FINANCIAL COMPENSATION IS A STATUTORY AND CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT FOR ANYONE WHOSE LAND IS BEING TAKEN BY THE STATE FOR THIS Right of Way PROJECT
When the Department of Transportation condemns only part of a tract of land, the owners of the land are entitled to receive the difference between the fair market value of the entire tract immediately before the taking and the fair market value of the remaining property after the taking, less any general and special benefits.
The property must be valued for its highest and best use.
Residential and commercial property are treated differently.
If your property’s highest and best use is commercial, even though you use it as a residence, a commercial valuation may be appropriate. This project is along a mixed commercial and residential roadway, so that commercial valuation may be appropriate for some residential properties being condemned.
Investment property is also treated differently.
Farm income is admissible to determine agricultural property value.
Rental property: When rental property is condemned the owner may not recover for lost rents, but rental value of property is competent on question of fair market value of property at time of taking.
