Condemnation & Eminent Domain
The government has the constitutional right to take private property and convert it to public use. For example, part of your front yard may be taken to widen or build a new road. Governments use the power of eminent domain to “condemn” your property. This process may seem unfair, but landowners have significant rights during this process and the government must compensate the landowner fairly.
