"Eminent Domain" is the inherent power of the government to take private property for public use. "Condemnation" is the legal process the government uses to take the property. Although the government and utilities in certain cases have this right, the U.S. and Texas constitutions guarantee that landowners must receive just compensation for their property. The key to protecting your right to compensation is preparation of your case to prove the maximum value for your property. It is vital that you contact an eminent domain attorney in order to learn how to recover just compensation for your land.
