Takings and Condemnations

As with other states, the governments of Pennsylvania and New Jersey have the power to acquire private property for a public use, even when the owner objects. While they must compensate the property owner by paying the fair market value for the land, they cannot take property for sale to investors who wish to develop the property.

Our real estate litigation attorneys help clients whose property is subject to this type of condemnation and expropriation to defend and keep their properties. More often, however, the central issue in dispute is compensation. To maximize our clients' compensation, we have their properties professionally appraised and conduct a painstaking review of both assessments to expose flaws in the state's case.
