State and local government authorities have the statutory right to exercise the power of Eminent Domain. Eminent Domain is the right to acquire private property and condemnation is the process that occurs to acquire that property. Eminent domain may be used for right-of-way, corridor, storm water retention, permanent easements, temporary construction easements, avigation (aviation), conservation or a number of other uses. When exercising Eminent Domain power, it is the responsibility of the taking authority to get a reliable appraisal.
The principals and staff of SignValue have extensive experience appraising signs for condemning authorities and their legal representation throughout the United States.
