Eminent Domain: Power of Government to Take Private Property for Public Use

1.0 NY LS/PE CE Hour

This presentation consists of the doctrine of eminent domain in the land surveying profession. The right by which a sovereign government, or some person acting in its name and its authority, may acquire private property for public or quasi-public use upon payment of reasonable compensation and without consent of the owner. The federal, state, and local government may regulate it by exercising their police power. A variety of property rights are subject to eminent domain, such as air, water, and land rights. The government takes private property through condemnation proceedings. Throughout these proceedings, the property owner has right for due process. The concept of eminent domain has existed since long back. The constitutional and statutory provisions require federal, state, and local governments and subdivisions of government to pay an owner for property taken for public use at the time the property is taken. The power of eminent domain was created to authorize the government or the condemning authority, called the condemner, to conduct a compulsory sale of property for the common welfare, such as health or safety. Just compensation is required, in order to ease the financial burden incurred by the property owner for the benefit of the public. To exercise the power of eminent domain, the government must prove that the four elements set forth in the Fifth Amendment are present. These four necessary elements (private property, must be taken, for public use and with just compensation) of this provision will be discussed in detail in the presentation.

  2. List the elements needed to be fulfilled in order to enact eminent domain doctrine.
