A condemnation action can involve a vast number of issues. Examples would be a power line crossing your property to a highway being widened and taking away a portion of your land. While some takings are nothing more than a minor inconvenience, others may have a long-term negative impact on your property. Many property owners may believe that a proposed change is “no big deal”, when in fact it could have unforeseen consequences. When facing such a situation it is in your best interest to consult a professional to insure that you are adequately compensated for whatever change the condemning agency is proposing. Our staff has experience in the valuation of properties both before and after a “taking” as well as experience in providing expert witness testimony if needed. These services are provided at an hourly rate which is based on the level of complexity of the assignment.
Litigation / Estate Planning / Tax Appraisal
Our firm not only offers services to banks and other lending agencies, but we also provide services to attorneys and individuals. We offer both current and retrospective appraisals which can assist clients in establishing property values for estate planning, various litigation actions, or for tax needs such as property donation or valuation dispute. Because these assignments can vary greatly in their complexity, they are quoted on a case by case basis.
