Can I stop the government from taking my property?

It is important to understand your rights in an eminent domain action to take your property. Under eminent domain laws, the government or its agents have the authority to take property for a legitimate public use provided just compensation is paid to the landowner.

Public use is a legal requirement under the takings clause (“nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation”) of the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Public use requires that private property only be taken for a use that benefits the interest of the public.

This means property can be acquired for such purposes as to:

In order to take your property using the power of eminent domain, the condemning authority must show that your property is necessary for public use.

In some cases, the condemnation of private property can be stopped if the landowner proves that the proposed taking does not meet the legal requirements for public necessity or that the condemning authority has not met its procedural requirements.

The primary goal of the condemning authority is to complete the planned project for the benefit of the greater public, not to look out for your individual best interests. You require your own legal advocate to guide you through the eminent domain process. A knowledgeable and skilled eminent domain attorney can assist you in challenging the government’s authority to acquire your property.

Eminent Domain Lawyers Hosting Workshop for Landowners Affected by Highway 270 Road Widening

As Seen in Hot Springs Village Voice

Garland County property owners who may be affected by U.S. Highway 270 road widening can learn about the eminent domain process at a public informational meeting hosted by the Krause & Kinsman law firm. The one-hour seminar on landowner rights will be 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7 at Candlewood Suites, 3404 Central Ave., Hot Springs.

“We invite property owners and the community to attend this free workshop to learn how private property may be impacted by the [Arkansas Department of Transportation’s] Highway 270 road widening project,” said Krause & Kinsman attorney Adam Krause.

Krause will facilitate the meeting and provide property owners with an overview of the eminent domain process in Arkansas and will address any questions or concerns expressed by attendees.

Some topics that will be covered:

“When facing possible condemnation, it is important for property and business owners to understand the eminent domain process and how to protect their rights,” said Krause.

Krause said ARDoT has a team of engineers, appraisers, right-of-way agents and lawyers working to ensure the project is completed.

“Property owners in the area are concerned that they may potentially lose part or all of their property as a result of this project,” said Krause. “To best protect their interests, property and business owners in the footprint of a public project should understand how their property may be impacted and what they can do to prepare.”

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department plans to widen approximately 3 miles of U.S. Highway 270 to four lanes, from Highway 227 to the Ouachita River in Garland County. The first phase of this project proposes to widen approximately 1.5 miles of Highway 270 to five lanes with bike lanes, extending from Fleetwood Drive to Highway 227. As a last resort, ARDoT could acquire land using eminent domain.
