Legal Topics

The following are summary explanations of common legal topics that commonly arise in issues of Property Takings, Eminent Domain, and Land Use Regulation. The topics also include links to cases relevant to the topic, as well as links to Advisory Opinions.

As these summaries are very simplified, if you have a dispute with a local government or condemning entity and have any questions about how these issues apply to a takings issue, please contact The Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman.
