    Eminent Domain​

    Eminent Domain, also known as condemnation, defines the legal process by which governments gain ownership of private property, with the intent of public use. While local, state and federal government has the power to do this, the Fifth Amendment as well as the South Carolina Constitution protects private property owners.

    According to Article I, Section 13, “private property shall not be taken for private use without the consent of the owner, nor for public use without just compensation being first made for the property.”

    The government must meet these requirements:

    ·    Take private property for public purpose or public necessity
    ·    Provide just compensation (or fair market value)
