Condemnation – The process the government goes through to take a property without the consent of the owner for public use, through the power of eminent domain.

  • Example: – Sometimes governments expand highways or build new utility services in town as cities grow. As a result, they must acquire the land to do so. They use the power of eminent domain to forcibly buy any land they need for public use at fair market value. This process is called condemnation.
