Appraisers Can Disagree Over the Value of a property
Private property shall ever be held inviolate to the public wel-fare. When taken
in time of war or other public exigency, imperatively requiring its immediate seizure,
or for the purpose of making or repairing roads, which shall be open to the public,
without charge, a compensation shall be made to the owner, in money, and in all other
cases, where private property shall be taken for public use, a compensation therefore
shall first be made in money, or first secured by a deposit of money, and such compensation
shall be assessed by a jury, without deduction for benefits to any property of the
owner. “(1851 Constitutional Convention, adopted effective September 1, 1851)
Eminent Domain Explained
What is Eminent Domain?
By Attorney Robert J. Mann (email@example.com)
the government authority has professional appraisers, engineers, and attorneys at
its disposal to negotiate with property owners for their land. We believe that property
owners who fail to get their own appraiser and attorney are at a significant disadvantage
in trying to compete with the government authority and its resources.
It is important to obtain your own appraisal because appraisers often disagree,
and at times disagree significantly, on how much compensation is owed to a property
owner. In fact, we have had several cases in which a property owner, before retaining
legal counsel and an appraiser, offered to settle for far less than what they later
learned their property was potentially worth.
