Stand your ground
Whether farmland or an office complex, real estate can be your clients’ most valuable asset. But what happens when the government wants to take that private property for a public use?
Using the power of eminent domain, a local, state, or federal government may seize private property and compensate the owner. Although it’s most commonly used to acquire land for highway construction, utility projects, or public parks, it can even be used to redevelop a blighted property.
At Build Your Practice: An Introduction to Condemnation, you’ll learn the basics of the condemnation process and receive the tools you need to help your clients defend their property rights.

An Introduction to Condemnation explains the circumstances necessary for the government to exercise its eminent domain power. Know what constitutes a compensable taking of property.
