Don’t let the government take your property for less than it’s worth.
Is the state, county, or city trying to take your property? If the government is trying to take your land under its power of eminent domain in order to widen a road, build a park, or for any other public use, the law provides that you are entitled to just compensation for the taking of your property. The problem is, the government may be offering you less money for your property than you think it’s worth.
You don’t have to passively accept any offer. The power of eminent domain should not equal the power to pay below market value. To find out about your rights and options, contact the experienced Utah eminent domain lawyers at Wall & Wall, P.C.

Your Home is More than Your Greatest Financial Asset
If you are like most people, your home is your greatest asset. Perhaps you worked for years to save enough money for a down payment. You may have made home improvements with your own hands and raised children in your home. Your home is your greatest investment, both financially and emotionally. Whether you’ve lived in your home for 3 years or 103 years, you deserve to receive a fair market price for your greatest asset.

You Do Have a Choice
Many people will take an offer, any offer, because they assume they have no other choice. They are afraid if they don’t take it, they will get nothing. There are options and you owe it to yourself to find out what those options are.
You Can Get a Second Opinion
Unfortunately, property is often under-valued because the assessor hasn’t evaluated the land for its best use. For example, a parcel of land could be appraised as farmland by the state for a very low value, but if it were appraised for condominium development, it would be appraised at a much higher value. At Wall & Wall, P.C., we defended one property owner who was initially offered $250,000 by the government. We took the matter to court. In the end, the jury awarded the homeowner close to $1 million dollars.
