What is Eminent Domain?

The process of eminent domain in North Carolina, also known as condemnation or land condemnation, involves the local, state, or federal government taking ownership of private property for public use. In some instances, some agencies that serve the public, such as utility companies, may exercise eminent domain to seize private property. If eminent domain is used to take property, the government or the agency responsible must pay “just compensation” based on the property’s fair market value.

Government often uses eminent domain for public works projects such as road widening, highway construction, or the installation of new electrical or plumbing lines.

Eminent Domain can also be used to build new schools, libraries, police stations, or other public-service properties.

To take your property under eminent domain, the government must show that it is for “public use,” as well as showing that it is “necessary.” For example, if the building of new power lines will require 100 feet of your property, then it does not need to take 200 feet.

The government can use eminent domain to take all or only part of a property, and any land taken must be necessary for public use.

Eminent Domain abuse in North Carolina

The use of public property for unknown reasons can be broadly defined, resulting in the seizure of private property.


As an example, the government has seized private land in blighted areas for redevelopment, and has taken private property to build shopping centers, movie theaters, and other commercial establishments.

Even when exercising eminent domain entirely for the purpose of increasing tax revenue, these cases have been upheld by the courts.

North Carolina Eminent Domain Attorneys

If you don’t want to sell your property, the government can take it through eminent domain.

You may feel intimidated and confused when you hear that the government wants to take your property. A government official may claim they have the ‘right’ to take your property, and you may feel you have no other options or that if you protest, you will impede public progress. You may think you weren’t owed much more for your property based on an offer that seems reasonable and fair, even though you’ve been shown a real-estate appraisal.


Understanding your rights under the law can be facilitated by a qualified eminent domain lawyer. A lawyer who specializes in eminent domain can help you determine if the taking of your property is really justified, and if the amount offered is fair.

You can consult with one of our North Carolina eminent domain attorneys if you have recently learned that the government intends to take your properties under eminent domain.
