Eminent domain appraisals require specialized valuation methodologies and a deep understanding of land use law. Our professionals have extensive experience in eminent domain valuations and provide litigation support for a multitude of property types and clients.
Eminent domain analysis is triggered for both full acquisitions and partial acquisitions. Partial acquisitions often involve complex valuation issues requiring an analysis of potential severance damages (may involve multiple mitigation scenarios), and possible consideration of project benefits. Partial interest valuations include fee acquisitions, permanent easements of all types, as well as temporary construction easements.
We have extensive experience working with legal counsel for both property owners burdened with an involuntary sale of property, and with public agencies acting to pursue major projects for the public good. We complete assignments ranging from those of limited scope that include one to five parcels to large, complex projects that may include several hundred tracts. The depth of experience in our local markets provides an invaluable foundation for our Eminent Domain valuations, and for the presentation of expert testimony, when needed.
