With major highway improvement projects proceeding in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and throughout the state, Texas landowners are learning just how much power the government has to take private land for public use.
If your property is slated to be condemned for a highway project, or you have been given notice that a condemnation is in the works, it is important to know your legal rights. The attorneys at McFarland PLLC have extensive experience handling highway and roadway condemnations in Texas and can provide the guidance and advocacy you need. We are a trusted source of legal representation for landowners throughout Texas.
Highway adjacent property is often more valuable due to its proximity to transportation corridors and development potential for retail, commercial, and other uses of property that depend on the access and exposure that highway frontage affords. It is therefore very important that landowners obtain maximum compensation when giving up their highway-adjacent land to a public authority.
A highway project can impact surrounding land, restricting access or rendering it unusable for its intended purpose. This can be an important factor in a condemnation case. You deserve compensation for all impacts resulting from a taking of your property, including its diminished value, usability, or functionality.
