St. Louis Condemnation Lawyer

Please read this DISCLAIMER, [LINK] before reading below.

Condemnation, also known as Eminent Domain, occurs when a government entity (County, City, State, etc) acquires private land for public use by filing a condemnation lawsuit under Chapter 523 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. Generally, before a St. Louis condemnation lawyer files a condemnation lawsuit, the property owner will receive an offer to purchase the property. If an agreement on the sale price cannot be reached, or the property owner simply refuses to sell, the St. Louis condemnation attorney will send a notice under Section 523.250 of the Missouri Revised Statutes that a condemnation lawsuit will be filed.

Missouri Eminent Domain Law Firm

In the condemnation lawsuit a Missouri eminent domain law firm will ask the court to grant permission to condemn the property and to determine the fair or market value compensation for the property based on three approved property valuation methods. A significant change to the Missouri eminent domain law occurred in 2011. One of the changes made was that eminent domain can no longer be used solely for economic development under Section 523.271 of the Missouri Revised Statutes. This change can place a much higher burden on the eminent domain law firm to prove that the condemnation is for public use. Eminent domain or condemnation does not have to include the entire property. Often, the condemnation is only of a strip of property for roadways or other utilities.
