Eminent Domain Damages to Businesses & Commercial Property

Posted by Inez de Ondarza Simmons | Dec 05, 2012 | 0 Comments

North Carolina Eminent Domain Takings of Business Property are on the Rise

Despite the current bad economy nationally, North Carolina continues to grow, requiring more and more public projects. As a result, North Carolina condemnations and property acquisitions in lieu of condemnations continue to increase. This is also true for condemnations of business properties. If you own, manage or represent a business in North Carolina located on property that is being condemned by the NCDOT, the City of Charlotte, or some other municipality, public utility or other condemning authority, you should be very concerned about any partial takings of your commercial property.

Problems Unique to Commercial Property Eminent Domain Cases

Frequently, the government takes part of commercial properties for projects like widening roads, especially at intersections,  or installing new water or sewer facilities. Commercial property takings have their own set of issues that can hurt your bottom line. So of those problems include

  • Lost business profits
  • Lost access and
  • Lost parking spaces.

You may even be worried about having to close a store.
