Eminent Domain

Eminent Domain – The power of government to force the sale of private land for the greater good public use. They must pay fair market value for the property.

  • Example: As cities expand, governments expand interstates and freeways. In order to acquire the necessary land to do so, they can call upon their power of eminent domain to induce a fair market value sale.
