Defending property rights in Greenville
Our attorneys assist property owners in obtaining fair market value for property that has been taken for a public purpose, otherwise known as eminent domain. In eminent domain cases in South Carolina, a local government forces property owners to sell their property for what the government feels is a fair value. The land is then supposed to be used for the public good, including projects like building roads and highways, supplying utilities, or general public development, economic development, or civic use (such as schools or updated zoning for future growth). However, what the government feels is fair value is not always what the property owner wants, and many owners would rather not sell. Having an aggressive, experienced lawyer on your side can ensure owners receive a fair value, and governments don’t overreach.
