Understanding the condemnation process and dealing with
issues of fair compensation for damages incurred can be complex tasks.
Condemnation cases fall into one of two categories. The first is the taking of
100 percent of a parcel of property. This is called a complete taking. The second is the taking of less than 100
percent of a parcel of property, which is referred to as a partial taking.
Complete takings, while not attractive to most landholders, are easier to deal
with in many ways. While the property owner loses the property, dealing with
the remainder is not an issue. In partial takings, the property owner not only
must deal with using the property in its diminished state, he or she must deal
with determining the amount of damage and receiving just compensation. This is
usually much more complicated than in a complete taking. Resolving a condemnation case that is fair to
the property owner can often be a daunting process. Selecting an experienced
and competent professional to assist in the complexities of a condemnation
action is necessary to ensure that the case is handled fairly and equitably.
