offer the landowner fair and just compensation for the land.
In most condemnation cases we encounter, the first two criteria are met. The best means for landowners to assert their rights, therefore, is the third point: by compelling the condemning entity to pay full and fair value for the land they are taking.
