A question we get a lot at Sever Storey, with regards to any type of project, is some sort of variation of “my property won’t directly be taken but it will be very close?” This question becomes extremely relevant when put in the context of a proposed airport.
Airports cause a lot of issues for not only the property directly acquired for terminals and runways but for the surrounding properties. Noise pollution, among other residual effects of airports, can severely inhibit the quality of life–and hence property value–of properties abutting airports.
Noise pollution is absolutely compensable under the law, but only if the property owner takes action. Traditionally, the condemning authority will only offer compensation to those property owners directly affected. Nonetheless, a property owner may initiate what is called an “inverse condemnation” suit, which permits a landowner to sue a condemning authority for damages.
If you feel you may have an inverse claim, or are otherwise affected by an airport project, please contact our office at any time at 1-888-318-3761 or visit us on the web at https://landownerattorneys.com/.
